Overview

Wright had been a solid complimentary player in Baylor's high-octane offense who has turned into much more in his senior year. As Robert Griffin III's go-to option at receiver, Wright working himself wide open for a long touchdown seemed to be a common sight for Big 12 opponents this season. Wright is undersized but has the speed to take the top off of NFL defenses. His athletic ability is his greatest strength, and he uses strong, polished technique to make up for his size deficiencies on the field. He has the wiggle and subsequent burst to make a move on a defender and get up field. His ball skills are on par with his overall skills as a wideout, and he uses his footwork to run strong routes for the collegiate level. He is a smart, competitive player who runs each route to win, and usually does. He will have to improve his blocking and overall strength at the next level, but Wright has the potential to be a first day pick and make an instant impact.

Analysis

Strengths

Wright knows how to use his athletic ability to his advantage and is a dynamic player. Despite his size, he is an effective and even lethal threat at the line of scrimmage, as he can get a quick step on a corner and be open from the get-off. His quickness off the line of scrimmage makes up for his size, where he is able to get a free release and get open once in his route. He is capable of being a serious deep threat, yet also has the quickness and ball skills to be effective in the short-to-intermediate game. As a route runner, Wright has shown an understanding of how to lean on a defender to gain separation and stem his routes to set-up his quick step to separate. Wright understands the strong suits of his game and plays to them. With the ball in his hands he can create plays for himself and use vision and body control to weave up field and bounce off would-be tacklers. Most importantly, he has the uncanny ability to separate from defenders and get open across the field, a dynamic that's highly sought after at the next level.

Weaknesses

Wright hasn't shown the ability to block or be a factor in the run game while at Baylor. If the ball is not coming his way, he can be seen not displaying full effort. He's the type of receiver who needs to be involved in the game to be a factor at all. Showing the ability to run NFL routes will help this prospect's status.
