Kyle Wilber wants to 'destroy' QBs
That became more than a feeling when the Cowboys took Wilber in the fourth round Saturday. He became the first Cowboys’ pick to have met with the team in person before the draft.
“They put me on the board, tested me and told me their scheme and the defense,” Wilber said. “I had to take a test and try to remember everything they were doing.”
How did he do?
“Rob [Ryan] told me I was the best one so far,” Wilber said.
The Cowboys plan on playing Wilber at strong-side outside linebacker behind Anthony Spencer, who signed his franchise tender last week. Wilber had 13.5 sacks in 43 games at Wake Forest but also had 35.5 tackles for loss.
Wilber said he didn’t know much about Spencer, but he knew a lot about Ware.
“He’s a tremendous player,” Wilber said. “He’s a beast on the field. He looks like a monster really. I try to at least play like him, be physical with offensive tackles and tight ends and try to destroy the quarterback.”
