Wilson compared to Miami LB

Illinois LB Martez Wilson, largely ranked as the best ILB in this year’s draft class and profiled on the home page of Buffalobills.com today (Friday), has often been compared to a certain Miami Dolphins linebacker in terms of skills and playmaking ability.

Wilson has drawn comparisons to the Dolphins Karlos Dansby with a similar build and playing style. The Fighting Illini naturally doesn’t mind the comparisons.

“I’ve heard that a lot,” Wilson said. “I could definitely see myself as a similarity to Karlos. We’re both tall and got long arms. Actually our play styles are very similar. That’s a great comparison, he’s a great linebacker. Just to have that type of comparison, someone who is
in the NFL is just a great accomplishment.”

Much like Dansby did in the 2004 draft when he was taken 33rd overall, Wilson figures to go somewhere in the top of round two.
