With the 46th pick of Pride of Detroit's 2011 NFL Mock Draft, the Denver Broncos select Illinois linebacker Martez Wilson. CapitolLions is serving as the Broncos' general manager, and his reasoning for the pick is below.

In Denver, we are almost speechless to see Martez still on the board. Adding Wilson to Von Miller and Phil Taylor will give the Broncos a young nucleus most teams would do anything to get.  Wilson is a tackling machine and is as fast as you could ask for in an ILB.  He projects to be very solid in pass coverage from day one and once he settles his minor issue with over pursuing on counters and being fooled by the draw, he will be an excellent run defender as well.  We in the front office are more than ecstatic to have what we consider the No. 1 ILB prospect in the middle of the second round.
