Draft Analysis:

Bucky Brooks' take: Wright is a slippery slot receiver with quickness and burst. He is adept at separating from defenders out of breaks, and adds some juice to the Vikings' passing game.

  • 5'10" Height
  • 31 1/2" Arm Length
  • 182LBS. Weight
  • 8 1/2" Hands

Overview

Wright has been a consistent starter for Arkansas since his freshman year. He is undersized but has legitimate 4.4 speed in the 40-yard dash, which he uses well in all aspects of his game. He wasn't used much as a returner, but he is an option for NFL teams there based off his ball handling, quickness and long speed. He has fourth-round value working out of the slot at the next level.

Analysis

Strengths

Wright is a very quick player who understands how to work out of the slot and sit down in the hole of a zone defense. He is tough in traffic and a deep threat who runs good routes. He understands the angling aspect of route running and how to create separation. He has quick hands to snag the ball in short throws and the ability to reel it in deep. He could add value at the return positions, although he hasn't displayed much on special teams in college.

Weaknesses

Wright is undersized, and although he gives great effort in the run game, he struggles to sustain his blocks. He utilizes quick feet off the line but can get jammed up by bigger corners.
