Rodrique Wright - DT

 Rodrique Wright Grade: 3.52
 Position: DT
 Class: Sr
 School: Texas
 Conference: Big Twelve
 Ht., Wt.: 6-5, 300
 40 Time: 5.14
  Selected by: Miami Dolphins
  Round 7, pick 18 (226 overall)

BIO: Four-year starter awarded All-Conference honors since his sophomore campaign and All-American honors the past two years. Senior totals included 46/13/4.5 after 36/3/1 as a junior. Career-best numbers of 80/12/7.5 came as a sophomore.

POSITIVES: Athletic defensive tackle who makes plays in all directions of the field. Quick off the snap and tough to move off the point. Wedges between double-team blocks, slides off opponents laterally and redirects to the action. Flashes power, pushing opponents off the ball.

NEGATIVES: Does not play with a sense of urgency and seemingly gives up on plays after being initially blocked. Must improve his hand technique.

ANALYSIS: Flashing dominance in spurts, Wright has watched his play level off the past two seasons. Offers a great amount of upside yet needs to be consistently prodded.

PROJECTION: Mid Fourth Round
