Can Scooby Wright make a big impact on Cleveland Browns?


Philip Wright III, also known as “Scooby,” has been selected by the Cleveland Browns in the seventh round of the NFL Draft this 2016. Even though Scooby was the last pick, it does not necessarily mean that he is not a strong player. If it weren’t for his injury in 2015, he could have been chosen in the first round.

The 6-foot-1, 246-pound linebacker received numerous accolades in his sophomore year in 2014. He became Arizona’s sixth unanimous All-America, Pac-12 named him as the Player of the Year, and he claimed more awards such as the Bronko Nagurski Trophy, the Rotary Lombardi Award, and the Chuck Bednarik Award. During his three-year college career, he has made 269 tackles, 42 tackles for loss, and 16.5 sacks. He tied a school record in 2014 with 29 tackles for loss. However, injuries caused him to stop playing in 2015. If Scooby fully recovers and remains healthy, he can offer the Browns with the defense that the franchise needs. He could have a place in Cleveland’s defensive front this year. And having more talented players this year, Cleveland should have a good year ahead of them.
