comparinf 40 times isnt really fair he had bad track form when running the 40 however he is the fastest player in college football when he plays in pads and thats all that matters
i agree having RG3 helped wright a lot but
wright caught 50 % of RG3 throws
and had 40 % RG3 passing yards
wright was a huge part of that poffense
and wright is a burner a huge one he is impossible to guard in one on one situations (like cruz greg hennings steve smith)
true we already have 2 smaller WR but neither are as quick or as fast as wright is
Its is true that the 40 at the combine is more of a track meet that you train for, but that Baylor offense was PROLIFIC! You could not double team Wright while Broyles was facing double teams for 3 straight years. Teams facing Baylor had to keep a spy on RG3, leaving 1 on 1 situations on the outside and lots of open field up top. There were a ton of receiving options on that team.
Wright = 78 REC, 952 YDS, 7 TD, 12.2 AVG
Gordon = 42 REC, 714 YDS, 7 TD, 17.0 AVG
WIlliams had another 42 REC, Reese had 45 REC, Sampson had 42 REC and Taylor had a 13.5 AVG.
2011 ( Wrights breakout year )
Wright = 108 REC, 1663 YDS, 14 TD, 15.4 AVG
Williams = 59 REC, 957 YDS, 11 TD, 16.2 AVG
Reese = 51 REC, 877 YDS, 7 TD, 17.2 AVG
Sampson had another 42 REC that year.
Baylor spread O in that run and shoot conference inflated Wright's numbers big time. He RARELY faced press coverage and double teams. How could the teams? If they did they would get destroyed on the other side of the field.
Hey Im not saying Wright isn't talented, he is. If the 9ers picked him at 30 over the other WR's, they see something special in the kid. Harbaalke OBVIOUSLY both know infinitely more about football than I do, but Im just not in love with him. Would rather have...in order
at 30. How about you???
