Kyle Wilson, listed at 5’10” 190 Lbs., played 4 seasons of WAC football at Boise State. While playing with the Broncos, Wilson had 159 tackles, 10 tackles for loss, 2 sacks, 11 interceptions, 2 forced fumbles, 37 passes defended, and 2 defensive TDs. Wilson was consistent his entire college career, with his junior and senior years being his best years. His Junior season, Kyle Wilson had 35 tackles, 3 tackles for loss, 5 interceptions, and 14 passes defended. His Senior season, Kyle had 42 tackles, 4.5 tackles for loss, 1 sack, 3 interceptions, 1 forced fumble, 7 passes defended and 2 defensive TDs. Wilson was also a solid return man in college, collecting 793 punt return yards and 3 TDs. In 2008, Kyle led the NCAA in punts return for a TD with 3. In 2009, Kyle led the NCAA in interceptions returned for a TD with 2. For his efforts in 2008, Kyle Wilson was named a 2nd team All-American as well as All-WAC 1st team defense for 2008 and 2009. In the 2010 NFL Draft, Kyle Wilson was selected in the first round, 29th overall by the New York Jets. Kyle Wilson played in all 16 games in both the 2010 and 2011 seasons, only starting 6 in each season. Kyle’s best year, so far as a Jet, has been the 2011 season where he collected 41 tackles, 1 tackle for loss, 2 interceptions, and 6 passes defended. In 2010, Kyle had his best game against the Dolphins in Week 3, collecting 7 tackles. In 2011, Kyle had his best game against the Chargers in Week 7, collecting 2 tackles and 1 interception. That single interception was pivotal in the Jets win over San Diego as it came on their final drive of the game. After Revis went down with a season-ending ACL injury in Week 3 of the 2012 season, it was time for Kyle to step up. Kyle would play the rest of the season as the Jets' CB2. Kyle didn’t provide as much as we all may have liked—he played solidly the remaining 13 games but not enough to draw any major attention. Kyle’s best game came in Week 6 against the Colts, collecting 3 tackles, 1 tackle for loss, 1 forced fumble, and 1 pass defended. Kyle finished the season with 48 tackles, 1 tackle for loss, 1 interception, 1 forced fumble, and 4 passes defended. Kyle Wilson’s NFL Defensive Statistics: 110 tackles, 2 tackles for loss, 3 interceptions, 1 forced fumble, 15 passes defended My Take: With Revis having departed from NY and Milliner arriving to NY, the CB2 position is up for grabs between Wilson and Milliner. Obviously, Cromartie has the #1 spot on lock. With training camp behind us, Milliner looks like the favorite to start alongside Cro, Week 1. Thus leaving Kyle to get back to where he started, as a nickel and dime back. In my opinion, and the stats support it, Wilson does a more proficient job in the nickel and dime back position, anyway, which is ever important in a pass-heavy league. Kyle Wilson should have 42 tackles, 1 tackle for loss, 1 interception, 1 forced fumble, and 8 passes defended. Image: Getty Images
