Round 4, pick 2 (99th pick overall) K.J. Wright, OLB, Mississippi State. 6-foot-3, 246 pounds.
A hybrid defender who can play outside linebacker in a 4-3 defense and rush the passer in certain 3-4 looks, Wright passed up Auburn, Arkansas, Ole Miss and South Carolina to stay in-state. Excelling as a pure tackler, Wright finished his collegiate career with 259 tackles (131 solo), 23.5 tackles for loss, nine sacks, 14 passes defensed, three forced fumbles, and 11 quarterback hurries. Ran a 4.75 40-yard dash at the scouting combine, which may have dropped his stock a bit. But he is a versatile player who switched between strong-side and weak-side linebacker positions. Think of him as a Dexter Davis-style depth pick with rotation potential. Played in each of the possible 47 games in which he could have participated and started 35.
Round 4, pick 10 (107th pick overall) Kris Durham, WR, Georgia. 6-foot-5, 216 pounds.READ MORE»
