Running Report

Wright was more unknown than known despite running for an elite SEC school in Tennessee. After his outstanding NFL Combine, he is projected to be a top-5 RB drafted. With a 4.38 40-yard dash (2nd among RB) and a 11’ 2” broad jump (1st among RB) he showed just how explosive he could be at the next level. Wright regularly bounces outside the tackles to showcase the speed with one cut in order to take it the distance. He has the power to break tackles when he needs to; has the toughness to finish plays to the fullest potential. Very efficient back carrying in his final season as the lead back for the Volunteers with 7.4 YPC; improved from his 6.0 YPC in his 2022 season as the lead back. He had 9 less carries from his previous season to this past season with nearly 150 extra yards this past season. Had 4 runs of 40+ yards showing massive big-play potential.


Pass Catching Report

Capable pass-catcher out of the backfield with soft hands to find the ball and quickly transition to make plays. Only 22 catches last season but took them for 141 yards. Highlighted pass-catching ability with a 7-catch game vs Alabama (7 for 7). 


Where Does He Fall Short?

Wright fumbled the ball 4 times in his 2022 season. He improved this past season by fumbling only 1 time. Will resort to bouncing outside more often and not trust his vision to find holes through the offensive line. He was never the biggest source of scoring touchdowns for his team, only managing 4 rushing scores in his final season.
