2012 NFL Combine: Kendall Wright Will Run In Indianapolis

Baylor wide receiver Kendall Wright is starting to get more and more attention the 2012 NFL Scouting Combine kicks off this week in Indianapolis. A fast forty time could garner Wright even more attention. According to Adam Caplan of SiriusXM, Wright will run the forty.

If Wright manages to run his forty in under 4.4 seconds, it could put him in the conversation as the best receiver available in the 2012 NFL Draft. Oklahoma State’s Justin Blackmon has been the hands down favorite to be the first receiver off the board, but he will sit out the forty at the Combine.

The New England Patriots could really use a receiver like Wright, who strikes fear in the hearts of opposing secondaries with deep speed, solid route running and a good pair of hands.

Unfortunately for the Patriots, Wright now figures to be off the board when they make their first pick, the 27th spot acquired from New Orleans in last year’s draft.
