Wreh-Wilson is a tall, tough corner. He owns the closing speed to cut down receivers quickly after the catch when playing off, and uses his long arms to knock the ball away out of their hands. But he also presents short-area foot quickness to stay with receivers when tight on the line, as well as the powerful extension to knock them off their routes.
