Draft Scout Gabe Wright News
05/07/15 - DT Gabe Wright, selected by the Lions in the fourth round of the draft (113th overall), agreed to terms on a four-year contract Thursday (May 7).
05/04/15 - A closer look at the Lions' seven picks: Round 4/113 -- Gabe Wright, DT, 6 -3, 300, Auburn...With no pick in the fourth round after trading it to Baltimore in the Haloti Ngata deal, the Lions gave up a 2016 third-round pick to Philadelphia to move into the fourth round and take Wright, whom they considered in the third round. He's a quick, penetrating pass rusher who fits the height and weight measurables the Lions look for on the interior and should be a rotational player immediately. - The Sports Xchange
01/22/15 - 2015 Senior Bowl, Wednesday: Auburn's Gabe Wright was the most disruptive of the South's defensive tackles. A shade under 6-3, and 300 pounds, Wright possesses the prototypical frame and quickness off the ball for 4-3 teams looking for a penetrating three-technique defensive tackle. Wright explodes off the ball and has active, aggressive hands. At times, he's too aggressive, getting his hands near the face of would-be blockers, but his energy and combative style made him a tough matchup for all of the South's offensive linemen. Matchups between Wright and Mason made for some of the more entertaining one-on-one battles of the day. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
08/13/14 - Auburn's top NFL Draft-eligible prospects to watch in 2014: 4. DT Gabe Wright, Senior...Ford's speed off the edge played a critical role in Auburn's pass rush a year ago but Wright's burst and agility as an interior threat was also key. Wright started a career-high 11 games for the Tigers last season (35 tackles, including 8.5 for loss) and has been part of Auburn's rotation along the defensive line since stepping onto the field as a true freshman. Wright reportedly played at 309 pounds a season ago but is now in the 285-290 range as Auburn is hoping to feature him not only in the middle but at defensive end in 2014 as part of their "Rhino" package.
Wright has terrific initial quickness, which he can use to penetrate gaps and wreak havoc in the backfield. At times he is so consumed with rushing upfield that he loses sight of the ball and it is hoped that with the loss of weight, he'll be better suited to changing directions and making more plays in pursuit. He has very active hands to swim past would-be blockers and impair the vision of the quarterback. So-called "undersized" defensive tackles Aaron Donald and Dominique Easley were first round picks a year ago. A breakout senior campaign from Wright could have his stock skyrocketing, as well. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
