A four-year starter for Wake Forest, Wilber led the Demon Deacons in sacks as a junior (6.5) and added 70 tackles (11.5 for loss) and 3.5 sacks as a senior. He played primarily defensive end in college but moved to outside linebacker for the final month when Wake Forest switched to a 3-4 scheme.
Wilber (6-4, 250) likely projects at outside linebacker for Rob Ryan in Dallas, adding depth with DeMarcus Ware, Anthony Spencer and Victor Butler. Spencer is returning on a one-year, $8.8 million franchise tag, and Butler is entering the final year of his 2009 rookie contract.
"It feels great that they want me to come in and help improve," Wilber said. "I know their defense is hard-hitting and they play hard, especially with Sean Lee and DeMarcus Ware – great players. It's an honor to feel wanted."
