Kendall Wright is the Real Deal
First round draft pick Kendall Wright showed he might be everything he was billed and then some today. Catching passes fluidly and displaying impressive awareness and body control, Wright showed why the Titans drafted him in the first round.
Wright played his college ball at Baylor where he excelled at both football and basketball. Officially listed at 5' 10" and 195, he is a different receiver than Damien Williams (6' 1" and 199) and Kenny Britt (6' 3" and 215). Drafted 20th overall by the Titans in 2012, Wright was initially a hold out from camp but signed on July 31, 2012. He struggled early on, but Wright looks poised to be a difference maker on offense.
