Illinois LB Martez Wilson Blazes in 40-Yard Dash

We introduced Illinois linebacker Martez Wilsonto Baltimore Beatdown's readers a week or so ago and now his performance in the 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine today illuminates his name even more. Martez led the linebacker group with a dash of 4.49 seconds, fast enough to catch running backs from behind in the NFL.

While Wilson is not projected to be a first round pick and is nowhere in the class of Texas A&M's Von Miller, he certainly improved or at the very least confirmed his draft-worthy status with that display of speed for a big guy.

See the story on the National Footbal Post.
