Mike Wright led the Patriots in sacks in 2010 with 5.5 of them. And that was despite missing the final six games of the regular season. Wright suffered a concussion against the Colts on November 21. It was bad enough to send him unsteadily off the field that day. It was bad enough to make it difficult for him to watch television for the next few weeks. But Wright is getting right. According to Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald, a source close to the players says Wright made significant progress in overcoming the post-concussion trauma about a month ago. The source added, "He'll be completely ready to go for next year."As we approach the 2011 draft, it's important to know the status of Wright as the Patriots make their plans. And, as we spend our time poring over the guys at the top of the draft with the high grades and paragraphs of analysis after their names, it's also worth noting where Wright came from. Undrafted out of Cincinnati in 2005.
