A cornerback for the Arizona Cardinals of the National Football League, Marco Wilson is a professional football player. He stands 1.83 meters tall and weighs 87 kilograms. He attended the American Heritage School for his high school education as well as his football career. Despite receiving offers from Miami (Fla.), Georgia, Ohio State, and Southern California, he decided to play collegiate football at Florida.
He participated in college football with the Florida Gators at Florida. He made his debut as a true freshman and finished with 34 tackles and 10 passes intercepted. Prior to the start of his sophomore year, he was selected to the third team of the All-SEC, but he tore his ACL two games in, forcing him to sit out the remainder of the year.
In his second season as a redshirt sophomore, he made 36 tackles, 2.5 tackles for a loss, 3 interceptions, and 2 passes broken up. He made headlines as a junior when, late in a game in December 2020, he famously threw a shoe as a celebratory gesture. This led to a penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct, which gave LSU a first down. As the 136th overall choice in the 2021 NFL Draft, Wilson was selected by the Arizona Cardinals in the fourth round.
His four-year rookie deal with the Cardinals was inked in May 2021. He was a starting cornerback when he began his rookie campaign in 2021, and at the end of the campaign, he had made 48 tackles, caused two turnovers, and intercepted two passes in 14 games and 13 starts.
