KJ Wright seems to barely get recognition. Dude is a beast.

Loved Wright's game since he first step foot on the field. I think we have another young talent in Malcolm Smith once he gets to playing more

KJ Wright is crazy underrated, you have to appreciate what he does on the field.

Great open field tackler and one of my favorite LBs. I'll be interested to see how his role evolves this year. It sounds like the coaches are working on ways to keep him on the field.

Even his rookie year was super impressive. This guy does so much good for the defense. The pain of being a OLB in a 4-3 scheme though is not getting enough credit where its due. Criminally underrated. But in a sea of all-star talent on the defense, them the breaks.

EDIT: Im drunk enough (and the high heat here near death valley) to decide to change my avatar to one of the most underrated players on the team. This video made me happy, and KJ needs some reppin.

KJ has always been a play maker, from his rookie year when he setup Red Bryant's TD interception against the Bears and Hawthorne's interception against the Ravens. The team definitely made the right move getting him on the field in place of A Curry. Fills a significant role on defense but a position that may not be a high priority for re-signing when his rookie contract expires.

I like the way he plays the game.

With the market what it is for linebackers not named Willis, Lewis, and Urlacher we should be able to keep him.

Man everybody in the gameday chat knows the love I have for the spidermonkey. Have seen it since he was a rookie straight beast. God I hope he is a hawk forever.

I'm not sure why Bobby Wagner gets all the credit. Wagner is a very good young player, but KJ Wright is the best Seahawk LB and one of the best in the league - he should be in the pro bowl and in the Top 100 players after this season.

I'm happy that Dan Quinn sees how good KJ is and is publicly praising him.

Wright is favorite player on the Seahawks defense after Brandon Mebane. Clearly underrated and capable of becoming so much better.

Wright has that long frame that makes him stand out when standing next to others. He has got to be one of the biggest olb's in the league. We also have a huge saftey in KAm, our outside CB's are giants, and we have the heaviest 4-3 DE in Red. This is a defense full is unique players and KJ is a good one. The comment that he's better than Wagner is questionable but I love his game. Both are great LB's and by the end of next year might be on par with the Bowman Willis combo.

I'd like to see Wright be used more as a roaming Linebacker, but we need some guys to step up, so we can use him in that capacity. It seems like he's kind of stuck strongside, unless a linebacker or two steps up and gives us the ability to move him around. The only reason Wagner got more props last year than Wright is because he played the Middle and he had better stats.

I guess the pundits completely brainfart the fact that Wright was helping Wagner be in the right place and make the right calls because he played Middle the year before, and they just seem to completely ignore the fact that Wright was consistently making big plays last year, albeit in coverage or getting in the backfield. I'm just hoping that Smith, Irvin, Toomer or Lotulelei will pop off and give us a versatile linebacking corp. to work with.

On paper... Our defense looks real good this year.

He was so good last preseason, I thought he was on the verge of superstardom. I'm not sure what happened after that, I thought his 2012 season was alright, but mixed. I don't like how he's moving to WILL, it's like the Seahawks equivalent of putting Raul in the outfield to keep him in the lineup. But whatever. He's a good player who has flashed dominance. I'm curious to see how he does this year.

Nice video, too.

Sometimes the ridiculous "Name Game" that is stardom in modern sports media helps, for sure.

Solid player, but hasn't yet taken that next step we are hoping for. There is one way to tell when a 4-3 OLB is a stud--when there is a play going on and some guy comes out of nowhere and completely blows up a play, and you say "whoa! Who the heck was that!?" For as solid as he has been, he hasn't gotten there yet.

"Football doesn't build character, it reveals it." Nice statement and fits KJ perfectly.

He made some big tackles against Falcons, too.

I like that play where he comes on a blitz and sacks Kaepernick. He tried to pull a Russell Wilson and spin out of it to the outside, but he just isn't as good!!!

That doesn't exclude others from breaking out. I'm an equal opportunity optimist, and no, it is not wrong to include the whole roster... especially if we keep Fells 8-)

He's a more freakish, durable and humble version of Anthony Simmons. Cake + icing. The real deal.

I'm a big believer that the front four have a huge impact on the LB's and part of the reason Wright and Wagner haven't broke out is because we haven't yet had the right combination of front four so they are constantly picking up the slack rather than making highlight reels. Look at Willis and Bowman last year when Justin Smith was injured. They disappeared just like Aldon Smith did. Hopefully Quinn can get the winning combination set at the front four and we will be able to see what Wagner and Wright are really capable of.
