Ford, a product of Cardinal Newman High School in West Palm Beach, was the fastest wide receiver at the Combine in Indianapolis, running a 4.28. Wright, who played at St. Thomas Aquinas in Fort Lauderdale, turned in a solid 4.48 at the same venue. By way of comparison, the top-rated safety in the draft, Eric Berry of Tennessee, ran a 4.47.
Ford, who is projected to be picked in the second round, said he “definitely” could become the deep threat the Dolphins are looking at despite his smallish size at 5-foot-9 and 186 pounds. Ted Ginn Jr., who has had that role, is not a lot bigger at 5-11, 180. Wright is largely projected as a strong safety, but insisted he could fill the Dolphins’ need at free safety if they try him there. He’s expected to go in the third or fourth rounds.
“Put me on the field and I’ll play it,” he said.

I don't see Wright being "largely projected" as a strong safety. He's listed as a free safety with NFL Draft Scout. And for good reason.

I agree. I am dumbfounded because everywhere I read anything on him it is reference to the SS position. He played FS at Florida. I have read where there are concerns about his backpedal and change of direction. Maybe that is the reason for the projection, but I see him more as a FS.

I've always seen Major as a SS in the pros. I never liked his coverage skills for a FS. Maybe I'd be more open to the idea of trying him out there if the Phins didn't already try and fail to put a SS at FS. But now, I want a natural ball-hawking FS. That's not Major.

He will, however, knock plenty of snot out of plenty opposing players at SS.
