its a good thing they snagged this guy before we gave him a shot..


"The Miami Dolphins may have landed the biggest steal in the draft when they selected University of Texas defensive tackle Rodrique Wright, considered a first-round candidate at the outset of the 2005 season and certainly a first-day pick in most analyses leading up to the lottery, in the seventh round on Sunday evening.

Unfortunately, Miami might have to wait until 2007 to reap the benefits of its heist.

Tests before the draft revealed that Wright, the 226th player chosen over the weekend and the last of the 23 defensive tackles selected to go off the board, has a torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder. The Dolphins will conduct a follow-up MRI exam later this week and may opt to have Wright undergo surgery to repair the condition.

If Wright does have surgery, there is a chance he could miss the entire 2006 season and, at best, wouldn't be available until the second half of his rookie campaign........"
