Strengths: Has good size. Is strong, physical and competitive. Is a reliable open-field tackler with power. He has a nose for the ball and is very willing in run support. He lacks ideal speed but is a smooth athlete for his size. Has some upside if he can stay healthy. Best suited to play in a cover-2 scheme.

Weaknesses: Knee problems are a huge concern. He was never a fulltime starter at the collegiate level and lacks ideal playing experience. Needs a lot of technique work. He has decent but not good straight-line speed. Mental capacity a concern; scored a 13 on Wonderlic Test.

Overall: Wishom redshirted in 2000 and saw limited time as a reserve in the first four games of the 2001 season before suffering a torn right ACL. He had a bounce-back season in 2002, when he played in all 12 games as a sub-package cornerback. He started two games and played in 10 others as a junior in 2003, finishing with 28 tackles, five passes broken up and two interceptions. He also returned 10 punts for 80 yard and six kickoffs for 91 yards. He had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee in the off-season and wound up only playing in seven games (missing five because of injury) as a senior in 2004. Wishom is a developmental prospect with good size and athletic ability. However, his inability to stay healthy combined with his poor experience and just decent speed make him nothing more than a seventh round or free agent prospect in the 2005 NFL draft class.
