Follow Martez Wilson's journey to the NFL Draft
NFL Draft Week

April 25, 2011

As of today it’s 3 days until draft day.  I started this tumblr so that my friends, family & fans can follow me to my journey.  But after this week, I realized that my journey is only beginning.  This is definitely the longest week in April and it’s only Monday!

Today I’ve had 3 interviews…one for Connect FM, radio station in Chambana; another one with sports writer Shannon Ryan of the Chicago Tribune; and lastly an interview with another radio station in Champaign…107.1.  Tomorrow I talk to ESPN Chicago. 

I cannot thank Chicago and Champaign enough for the love and support that they’ve given me.  It truly means the world to me that they want to hear from me all the way up until the draft.

I’ve posted the interview from Connect FM and will post the others once I’m able.

My boy Nate Bussey, former Illini teammate, just killed the LA combine.  Please support him also and follow him on his tumblr.  Like me, he’s working just as hard to fulfill the NFL Dream.  Click on the title to be taken to his blog.

I’ve had a very busy schedule visiting with various NFL teams.  Since it’s already been all over the internet, I will confirm that I did indeed meet with the Ravens & the Dallas Cowboys.  This whole process is really humbling for me.  I thank God every day for giving me this blessing.  No matter what team I go to, I will play my best…continuing to work hard & staying humble.  I will make the city I go to proud and I will ALWAYS represent for Chicago & Illini!


Hey everyone, please take the time to follow my former Illini teammate LB Nate Bussey on his tumblr as well.  Like me, we are both working hard to fulfill our dream.  Thank you for your support!  Just click on the title to be taken to his blog.
