Height: 5’10″
Weight: 182
Grade: 7.1 H (Grading Scale):

Film Room Notes: vs Kansas State, vs LSU

Hands: 8 1/2″ Arms: 31 1/2″

40: 4.41 Bench: 11 reps Vert: 38″ Broad: 10′ 3-Cone: 6.93

Strengths: Wright plays primarily out of the slot, but is not the traditional slot WR as he can stretch the field and get over top of the defense – Excellent burst off the LOS, looks to have great 10 yard splits – Can eat up the cushion easily and run right by most DBs – Wright exhibits some of the best footwork of any WR – Precise route runner, who really accelerates in and out of his break s- Much more polished than a lot of route runners in the draft, in that he doesn’t give away which route he is running, sets up CBs nicely – Runs the out-breaking routes exceptionally well, works the sideline and knows how to keep his feet in bounds – Wright has elite body control both while running routes and while going up to catch the ball – Never seems out of control and has a smoothness to his game – Consistently creates separation whether it is underneath or over the top – Should be a very productive underneath WR in NFL due to his quickness and ability to make quick and precise cuts – Has played in a pro style passing system, with a full route tree and option routes based on coverages – Fluid receiving the ball, makes catch and gets up field in one motion – Excels at getting YAC and is very good in space.

Weaknesses: Wright is under 5’10″ tall – He struggles against press coverage and needs to find a way to handle physical CBs – Has dropped some balls, which he traps on his chest, especially when running deep routes – Has a tendency to jump and catch the ball when it’s not necessary – I would like to see him work his way back to the QB more.
