Comparison

K.J. Wright Seattle Seahawks

Long, athletic build with plenty of room to add size. Rush end type who can play outside linebacker. Explosive at the snap. Fires off low. Excellent body control. Plays with purpose and suddenness. Covers ground quickly in first two steps. Productive player who is disruptive behind line of scrimmage. Reacts quickly. Changes direction well. Can run to the sidelines. Has ability to drop into coverage. Has to work on disengaging and using hands more. Has to improve footwork in coverage and show he can match up with tight end. Increasing strength important. Multi-year starter at Top 20 program. Day 3 NFL draft potential.
