Looks like Wright could go pretty early in the supplemental draft...
From NFL.com
Quote:
The NFL isn't quite through with drafts this year. The supplemental one will be held July 14, and USC Trojans defensive tackle Manuel Wright is drawing heavy interest.
Wright was scheduled to visit the Eagles today, the Bengals on June 18 and the Dolphins on June 24. Wright also is planning to work out July 8 at USC for any interested team.
A 6-foot-6, 310-pound defensive tackle who runs the 40-yard dash in the 4.8s, Wright now figures to go as high as the second round of the supplemental draft. Any team that picks him will lose a corresponding selection in the 2006 NFL Draft. One person familiar with Wright said that, had he remained at USC and had another big season, he could have been a first-round pick next April.

Run from his responsibilities, how is that? There is no obligation to go to college. Right now NFL teams want him. You would have him spend next year not playing then hope to come back as a starter and show all his potential?--that is two years of his life and off his NFL career. I don't see where it is irresponsible or some character flaw for him to chose the NFL in his current circumstances.
