Wilkerson spoke with head coach Tom Coughlin. Wilkerson -- who is from Linden, N.J. -- is considered a local prospect so his visit doesn’t count as one of the 30 visits teams are allowed to have from prospects to their facilities.
The 6-4, 315-pound Wilkerson is considered to be a top-25 talent. He certainly would be nice to have in case the Giants can’t keep Barry Cofield, who says he would consider asking for a trade if he has to play under a one-year restricted free agent tender for the second straight year.
Wilkerson’s teammate, Jaiquawn Jarrett, was also supposed to meet with the Giants on Wednesday according to the New York Daily News. The safety is also considered a local prospect since he’s from Brooklyn, NY.
