2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Kendall Wright, WR, Baylor

The Baylor Bears' impressive 2011 season isn't only spearheaded by quarterback Robert Griffin III, wide receiver Kendall Wright could have a bright future ahead of him in the NFL. An undersized talent with legit speed and burst with a great set of hands, Wright has the athleticism to be a starter or slot wideout. He needs to continue working on the small details of his game, but has a great foundation to build upon.

As a route runner, Wright needs to be more crisp and precise in and out of his breaks. When the ball comes his way, he finds it quickly and can snatch it out of the air without relying on securing it against his body. Wright can get separation with his speed or create space down the field. Because of his size, he'll need to work on his ability to get off the line against press coverage, but that's not to say he doesn't like contact. In the open field, he'll occasionally take on defenders head-on when the opportunity presents itself.

At the next level (as long as he continues to progress as a route runner), Wright has some serious potential for teams that aren't afraid to utilize shorter receivers down the field. His short area burst can cause a ton of problems for teams that run zone.

I like him going to houston because he doesnt fit what cleveland needs. Cleveland needs a big body guy. wright is not that.
