2012 NFL Draft: D.C. Native Tavon Wilson, Maryland Native Zach Brown Drafted In 2nd Round

Two local products were selected in the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft in New York City Friday night.

First, the New England Patriots selected Tavon Wilson with the 48th overall pick. Wilson, a D.C. native and a graduate of H.D. Woodson High School, was a two-time Honorable Mention All-Big Ten team member while a member of the Illinois Fightning Illini. The selection of Wilson was a surprise, since most draft analysts had him going undrafted. Wilson is described as a combination corner and free safety, who can help an NFL team with his versatility.

Four picks later, the Tennessee Titans selected Zach Brown with the 52nd overall pick. Brown is a native of Columbia, Maryland and a graduate of Wilde Lake High School and Hargrave Military Academy. Brown was a First-Team All-ACC selection and was a semifinalist for the Butkus Award in 2011.
