Arizona Wildcats linebacker Scooby Wright III will forgo his senior season and declare for the 2016 NFL Draft, the junior announced Saturday after UA won the 2015 Gildan New Mexico Bowl.

A 2014 consensus All-American, Wright missed most of the 2015 season due to injury but returned Saturday to win New Mexico Bowl MVP honors.

Wright became choked up during his post-game interview with ESPN.

One Web site projects Wright as a second- or third-round NFL draft pick.
