Darnell Wright


OT



Evaluation

Andrew Wilbar: Wright is an intriguing prospect. He does not display exceptional quickness out of his stance, but his knowledge of the game is better than most of his opponents, which gives him the edge in most matchups. During his media press conference at the combine, he was explaining how pass rushers have three main things they can attack you with: speed, power, and finesce. He went on to describe how no pass rusher can do more than two effectively, while also explaining how a lineman’s stance should be to counteract each type of pass rusher. As a run defender, he may not be the most technically sound, but he flatout moves defenders off the ball. At the end of the day, I do not see Wright escaping the first round, and I consider him a Day 1 starter at right tackle.
