Martez Wilson said the Bears were one of three teams that have interviewed him at the combine so far. That's fine with the former Illinois linebacker, who would mind doing what fellow Simeon graduate Derrick Rose is doing --- playing for his hometown team.
"If I could that would be great to play for a team I grew up rooting for but no matter who drafts me I'll be happy," he said.
Wilson is ranked among the top inside linebackers in 2011 draft class after leading the Illini with 112 tackles last season.
"If I do everything well that I need to do here and continue to improve even after the combine and impress scouts, impress coaches and general managers, I think my chances are very high," Wilson said when asked if he could be a first-round pick. "I'm confident in myself and I'll be working very hard. The sky is the limit."
