NEW ORLEANS -- The Martez Wilson experiment, a.k.a. the conversion of New Orleans Saints' second-year pro from linebacker to defensive end this offseason, is heading to training camp.

And while the principle decision makers caution that the evaluation process is ongoing, Saints' acting head coach Joe Vitt and first-year defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo both give an enthusiastic two thumbs up.

"So far, so good with regards to how you judge his transition,'' Spagnuolo said at the conclusion of the team's offseason program in mid-June. "Any time you do something like this, the first thing you got to have is the player has to embrace the change, and he's been terrific. He has embraced it, he wants to do it and he's passionate about it.

"So what more can you ask for? ''

At least it's not a new position for him.

True, and thats why that learning curve may not be as steep as your typical LB turned DE.

This may be overly optimistic, but I'm hoping that with the right coaching Wilson can be our Aldon Smith.

Smith
6 ft 4-1/4 in
263 lb
35⅜ in
4.74 s 40
1.66 s 10
2.70 s 20
4.50 s 20-ss
7.19 s 3-cone

Wilson
6 ft 3-3/4 in
250 lb
4.42 s 40 (Wow!!!)
1.56 s 10 (Wow!!!)
2.53 s 20 (Wow!!!)
4.28 20-ss (Wow!!!)
7.04 3-cone (Wow!!!)

Wilson's measurables are absolutely freakish. The only downside I see on paper is he's a bit lighter than Smith. He might have to add about 10 lb's on his frame to make the move permanently.

He is fast but is he "quick"?

If he is quick off the line I can see him eating a QB's lunch.

Martez Wilson shouldn't eat other people's lunch. He's a real d-bag.

Look at that 10 yard split time. The dude is definitely quick.
