NFL Draft: Jimmy Wilson might have the best path-to-the-draft story in 2011. He was a University of Montana defensive back when on June 2, 2007, he accidentally killed an abusive boyfriend of his aunt. “Wilson said an intoxicated Smoot came out of the garage with a rifle. A struggle ensued, the rifle discharged and Smoot ran from the scene, believing he was being shot at. When he heard his aunt scream, he said he turned and realized Smoot was dead.” After two trials and 25 months in jail, a jury acquitted him. The NCAA gave Wilson a 6th year of eligibility, and he played CB/S last year, earning All Big Sky honors. [Mort]
