Jimmy Wilson, a University of Montana defensive back who spent 25 months in a Los Angeles jail before he was acquitted of 2007 murder charges, is drawing attention from NFL teams that believe he may be a worthy late-round draft pick or a priority undrafted free agent.
Wilson has visits scheduled with the St. Louis Rams (http://espn.go.com/nfl/team/_/name/stl/st-louis-rams) on Monday and *the Miami Dolphins (http://espn.go.com/nfl/team/_/name/mia/miami-dolphins) on Tuesday*. He has had recent visits with the Indianapolis Colts (http://espn.go.com/nfl/team/_/name/ind/indianapolis-colts) and Seattle Seahawks (http://espn.go.com/nfl/team/_/name/sea/seattle-seahawks).
"I don't think teams doubt that I have the physical ability to play in the NFL and they like my style of play," Wilson said Sunday. "They want to know whether I have my personal life on a positive track. They can't get a feel by just reading about my story in the newspapers. I think teams have been pleasantly surprised once they meet me and get to know me."
