The New England Patriots have worked out Oklahoma cornerback Julian Wilson, according to the National Football Post’s Aaron Wilson.
The 6-foot-2, 205-pound Sooner played in 48 collegiate games and started 26 dating back to his redshirt freshman season in 2011, when he served as a special-teamer and a reserve safety.
In 2013, Wilson started 11 games at corner and intercepted three passes. And in 2014, the fifth-year senior started nine contests there, playing through a broken thumb for all but the Russell Athletic Bowl to finish with 39 tackles, a 100-yard interception returned for a touchdown, as well as seven pass deflections.
The three-time Academic All-Big 12 selection was invited to the NFL Scouting Combine in February. While there, he clocked a 4.58 40-yard dash, a 6.94 three-cone drill, a 4.22 short-shuttle and a 11.53 60-yard shuttle. And in addition, he leaped for a 36-inch vertical and a 125-inch broad jump.
Wilson, who’s projected as a late-round pick or priority free agent in the 2015 NFL draft later this month, ran the 40 between 4.47 and 4.48 seconds at the Oklahoma pro day March 14.
He’s also worked out for the Philadelphia Eagles, and reportedly has another one upcoming with the Atlanta Falcons.
