On Friday the general manager of the Chicago Bears Jerry Angelo was all praise for the pick as he said that though Major Wright has not been a big interceptor in his college, he had in his three years tenure in Florida acted as a starter adding at the same time that the management knows the type of defense that is at work in Florida. He said that being a Florida player itself speaks a lot about the quality of the player and that Major Wright was a special athlete like all other Florida athletes.
