    DRAFT ANALYSIS:
    Mayock's take: "For people who think he's just a high-level outside guy, I think he's special with the ball in his hands. ... He's built like a running back, a little thicker than wide receivers typically are. He's also got potential as a return specialist."

    5'10"
    HEIGHT
    30 1/2"
    ARM LENGTH
    196LBS.
    WEIGHT
    8 5/8"
    HANDS
    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 upfield. His ball skills are on par with his overall skills as a wideout, and he uses his footwork to run strong routes. 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.

    Now, now GoT. Short, fat and slow don't seem to be the verdict of Mayock. He seems more to be a quicker Hines Ward to me. If he is even close its a good pick.

    Just image britt, Britt, Wright, and Cook in a 3 WR set. Then let CJ go in Pre snap motive as a 4th WR, or just have him run a wheel route. We have the makes to be dangerous on offense. I wanna see a 8 in a box on us this year.

    yeah Titans have not seen 8 in the box since 2009 so not sure why they will be seeing 8itB in 2012 and well I just hope Wright dont turn out like those other SWC losers

    GoT is just letting his hatred(as warranted as it is) of Amano blind him right now. He'll come around.

    GoT you know this is totally false, CJ was still getting stacked all last season by 7-8 in the box. Let it go.

    I choose not to even engage with nonsense. We always saw 8 man fronts.

    CJ was totally being contained by base fronts all of 2011

    Base 4-3 until the D would slide up during Pre snap.

    GoT, you gotta know that you go WAY overboard on the CJ criticism. You're either getting your troll on with that stuff, or perhaps CJ spent some time with your girlfriend in a Bentley or something.
