With their first seventh round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft they take James Wiggins from the Cincinnati Bearcats.
A look from Big Blue View:
Wiggins is an experienced and smart player who reads offenses quickly, wasting little time in diagnosing the play and acting on his read. He shows good awareness of the play as a zone defender, quickly reacting to route concepts as well as trusting his eyes when reading the quarterback. He has a strong closing burst and uses his length and instincts well to be disruptive at the catch point. Wiggins also flashes quick feet and hips that are fluid for a safety, appearing to move comfortably in space.
He has a quick trigger downhill as a run defender and is unafraid of contact. Wiggins generally takes efficient angles to the ball, putting himself in position to tackle with good form. He is a wrap-up tackler who tries to get the ball carrier on the ground first, but is also capable of delivering big hits.
