While Nick Foles and Juron Criner have worked their way to the first and second rounds after their careers as Arizona Wildcats, cornerback Trevin Wade is working to improve his draft stock after a late-round projection. While most feel the senior corner will not be selected until the sixth or seventh round, the time is now for Wade, who was a fan-favorite in Tucson, to step up in workouts and drills.
While he practices for the East-West Shrine Game, it sounds like Wade is making all the right moves, according to this latest update from Scouts Inc. of ESPN.
Arizona CB Trevin Wade had a solid showing on Day 2. He showed some instincts and looked loose in the hips, flashing the ability to transition easily when changing direction. In addition, Wade made a nice play when caught in trail technique in one-on-one drills, turning to locate an underthrown ball and high-pointing it for the interception. His overall speed is a question, but Wade could help his late-round stock if he continues to make plays.
Wade earned himself a reputation of being a hard worker while in Tucson and was the leader of the defensive unit these past two years. He may not be a big name as of right now and his draft stock may be low, but whichever team takes a chance on him will not regret it. They will be getting a talented kid capable of making plays, who is also a first-rate teammate.
