The Bucs have decided to select CB Chris Wilcox with 251st overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
— NFL Draft (@NFLDraft) May 1, 2021
Trask hails from Brigham Young University. He was the Cougars’ starting cornerback for three years before declaring for the NFL Draft in 2021.
Below is Wilcox’s scouting report, per The Athletic’s Dane Brugler:
“A three-year starter at BYU, Wilcox played right outside cornerback in head coach Kalani Sitake’s defense, playing mostly zone coverage. A high school safety, he moved to cornerback in Provo and his career was split between intriguing flashes and nagging injuries. Wilcox didn’t have the most entertaining tape because he wasn’t targeted very often (2.6 times per game in 2020), which contributed to his lack of production. But regardless, eight passes defended and zero interceptions over 41 games played are not the numbers you want to see. Overall, Wilcox has outstanding size and speed, but he is very raw instinctually and technically with immature ball anticipation. He projects as a developmental cornerback who will need to show out (and stay healthy) on special teams.”
