Top Draft Pick Josh Wilson Ready for Camp

Posted Jul 26, 2007

On Thursday, the Seahawks announced the signing of their second-round pick, Maryland cornerback Josh Wilson. Terms of the contract are undisclosed at this time.

The 5’9.5”, 188-pound former Terrapin will find himself in nickel coverage and on the return teams to begin his NFL career.

“On special teams, I can be put into any situation there,” Wilson told Seahawks.NET’s Doug Farrar shortly after he was drafted. “I returned kicks throughout my career at Maryland, and I did whatever the team needed. That’s what I plan to bring to the Seattle Seahawks - whatever my team needs to be successful and win and to go to that next level.”

Wilson averaged 27.3 yards per return as a senior in 2006 and had a 100-yard return for a touchdown vs. Georgia Tech.

At defensive back, Wilson started the last 24 games of his college career and finished with 28 starts in 41 games. He was excellent in 2005 as a true junior, posting 73 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss, two sacks, eight passes defensed and one interception.

Seattle’s minicamp begins for the rookies today. Veterans report on Saturday, July 28th.
