Kyle Wilber off to fast start
So far through the rookie minicamp the Wake Forest linebacker has proven to be what was advertised.
“I can jam tight ends,” Wilber said. “I can be physical with wide receivers, but I also can pass rush. I have a sneaky inside move and I’m smart. I’ve got a motor on me. I’ll keep going.”
The Cowboys are using Wilber at the strong side outside linebacker spot, which is where Anthony Spencer plays.
Wake Forest played a different version of a 3-4 defense than Rob Ryan’s version of the scheme. Wilber said he could play behind Spencer and DeMarcus Ware.
“They said it doesn’t really matter now, just learn the whole defense,” Wilber said.
Like all of the rookies at Valley Ranch this weekend, Wilber finds himself thinking more than he wants.
“I guess I’d say it’s harder,” Wilber said of the Cowboys’ playbook. "It’s a lot more because I’m not used to it yet. I’m not yet comfortable with it. At Wake we had a lot of plays, but I was confident with it because I knew it. Once I get an understanding o the playbook I’ll be a lot more comfortable.”
