While all the eyeballs at the Baylor pro day today will gravitate toward Robert Griffin III, NFL scouts will be taking a much more focused look at his go to wide receiver.
Kendall Wright is coming off a Combine workout in which he put up a disappointing 4.61 40-time. The draftniks say Wright plays faster than he times, but there’s no doubt scouts would feel a lot better if Wright put up a better 40 time today. It also couldn’t hurt to see him put up some more reps on the bench after managing just 11. He’s likely to stand on his vertical leap and broad jump numbers of 38 inches and 10 feet, as they help convince talent evaluators of his explosiveness.
“This is a big day for Kendall Wright, a potential first-round wide receiver who ran poorly at the Combine,” said NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock. “He needs to run a better 40 and needs to catch the ball from Robert Griffin, run routes, run verticals, and get in and out of breaks. It’s also a big day for offensive lineman Philip Blake and tailback Terrance Ganaway.”
Blake is one of the top centers in the draft class. Ganaway is considered a 4th or 5th round RB prospect.
