MAJOR WRIGHT: Florida, 5114 206 4.47. Junior entry. Three-year starter. If the adage “first impressions are lasting” you will be unable to forget Major Wright exploding on the scene in the 2009 National Championship game against Oklahoma. He put a splash hit on receiver Juaquin Iglesias. What was just as impressive as the impact hit, was the timing of the collision to knock the ball out. Wright was penalized for a helmet to helmet hit, but his reputation as a big hitter was immortalized. He plays the game with intensity and passion. More athletic and faster in person than on tape. Has above average hip flexibility to turn and run deep. Not as smooth as a corner but more efficient than most safeties. Good football intelligence. Accurate key and quick reaction to what he reads. Has a nose for the ball. In a nutshell, he is a big hitting safety that needs to work on coverage skills. Will contribute on special teams. Good durability. Over his career he had 165 tackles, 10 passes broken up, 8 interceptions, and 4 forced fumbles. BTR:left 4.50, right 4.43. OSR:8/21. Third/ fourth round. (A-31, H-9 3/4, VJ-37.5, SS-4.38).
