The Bears took Florida safety Major Wright with the 75th overall pick in the third round of the 2010 draft, their first pick of the event.
Wright is known for his toughness and aggressive hitting. He’s good in run support and run recognition. He’s got football smarts and is instinctive.
Negatives against him are his speed and strength as well as his stiffness out of breaks.
In three years at Florida, Wright finished with 165 tackles, 8 interceptions, and 4 forced fumbles.
