Alfie's Player Ranking 37 out of 100

Projected Round: 1-2

Today continues my countdown to the Top 100 draftable players of the 2011 NFL Draft. We move on to my 37th ranked player, Illinois linebacker Martez Wilson.

Height: 6-4

Weight: 240lbs

PROS: Excellent size for the linebacker position. Might be ideal fit in a 3-4 scheme because of his size. Flows to the football well and can get to the ball carrier off his blocks. Has experience at every linebacker position and at defensive end. Will make an immediate impact on special teams.

CONS: Speed is a big question. Can run him self out of plays and struggles making quick cuts and changing direction. Missed time in 2008 because of team rules and missied much of 2009 due to injury. Not a great tackler, relies on his upperbody strength to bring guys down.
