He did impress with his ability to play the edge and handle tight ends at the line, and intercepted a pass during Thursday's team work to make up for a drop earlier in the week.

WR Jarius Wright (Arkansas), 5-9/176
Several small-but-quick receivers from the Shrine Game have landed in the top 100 the past few years: Steve Smith (Utah/Carolina, not USC/Giants-Eagles), Deion Branch, Dexter Jackson, Deon Butler and Emmanuel Sanders. Wright's ability to eat up cushion was on full display on the St. Petersburg High School field, which portends a nice 40-yard dash time in upcoming workouts. His production in multiple facets of the Arkansas passing game, along with untapped potential as a receiver, could make him the next receiver on that top-100 list.
These two sound like interesting prospects.

Handling TEs at the line will be nice when we have to beat the Patriots in the playoffs next year.
