Titans rookie cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson is in the early days of his professional career, just beginning to learn what it means to jump from the collegiate ranks to the NFL.

But quickly adapting to new circumstances is one thing that hasn’t been much of a problem for Wreh-Wilson over the years.

He didn’t play high school football until his senior season, but made such a fast impression that he earned multiple college scholarship offers. He played under a handful of different coaches at the University of Connecticut, but still earned his team’s most valuable player award as a senior and was picked by the Titans in the draft’s third round.

So maybe it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Wreh-Wilson’s ability to learn is one of the first traits that’s impressed Titans assistant secondary coach Steve Brown during OTAs this week.

“One thing that really pops out at you quickest is how mature and intelligent he is,” Brown said of Wreh-Wilson. “Coming from Connecticut and being with Coach (Paul) Pasqualoni, he’s naturally used to more of a pro-style defense, but he’s still very, very sharp and very intense.

“He’s just absorbing everything. Does he have everything down 100 percent? No, but it’s close, even at this embryo stage that he’s in.”

Why did Wreh-Wilson get such a late start on the high school front in his native Pennsylvania?

He’d actually played football in middle school, but concerned about a lack of size, Wreh-Wilson opted for the soccer field during his first three years at high school.

“Then I hit a growth spurt before my senior year and got back to what I wanted to play, which was football,” the 6-foot-1, 195-pound Wreh-Wilson said. “I think I made a pretty good decision.”

Wreh-Wilson was recruited by Randy Edsall at Connecticut and spent his first three years (including a redshirt season) playing for him, but it was Pasqualoni who coached Wreh-Wilson during his final two seasons. The shuffling of coaches meant that Wreh-Wilson not only played for two head coaches, but two defensive coordinators and three cornerbacks coaches with the Huskies.

“I played in so many different systems that there’s never been one where I just got completely comfortable,” Wreh-Wilson, 23, said. “So my techniques were always flipping and changing. I was just trying to adapt, especially because I hadn’t even started playing high school until my senior year. So it was kind of tough on me, but I just tried to stick to it.”

Brown says he sees some positives in all the coaching Wreh-Wilson received.
