Wright had been a solid complimentary player in Baylor's high-octane offense who has turned into much more in his senior year. As Robert Griffin III's go-to option at receiver.. Wright is undersized but has the speed to take the top off of NFL defenses. He reminds many people of Steve Smith, the wide receiver for the Panthers. His athletic ability is his greatest strength, and he uses strong, polished technique to make up for his size deficiencies on the field. He has the wiggle and subsequent burst to make a move on a defender and get upfield. His ball skills are on par with his overall skills as a wideout, and he uses his footwork to run strong routes. He will have to improve his blocking and overall strength though.
The Ravens are at a need for wide receiver with the departure of Lee Evans. Wright would serve as a perfect compliment to Boldin and Smith. Boldin in getting up there in age. At best he will be able to preform at the number one receiver spot for three years. Said that, he still seems to come up with the big catches when needed and is more than willing to catch balls in traffic. Torrey Smith is all speed, he has lit up defenses with the catching the deep ball for touchdowns. Flacco has the arm to throw it deep too. There is not much talent behind Smith and Bolden. The recievers behind them would be the 5th or 6th wide reciever on most team depth charts.
In most of the mock drafts I have seen, Wright comes off the board earlier, so having fall to Baltimore is a big thing. It isn't their biggest need, but when a guy with his potential falls to you, you take him.
