Hands: Kendall Wright has reliable hands and is prone to few drops. If they come they usually look to be concentration issues over the middle. He won’t drop many. His ability to track the football is uncanny and makes him so special. He brings in tough over the shoulder throws with a regularity. Despite being 5’10, he is a tenacious catcher that appears to want it more than defenders.
Route Running: Wright runs crisp routes as he can get in and out of his breaks faster than most. He has experience in the slot and outside and looks equally effective at either. Hands down the top vertical route runner in this draft. Shows the savvy to stem back to the sidelines on the deep fade and vertical routes prior to the catch to shield defenders.
After the Catch: Wright is extremely dangerous with the ball in his hands. Despite not having great size he possesses the power to break tackles in the open field as well run right by defenders. He’s an explosive and sudden runner that gets to top speed very quickly. If not for his prowess in the vertical game he could make a living running underneath coverage and turning up field for extra yards. Read the rest of this entry » «Kendall Wright Scouting Report»
