Player Profile: Max Wright
- Height: 6'4
- Weight: 276
There were some questions about his game following a knee injury early in the 2015 season, but talent-wise there is little question about Wright's value as a prospect. His freshman highlight tape was very impressive and before going down with an injury his sophomore season he flashed the ability that showed why he's national level target on the defensive front. Wright assembled a great comeback year as a junior and re-established himself as one of the top overall prospects in Texas for 2018. He is big and agile, has really good hips, and he's quick enough to make plays behind the line of scrimmage, while also being strong enough to hold up and defend against the run game. Have any type of doubts of what type of athlete Wright is? Then check out the highlights of him running with the football. Wright's running back days may soon be over, but his football days are not. He's an elite defensive end prospect who will likely fit multiple schemes. - Greg Powers and Gabe Brooks
