Overview

Wright finished his distinguished career earning second-team All-Mountain West honors while playing through pain most of the season. A factor in coverage since his freshman season, he had 10 career interceptions and 25 pass breakups for the Lobos. Despite that production, Wright's durability is a major concern for scouts because of his slight frame and postseason surgeries on both shoulders.

Analysis

Strengths

Positives: Nice length to play the ball on the outside. ... Excellent hands for the interception, whether deep in coverage or on tip drills. ... Has the vision to get yards after the pick. ... Keeps his eyes on the quarterback, jumping routes aggressively. ... Fast and low in his backpedal. ... Changes direction quickly, able to flip his hips and run with receivers down the sideline. ... Quick to come up in run support, eat up a block on a receiver screen, or put a shoulder into his man immediately after the catch. ... Played through injuries. Negatives: Small with a very lanky build. ... Doesn't show great strength to get off blocks, fight for the ball in the air, jam at the line or tackle in the open field. ... Cut tackler who will whiff on occasion. ... Lacks top-end speed to hang with NFL receivers over distance. ... Rounds off when adjusting to out routes. ... Gets turned around and bites hard on double moves due to his aggressive style and does not have good recovery speed. ... Takes on gunners but lacks the strength to hold them up. ... Medical check needed on his injured shoulders.
