"I'm anxious," said Wright. "I sat out a whole year. I learned a lot and I guess I matured during that time. As soon as we get the pads on though I feel sorry for the first guy who has to block me because I'm going to be ready to hit.
I went up to campus a few weeks ago and was measured at 6-7, 330. The coaches said they want me at 320. Coach Carlisle wants me to focus on getting in running shape and so I've been running 3-4 times per week lately. He says I have natural strength so they aren't worried about me lifting weights but last year the running was a big adjustment for me. Man, what they do is totally different. We'd be finished doing some running and I'd be like, what, that was just warm-ups? I wasn't used to that.
Right now I'll most likely be at defensive tackle behind Shaun Cody because the only other person they really have there right now is LaJuan Ramsey."
