K.J. Wright to Seattle Seahawks: 2011 NFL Draft Scouting Report

Dylan MacNamara@@DylanMacNamaraSenior Writer IApril 30, 2011

K.J. Wright has a lot of high-level experience, contributing for the Mississippi State Bulldogs for four years.

Though he didn't arrive on campus as a sure-fire star, Wright made his name on special teams and in spot duty on defense, before forcing his way into a more consistent role during his sophomore season.

Wright has great size (6'3", 250 lbs.) and has shown a consistent ability to get to the quarterback when's asked to blitz. He also has good quickness in small spaces for a man of his size.

However, Wright isn't great in coverage and will probably translate as more of a pass-rusher, short down LB than an every down player.

He offers good value for the Seahawks in the fourth round and should figure in to their special teams unit as a rookie.
