K.J. Wright, OLB, Mississippi State

Wright was a three-year stater at Mississippi State and a consistent leader of the defense. He finished second on the team in tackles each of the last two seasons, making 47 solo and 98 total in 2010. Wright also was third on the team with eight tackles for loss, second with three sacks, second with nine passes defensed, second with nine pass breakups, second with four quarterback hurries, and he also recorded a sack and a fumble recovery.

Standing at 6'3'' and 246 pounds, Wright boasts an impressive combination of size and speed, as he has been clocked as fast a 4.59 in the 40-yard dash. His pass-coverage skills are beyond stellar for a linebacker. He also has some of the longest arms at his position, and his wing-span helps him both against the pass and in making tackles. Wright is also more than capable of getting to the quarterback and he will have to do that especially in third-down situations. However, Wright must improve his fundamentals--especially in the tackling department--in order to become a star at the next level. Look for him to go off the board during the third round of the 2011 NFL Draft.
