    Kind of a not so common private workout just days before the draft.

    If Kendall Wright did everything 'right' in that private workout then it might end the streak of no WRs drafted in the first round for the Pats.

    However Wright might be gone when the Jets go to pick because they need a WR opposite Holmes...if Wright gets to 27 then he might be hard to pass up.

    Wright made RG3 look a lot better than he really is IMO

    Wright would be an excellent fit for our offense. credit to Sciz, he called Wright as a possible pick a couple of days ago.

    If the Jets draft anything other than an OL in the first, they are insane.

    I was wondering what people thought about that. Who made who look better? They are both first round talents. BB could be thinking Wright is the better player, but then it could be smoke screen as well.

    Kendall Wright 5'-10", 196 lbs, 4.61 sec 40 yard at the 2012 NFL Combine. No thanks.

    Wide receiver Ryan Broyles from Oklahoma ran faster at his Pro Day and Ryan Broyles is still recovering from ACL surgery.

    So you think that Wright is slow, but with RG3's mobility to keep the play going maybe it helped him get separation?

    With such a deep draft at wide receiver, why select a wide receiver in the first round (Kendall Wright) when a wide receiver of comparable talent (Ryan Broyles) will be available in the third or fourth round?

    If you think that 4.61 is at all an indication of his speed on the field, then you're crazy.

    Or using it to get info on other Baylor players they might be interested in (other than RG3 obviously), ala taking Tebow for dinner in the North end and then drafting Cunningham, Spikes and Hernandez...

    He ran a faster time at his Pro-day. I love when stupid people dismiss on the field speed because of the 40s that players run in their underwear 1 or 2 times.

    I think it's more likely their ears picked up at stories of Wright falling and decided to get him in and see what he's about just in case he does.

    I love Ryan Broyles but no-one should dismiss Kendall Wright. The tape shows how good he is. You have a reasonable point about the relative value favouring Broyles however.

    No chance. The home run threat of RG3s legs caused a lot of defenders to cheat to the run. Similar thing happened in 2010 with Michigan and Denard Robinson. I know Robinson's home run threat helped his arm out but these two prospects are not comparable.

    Just look at the guys mechanics. They're all there!

    The more I watch Wright I just don't see him as a fit here...not sure why....I just don't think I want any part of him or any WR really before the 3rd round.

    That's exactly my point: relative VALUE

    In addition, Ryan Broyles was also an accomplished punt returner in college.

    I'd rather expend a first round draft pick on a defensive player and a third and/or fourth round draft pick on wide receiver(s) in a deep wide receiver class.

    Agreed, I believe Jerry Rice ran a 4.6 forty as well.

    I think it was Casserely for what its worth, but he thinks Wright can't play on the outside and will only be effective as a slot WR.
