For the second straight day, an ESPN draft guru said Thursday morning that former Boise State cornerback Kyle Wilson could be selected in the first round of the NFL Draft.
Mel Kiper Jr. made the case for Wilson on Thursday morning on SportsCenter. He didn't have Wilson listed among his top five cornerbacks going into this week's Senior Bowl practices.
"Had an inconsistent year, but great leader, student of the game, great athletic ability, he's been strong in coverage," Kiper Jr. said. "He may have moved ... into the late first round."
Todd McShay, who often disagrees with Kiper Jr., made similar comments Wednesday morning.
Wilson plays in the Senior Bowl on Saturday.
Idaho guard Mike Iupati made Sporting News Today's list of the five players starring at the Senior Bowl.
"With mammoth size and a nasty disposition on the field, Iupati has been punishing defensive linemen in drills," the story said.
