Er...

I'm saying he's good and you shouldn't really need the combine to see that. Obviously it would be nice if he put up freakish numbers, but who cares? Look at Jerry Rice, never had the best speed jumping ability or strength but he knew how to play.
If it was all about how a guy looked on the field and how productive he was then the number one pick every year would be a running back from Division II. I think the Combine is simply a way for scouts to bring into perspective what they have seen on tape. Is this guy really that fast, or is the defender he just burned 3 times a total stiff? He looks really good mauling his opponent...is he really strong or is that guy a total puss? I think it would be foolish to use it exclusively, but also to completely discard it.

Yes because Blackmon blowing up in Division 1 against premier competition on a regular basis is the same as a division two running back.

I still think Mike Wallace is a good comparison for Wright. His stock right now could be as high at 7 to Jacksonville, and could fall potentially to 19 to the Bears since they really need a #1 WR for Cutler. Wright won't put up 100 rec., but will be a good deep threat that will make the defense open up a lot more in the middle.

My reasoning for having Wright over Blackmon is simply I don't see any elite traits in Blackmon. I think he will be a very good WR in the NFL. He kinda reminds me of a cross between Greg Jennings and Anquan Boldin. But saying he is a amazing because he produced in a simplified offense in the big 12 just doesn't wow me.

Blackmon has very good hands, very good body control, very good playing speed, he is a good route runner, he is very good with the ball in his hands. I just don't think anything he does is elite.

Wright on the other hand is elite with the ball in his hands, he runs away from defenders (while wearing pads, not just on a running track), he goes up to get the ball at its peak.

I agree with the people who have said that the bust potential is higher with Wright than Blackmon. Blackmon is a safer prospect but I just don't see how he is going to become a star in the NFL.

If Wright was healthy and dominated the Senior Bowl we could have this conversation. As it stands he needs to firm up his stock. Missing the SB hurt his stock.

Also want to talk about freakish numbers, how about 40 TD in 38 games? how about winning 2 Bilitnikoff trophies in 3 years? Blackmon is an extremely productive player. Poor man's Larry Fitz. Combine numbers won't matter for him as much, just as they didn't matter as much for Dez Bryant or Michael Crabtree.

I couldn't find a more recent thread, but I didn't want to start my own...

Since a lot of people are mocking Wright to the Browns, I've been a little worried since the reports of only managing four reps on the bench. Then, when doing a little light reading, I came across this

With all of these little red flags, it begins to make me wonder if the inexplicable combine 40 time was due to lack of preparation. Maybe that's not fair, but it has now crossed my mind due to the other "problems."

So, with all of that said, I'm not sure if he's worth the Browns taking at #22. Can someone convince me otherwise???

If Wright could manage to survive his academic workload at Baylor, IMO he can handle an NFL playbook.

He's a really good WR and great value at 22. That's all you need to know.

Default Kendall Wright Comparison?

Hi, I not much know about that players. I rear saw the match. It was a nice that people give his opinions. I don't have any opinion now. I could not compare anyone.
