Thats why the whole thing about staying in school holds no water for the most part. look at Leinhart he stayed and will be drafted lower probably. I like wright quite a bit but don't think DT is a huge need but he if we drafted him I would be ok.

You can call him a fool if you want, but he got the one thing money can't buy. The experience of winning A National Championship.

In the long run, if he produces at the next level he will get his.
His stock has fallen, but as already noted, he has a National Championship.
He will still be a high 2nd round draft pick, not sure he would have gone much higher last year. IMO

He's climbing the board again. I don't think he'd have gone any higher last year, plus he has a national title. We play the games to win.

he woulda been a first rounder last year i think... but yeah winning that national championship gotta feel pretty damn good...

Martel

Oh...I was under the impression that he was lookin like a 4-5 rounder this year. If he goes round 2 then that's all good. I just remember seeing mocks last year (I think Kiper) had him going 20 overall.

I would rather be a top 20 NFL pick then win a NCAA title in any sport, any day of the week. JMO.

That's the difference in being Selfish or Selfless. He didn't care about going higher in the draft. He felt he could be a team player and help his team win a national title. He was looking after his team first rather than how much money he was going to make. I applaud his decision last year.

I watched him in the Rose bowl. Taitusi Lutui owned him.
He just didn't seem like he was playing as hard as he could.

Its always possible but its almost always about the money.

Would Rodrique be a good pick for Miami

Wow, he is still undrafted? Why did he fall so far?

I dont think he planned on dropping this much though.......I bet he probally thought his stock would stay the same or rise......

agreed,I think this has alot to do with his fall thus far

Staying in school when you'll be a high pick is never a good decision IMO. The money that you can get can set up not only yourself, but your entire family as well.

I've heard it said that it was a selfless move as opposed to being selfish and coming out early. I don't call setting up your entire family financially, "selfish."

He stayed behind. Had a great year. Got a degree. Added muscle.


Had a slow 40 time.

all we need to do is get Will Derting to assist with Zach Thomas in the middle....and we are set. Will was given good ratings on nfl.com!!

I have to say I wasn't at all impressed with Wright in the Rose bowl. Totally non existent in the game. Taitusi Lutui completly owned him in the game. And even had him one on one in passing situations and Wright didn't do anything. Good pick in the 7th.
Hopefully he'll be able to show something and be used as a rotational player.

He played with a more consistent motor when he was healthy as a senior and he also showed more versatility playing DT, NT and even DE throughout the course of the season.
There's that word again.

Reword this to 'how much money did we save by Rod Wright going back to school?' :wink:

yea, I would take College education + national championsip + 7th round over 1st round and non of that^. If he plays well, like the 1st rounder that he was, then he WILL get his money. In a few years if he becomes a starter and plays well, he can ask for more money which he deserves. If not, as long as he has a contract he can feed his family. And if he doesnt, hes got the college education.

In a couple of years we could potentially trade him for a 1st round pick...

He did have the HUGE stop late in the game on 4th and 2 during USC's attempted comeback

So we can package it with more picks, trade up and draft another defensive tackle who is less talented and experiened :rolleyes:

Don't you know the NFL is not about team success, but about how many draft picks one has

Yea I think I was absent on the day that memo came through :shakeno: . The kid who had a great career, made a HUGE, probably game-saving, stop in the rose bowl, and had a good enough head on his shoulders to ignore all the hype last year and go back for his degree and, turns out, win the national championship apparently is a bad pick. He is 1st day talent, and I have no CLUE why he slid to us, but I'm definately not complaining. It's OK Hyster, WE know what he can do, GO LONGHORNS.
