Has the body control/balance to do the same on the outside vs. off coverage. Eats up the cushion quickly, drops his pad level well on a dime when asked to run the deep out and can separate or even turn the play up the field on a double move.
However, struggles to get off press coverage initially off the line. Isn't real long/physical, can be re-routed initially and slowed into his route.
Exhibits the ability to adjust and pluck throws off his frame, but looks content to simply trap passes against his chest when throw on target. Tracks the ball well vertically and can behind defenders off the line, but isn't a guy who's going to win in jump ball situations.
A tough kid though, who will hold onto the football in coverage, take a lick and still come down with the catch.
Displays good short area quickness with the ball in his hands and has the initial burst/speed to outpace angles in space. Has some real savvy about his game underneath, recognizes coverage's well, sits down in soft spots underneath and works his angles well toward the quarterback.
Impression: A coordinated athlete who is sharp as a route runner, tough over the middle and knows how to get open vs. man and zone. Will get re-routed vs. press at times and looks more like an inside player at the next level, but has the skill set to make a roster and carve out a big niche early."
Weaknesses: Wright’s small frame is not conducive for getting off the line well. It shows on tape as he struggles to get off the jam and has to re-route on outside release. Concerns with the many catches that he traps against his chest. He doesn’t drop many but I would like to see him catch with his hands more.
Bottom Line: Wright is a guy that could carve a niche quickly in the NFL as a inside receiver. His football IQ is through the roof and shows impressive toughness on the underneath stuff. His speed could create matchup nightmares in the slot. I don’t see him developing into anything more than a slot guy in the NFL.
Draft Projection: Wright should come off the board in the 3rd round but could easily find a spot in the 2nd for a team in need of a dynamic slot receiver."
Flashes quick hands to snare throws away from his body, can leap and plays tough for his size.
Has a wiry build with short arms and small hands — is susceptible to press and can be outmuscled by defensive backs.
Could be a mismatch weapon in the right passing system and has traits to be tried as a returner."
Not all that big or physical and struggles to beat jam at line of scrimmage as well as get separation from tight press coverage downfield;
However, is very fast with reported 4.3 speed; also a very good route-runner with excellent balance and body control who explodes out of cuts; understands the offense and can find the soft spots in coverage;
Is shifty and elusive after the catch; has adequate hands, but lets too many balls get into his pads."
