Biography

 
PRO: A big, athletic cornerback with the ability to excel in press coverage, Blidi Wreh-Wilson (pronounced blee-dee ray WIL-son) was selected by the Titans from the University of Connecticut in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft.  As a rookie, played in 13 games on special teams and as a reserve cornerback.  In his second campaign, he has an opportunity to compete for a starting role.  The 6-foot-1-inch, 198-pounder offers an impressive combination of size, athleticism, intelligence and footwork.  He was also a leader at UConn, earning a role as team captain as a senior and winning the team’s Most Valuable Player Award.

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS:
•    As a rookie in 2013, Wreh-Wilson played in 13 games in a reserve role and contributed nine tackles, one tackle for loss, one pass defensed and one forced fumble.  On special teams, he added five tackles and one forced fumble.
•    As a senior at Connecticut, Wreh-Wilson started 11 games and was named the team’s Most Valuable Player after contributing 47 tackles and an interception.
•    Wreh-Wilson posted collegiate career highs in starts (13), tackles (57) and interceptions (four) as a redshirt sophomore in 2010.  He returned two of his interceptions for touchdowns.  

TITANS TIDBITS:  
•    Wreh-Wilson did not play football until his senior year of high school.  His focus was on soccer and basketball until he was convinced by friends and General McLane’s head football coach to give football a try.  
•    Wreh-Wilson’s parents are natives of Liberia.  His father, D. Elliott Wreh-Wilson, came to the United States in 1980 to attend college.  After he graduated from Boston College, he went back and got Blidi’s mother, Lucinda, and his brother, Elliott Jr., and brought them to the U.S. in 1984.  Blidi was born five years later, followed by his sister, Tsuwli Lucinda.  
•    The name Blidi is literally translated as “trouble,” but he explains why his father, a philosophy professor at Edinboro University, named him that: “In Liberia there was a war, and that was the trouble.  But when I came along, he named me that with the belief I could bring peace.”
•    During his redshirt freshman season at Connecticut, Wreh-Wilson was forced to cope with a shocking tragedy: his teammate and close friend, cornerback Jasper “Jazz” Howard, was stabbed to death.  Howard’s locker was next to Wreh-Wilson’s and remained untouched for the remainder of the 2009 season.  Wreh-Wilson replaced his friend in the starting lineup, and the season ended for the Huskies with four consecutive victories, including a Papajohns.com Bowl win.
