    Kyle Wilber, the first of the Cowboys’ two fourth-round picks, has experience at both defensive end and outside linebacker, but the Cowboys want him at outside linebacker.

    “They really like me at outside linebacker on the opposite side of DeMarcus Ware,” he said.

    Wilber played his first two seasons at Wake Forest at defensive end. He moved to outside linebacker when the school switched to a 3-4, and he said that let him show his athleticism.

    “A lot of teams told me that I had bad hips, and I was able to prove to them my senior year and show them that I’m actually able to drop into zone coverages and re-route receivers and athletic enough to stay with running backs and tight ends,” he said.
