Strengths: Wright is an explosive WR at all levels of the field- Consistently separates from defender and gets good positioning on DB- Elite ball tracking skills, finds the ball while in air and makes plays on it- Almost always wins the 1 on 1 battles- Accelerates quickly and smoothly, gets to top speed within the first ten yards- Unlike other WRs Wright is a threat at each level, can catch balls behind the LOS and turn it into a big gain, can run clean routes in 10-20 yard range, and can run the deep routes and win- Excellent after the catch, routinely runs away from defenders- Crisp, fluid and natural route runner, comes out of his breaks clean with good burst- Stop and go ability will allow him to run double moves at the next level. Has the best footwork of any receiver in the draft, knows where he is one the field and can get his feet in bounds- Body control is remarkable, makes everything look easy- Wright is the type of WR that a QB can throw the ball and let Wright go get it, very tough to over throw- Very Solid to Elite hands, watches the ball in and doesn’t trap it- Best suited to play outside the numbers due to his ability to take the top off the defense, however Wright will be a nightmare in the slot due to quickness and ability to make quick cuts- Wright understands how to read coverages and often exploits soft spot in zone

Weaknesses: Smaller frame, Hasn’t been asked to run a full route tree- will take time to learn a more complex playbook- From film it seems Wright tends to drift away from defenders especially toward the sideline while the ball is in the air- Will need to get better at the LOS against the more physical CB in the NFL- Like most WRs blocking needs work
