E.J. Wilson has a goal in life, and it has nothing to do with getting his face on the cover of Sports Illustrated or even ESPN the Magazine.
No, the defensive end from North Carolina and the Seahawks’ second pick in the fourth round of the NFL draft, has other aspirations: The cover of Forbes.
“I also want to branch out into the business world and have success there,” Wilson said this morning during a conference-call interview. “I feel like that would be a real accomplishment, because a lot of people can say they are on the cover of Sports Illustrated or ESPN the Magazine. But there are not too many people that can say they are on the cover of Forbes.
“So that has always been a dream of mine growing up as a kid. As a kid, I was a big academics kid – kind of a nerd. I used to read the encyclopedia for fun.”
