Wilson joins Nathan Palmer and Gerell Robinson as receivers on the Broncos’ practice squad, and continues their theme of picking up smaller receivers in recent months.
Wilson is a hair under 5’11” and 175 pounds, and is a former JUCO transfer who played two years for the Rams at Fordham. He didn’t put up ridiculous numbers, but had a great showing at the Pro Day, posting a 4.51 second 40 yard dash.
The Broncos had previously worked out Wilson with a number of different players that are likely under constant consideration for practice squad and reserve/future contracts.
As of right now, the Broncos only carry four true wide receivers on the roster, but utilize Julius Thomas as a receiver oftentimes, and also have Trindon Holliday occupying a roster spot as a receiver even though he is almost strictly a return specialist.
Those who scout smaller school prospects seem pretty excited about Wilson, saying he had a great senior campaign at Fordham with good hands and speed.
Leading up to the 2013 NFL Draft, Wilson had worked out for the Giants and 49ers.
