Default Kendall Wright's Pro day

Ran 4.46 & 4.41
The 4.46-second performance should go a long way in establishing Wright as a late first-round pick with a likely destination in Cleveland at pick No. 22 in the draft.

Wright earned All-American honors in 2011 with 108 catches, 1,663 yards and 14 touchdowns, finishing his career as the most prolific wide receiver in Baylor history.

Yep. Kid is a play maker.

Hand timed at the Combine people had him at 4.47. Don't know how they managed to screw that pooch, but NFL needs to fix it. Hurts players.

Not sure what smith being a ten year vet has to do with him being a very talented small receiver. My point is that I'd rather have steve smith that mike Williams. An I'd rather have Calvin Johnson over both.

I like height too...as long as it comes with talent. But I'm not going to pass up a guy I think is extremely talented just to take a guy that is taller but less talented.

Either the texans think wright is talented enough to take or they met with him to throw everyone off. I'm more inclined to think they have actual interest in him.

Smith has got a case of the Enrons, so I fully expect us to pass on this ten year talent.

My point is that Steve Smith isn't good because he is small. He is good because he has been around the block and knows how to play the game. We obviously think of Wright differently. Yes he is talented, but I think Wright should be selected high second round. An example would be DeSean Jackson who I think was better coming out of college and went high two.

He was electronically timed at 4.6 because his hand moved first and they use the electronic time as the "official" time.

We all knew he was fast. You don't need a forty-yard dash to prove it. Just watch the film.

5'10 1/4 with 39 vertical leap. He historically has gone up against bigger defenders and brought the ball down in traffic. If one watched his games, it was not all RG3. Wright is a baller and so is Jordan White.

And electronically timed at 4.6 because that method always records a slower time.

Default Re: Kendall Wright's Pro day

Electronically times are slower, but they should be more accurate. I'm surprised they don't use a set up similar to track and field. Where the timer starts off a gun and and an electronic beam stops the timer.

Wright's slower combine time was due to a poor start, he just didn't get off the line well. The 40 is too short of a race to overcome a bad start.

So what if we use the 4th we got from Philly and somehow use that to trade spots with Cleveland at #22 if Wright is there?

Huh???

Who said a guy is good because they are small?

My point is that him being small doesn't keep him from being good...and in a lot of cases better than some of his bigger counterparts...

Steve Smith has been good for a while. He didn't just become good with experience. Not even sure what you are saying here.

DeSean Jackson has the talent to be a difference maker on offense and special teams. His ****ty attitue is what drops his value, but the talent is there.

And I don't think Wright and Desean really compare...Wright is a bit more solidly built, he catches balls in traffic better, but he doesn't have the wheels that Desean does.

Like I said, I needed to see Wright to run a 4.37 consistently to put him the first round (or at least a consitent 4.39). He didn't.

Why a 4.37 specifically? Walterfootball had him at a 4.41 at his pro day. In a track meet a .04 difference would essentially be a photo finish. Why would that infantessimal difference in speed make any difference on a football field?

For the record, Steve Smith ran a 4.41 40 in 01. I can guarantee you if there was a redo of that draft he'd go in rd 1

These ultra small differences in speed are only important in track and field where the absolute fastest time matters.
