Description

Overview Lanky, angular cornerback with good length but bad speed. Wright possesses above-average instincts and shows some ability to squat, burst and smother shorter routes from off coverage, but he will need help over the top because his recovery speed is lacking. He doesn't have the instant acceleration or agility to stay connected to NFL route runners, which will limit his scheme fits. His length and play traits could make him a target for Cover 3 defenses who care less about long speed and more about ball skills. Strengths Learned lessons from 2019 and improved in 2020. Instinctive with plus route recognition. Sits down and squeezes routes underneath. Fast feet help him pounce on top of throws. Tracks and attacks the 50-50 ball. Long and athletic in the air. High points the jump ball like a wideout. Weaknesses Very thin frame with skinny hips and legs. Transitions from press coverage lack smooth, quick acceleration. #NFL Draft 2021
