Martez Wilson   #56 DE

Height: 6-4   Weight: 260   Age: 26

Born: 9/21/1988 Chicago , IL

College: Illinois

Experience: 4th season

High School: Simeon Career Acad. [Chicago, IL]









Draft 2011

Pick No.72

Selected By: New Orleans Saints

Round: 3

Pick (Overall): 8 (72)

Pick Analysis: Wilson is a pretty impressive physical specimen with good measurables. Probably projects best as a strong side outside linebacker in a 4-3. At that position, should be able to hold outside contain using his long arms and strength to keep tight ends off his body against the run, and jam at the line or pressure the quarterback in passing situations. Is susceptible to good ball handling and doesn't show good awareness dropping into coverage. Has character flags and endurance has been questioned. However, Wilson's frame, straight-line speed, and upside will likely entice a franchise to select him on Day 2.
