Kendall Wright bandwagon

Heres to hoping this guy falls.

The only WR's that i have first round grades on are Blackmon Wright and Floyd. If wright or floyd fell to us because of hill leap frogging them i would be estatic.

Then take a guy like streeter or jones in the third, and send a flyer on akpla on the last day of the draft.

If Blackmon, Wright, or floyd are all gone than i would take BPA.

all the other deep threat WR (adams jatrius wright hilton in draft and desean jackson etc all weight 170-180 pounds

190 for his size is good bulk

I'd still put it below average.

Mike Wallace is 200, Jennings is 200, Cruz is 205.

He's still got to put on about 10 pounds.
i just checked

wright weighed 196 at combine greg jennings is 198 and
wallace weights 200 but is 1 inch more


his weight isnt an issue
Seems to have short arms too. Not too much on his bandwagon

30.5 arm length for 5'10" is more then adequate. In an NFL weight room he'll put at least 5 pounds on.

Might be why he ran such a poor number. He was listed at 188 going into it. Tried to bulk a little too quickly.

he ran poorly because he isnt a track star he didnt have proper technicquw

if you watch him ran during position drills he was blazing fast
^^This. Like baalke said, some guys will run blazing 40's but you wont see it on the field, put on the tape, it wont be there.. The opposite is true for some players, some just arent track stars, but put on tha tape and watch them in action and you see they have all the speed they need.

I stopped paying attention to 40 times after Jason Hill ran a 4.32 years ago...

He was a track star in high school.

I've read mixed reviews about his position drills too.

Every athlete is a track star in high school, whats your point?

He doesn't like Kendall Wright early on

I have my doubts. He did have an ankle injury so that does come into play, but his gut is pretty noticeable as well and he just didn't look as advertised.
I bet he runs in the 4.4's at his pro day.
This 40 time is not that huge of a surprise. The guy is FAST, however, the speed is in his 2nd, not his 1st gear. He's not that fast getting off the line, and I have not been all that impressed with his speed in the first 10 or 15 yards, however, he hits a 2nd gear and is flying. A defender can go stride for stride with him for a while, and then he turns on the jets and is gone. He's going to make his money going deep, not running intermediate routes. My problem isn't the 40, it's his hand size. His hands are REALLY small, and that may explain why I've never seen an overly natural catcher. Don't get me wrong, he catches the ball well, but not as well as I would like from a guy that will make a living catching difficult deep passes. I like Wright, but question spending a 1st round pick on him. For my money, I would trade down and target Brian Quick later in the draft, while loading up on a few more mid-late round receivers.
