Entering the 2012 NFL Draft, wide receiver wasn’t on the list of the top three needs for the Tennessee Titans.
But that didn’t stop the team from making a surprise selection again this April and taking the star receiver out of Baylor.
Kendall Wright saw steady growth in his four-year college career at Baylor.
“When he gets the ball in his hands, he’s special,” Mike Mayock stated in NFL Network’s live broadcast after the team made its surprise selection. Mayock added that he “also has potential as a return specialist.”
In his senior season, Wright chalked up 108 catches for 1,663 yards and 14 touchdowns. He became a weapon of mass destruction on the outside, in the slot and might have been just as lethal on special teams.
“[He's] hard to cover, hard to tackle—throw him a bubble screen or reverse—you name it—find a way to get the ball in his hands and he scores points,” Steve Mariucci added about the 5-11, 190-pound playmaker.
