Summary:

Watching Wright play is a pleasure.  He does everything well.  He run precise routes and knows how to use his speed while running them.  His hands are always at the ready position.  He is tough over the middle.  Though he doesn’t get many long plays I think it’s the system and not his lack of speed because he is a burner.  Being able to be effective in short passes will allow him to become a complete WR.  I think he is one of the under rated WR’s in this draft.  Playing with Robert Griffin helps but this kid is the real deal.  Teams that have a strong #1 and are looking to pair him with them should take him in Round 2.  Teams such as Dolphins, Bills, Chargers, Buccs, Saints, and Texans.
