Major Wright, FS, Florida

Wright sometimes got lost in a sea of Florida superstars, but he was without question a solid performer for three years in Gainesville. The free safety played all 13 games as a freshman in 2007, starting seven of them, and started all 14 of his team's games a year later. Wright picked off four passes in 2008 and recorded nine tackles in the National Championship win over Oklahoma -- a big reason why the media named him to the Preseason All-SEC First Team prior to last season. He did not quite live up to expectations as a senior, compiling a pedestrian 28 solo tackles and 32 total tackles. Wright tied for second on the squad with three interceptions. While his game should translate well to the next level, he does not have the size, for example, of Taylor Mays or the speed of Eric Berry. Wright is listed generously at 6'1' and 204 pounds. He ran a 4.44 in the 40-yard dash at the NFL combine which is a fast time but he really could have improved his draft stock by going under 4.40. Another season at Florida could have done Wright some good and perhaps warranted him a first-round selection in the 2011 draft. For now, Wright should not slip past the third round of this year's selection show.
