Baylor senior wide receiver Kendall Wright will head to the NFL Draft as a potential first round pick.
Senior wide receiver Kendall Wright will leave Baylor after his final season with the Bears to get ready for the 2012 NFL Draft. The receiver is coming off a fantastic season, hauling in passes from Heisman winning quarterback Robert Griffin III. Wright is known as a speedster, often getting deep down the football field. In his senior season, Wright caught 108 passes for 1,663 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns. Wright's numbers at Baylor increased each season he was with the Bears after being a part-time receiver his freshman year.
Wright is expected to rise in draft rankings when it gets down to running the 40-yard dash and agility drills at the NFL Combine, where he can show off his blazing speed and quickness. Wright is a bit of a smaller receiver however, being listed at only 5-foot-10 and 190 pounds, so his official measurements will be a bit of a concern for some teams. Wright as it stands is expected to be a late first round pick.
