Illinois LB is the the Saints third selection of the 2011 NFL Draft


The Saints selected Illinois LB Martez Wilson with the 72nd selection of the 2011 NFL Draft Friday night.

One of the most coveted defenders in the country coming out of high school, the 2010 season saw Wilson live up to those lofty expectations. He earned All-Big Ten Conference first-team honors in 2010, a season that catapulted him among the top inside linebacker prospects eligible for the 2011 NFL Draft.

ESPN's talking heads say he can play any LB position. I can already see GW grinning evilly and designing new schemes.

2011 NFL Mock Draft Pick No. 58: Martez Wilson, LB, Illinois

This pick makes a lot of sense for the Ravens who need to concede that it's time to find a successor for Ray Lewis.

Wilson the best inside linebacker prospect available and has a great combination of both size and speed at 6'4", 250 lbs and a 40 time of 4.42 seconds. He knows how to use his size and has an excellent understanding of football.

There are already a few young linebackers on the roster in Tavares Gooden and Dannell Ellerbe, however, none have proven they can carry the workload once Lewis calls it quits.

Wilson's presence on the roster will give them another young talent to possible groom to replace Lewis.

Hartley is good, Yes he missed 3 kicks any Kicker should make 100% of the time. I know if he would have a made that kick against the falcons, everything might have been different. But overall I think he is a solid kicker, plus with carney on the sidelines coaching him up. He could turn into the next great kicker.

The Saints will trade their 3rd and two 7's to move up for a kicker.

We are just killing it these past two days. Martez right here in the third is a hell of a lot of value. He has the size, strength, speed, and athleticism to be an impact player. After the combine he was mocked in multiple drafts to us at 24.
