Despite shining on film, Scooby Wright posts disappointing combine numbers
LB Scooby Wright was a unanimous All-American and Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year, but many questioned his overall athleticism heading into the NFL combine. He confirmed those suspicions with a 4.90 40-yard dash time and a 9'5" broad jump. Wright lives off his killer instincts and awareness, but he will need to speed up and increase his intangibles to succeed in the NFL.
Scooby Wright is hard to project as both a draft selection and an NFL player. I believe his instincts could allow him to play well at the next level, but a 4.9 40-yard dash could have significantly dropped him on draft boards. He will likely be a mid-round developmental inside backer for his new team.
