Biography: Three-year starter who finished with 98/8/3 as a senior when he also broke up nine passes. Junior numbers included 82/6.5/2.
Positives: "Athletic, playmaking linebacker with terrific size/speed numbers. Effective in pursuit, fast out to the flanks and covers a lot of area on the field. Gets depth on pass drops, possesses a quick first step to the action, and makes plays in space. Effectively uses his hands to protect himself and breaks down well. Works well with teammates and remains disciplined with assignments."
Negatives: Adequate instincts yet slow reacting to the action on occasion. Does not display a killer instinct.
Analysis: Wright has been a consistent defender at Mississippi State and possesses the athleticism and measurables to be used in a variety of systems as an outside linebacker at the next level.
