Featured Prospects

Selected by: San Diego Chargers
Round: 3
Pick (Overall): 25 (89)

Pick Analysis: Wright was regarded as one of the sleepers at the position prior to suffering an injury at his pro day. However, the Chargers are banking that he fully returns to form and becomes a solid player on the island. His combination of speed and athleticism makes him a worthwhile gamble at this point of the draft.

Overview

Wright was ruled academically ineligible for the 2009 season, but he has worked hard to salvage his career and has the potential to be drafted in April. He plays very aggressively and likes to hit in run support despite being slightly undersized. He is fast with good agility to stick in man coverage and shows good recognition skills to make plays in zone. His off the field issues, coupled with a serious neck injury in 2008, may scare off a few teams, but Wright is a talented corner and has a chance to be a mid-to-late round draft pick.


Strengths

Wright plays bigger than his listed size and has good speed. Possesses quick feet and the hip fluidity to transition smoothly and mirror in man coverage. Shows very good instincts to anticipate routes in zone and closes quickly when the ball is in the air. Willing tackler in run support and looks to deliver big shots.

Weaknesses

Does not have the deep speed to close the gap once he beat on go routes. Over aggressive at times and is susceptible to double moves. Struggles to break down ball carriers in space and does not always wrap effectively. There are questions about his maturity and durability.

Grade

6.6
