NFL Comparison: Josh Wilson

Jayron Hosley is an undersized corner with a ton of playmaking ability. One thing that shows up in my notes a lot when watching Hosley is “football player.” He may not have ideal size but he’s a guy that brings it on every play and gets the most out of his body. He’s willing to come up and help in the run game despite the obvious size disparity. Technically, Hosley has some improvements to make across the board as his footwork can be a little choppy, he gets high in his backpedal at times, and he’s quick to open up his hips. That being said, he projects well as a nickel corner and return man right now and has the ability to be a full-time starter. His best fit is probably in a cover two or zone scheme but I believe he is adequate enough in all areas to play in any scheme, particularly as a nickel. Some good fits for him would be Detroit, New England, and Pittsburgh.
