Kendall Wright scouting report

Kendall Wright WR Baylor #1
Ht: 5’10”

Wt: 190

 
Strengths:
Elite speed; can consistently stretch the field. A playmaker with the ball in his hands; quick and shifty; elusive in the open field. Does a nice job adjusting to poorly thrown balls. Experienced and efficient running a variety of routes; can stretch the field with his pure speed, but also uses quickness to get open on other shorter routes. Tough for his size; not afraid to go across the middle. Reliable hands and good technique; catches the ball away from his body and then brings it in. Good fundamentals as a runner; secures the ball. Elite all-around athlete; played basketball at Baylor as a freshman.
Weaknesses:
Slightly undersized; will struggle against more physical cornerbacks if jammed at the line of scrimmage. Played in a spread offense at Baylor which allowed him to frequently get open in space; rarely forced to make plays in traffic. Limited experience on special teams, where some teams may want to use him.
Comments:
Wright has the potential to be a game-changer on offense, the only question is his size. Fortunately for Wright, he’s entering the league at the right time. The NFL is continuing to become a more passing-friendly league, and undersized receivers such as Antonio Brown, Mike Wallace and DeSean Jackson are among the most feared receivers in the league. Wright has all the tools necessary to be in that class of receivers if he lands in the right system.
