2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Jarius Wright, WR, Arkansas

Wright was a four-year force at Arkansas and he saved his best campaign for last. The wide receiver caught 19 passes as a freshman, 41 as a sophomore, and 42 as a junior. In his first three seasons with the Razorbacks he made 12 touchdown catches, including 10 total in 2009 and 2010. If some is good, though, more is even better. As a senior, Wright erupted for 1117 yards and 12 touchdowns on 66 receptions. Against future SEC foe Texas A&M, Wright went off for 281 yards and two scores on 13 catches. He helped lead Arkansas to an 11-2 record (11-0 against everyone other than Alabama and LSU).

The Warren, AR native stands at 5'10'' and 180 pounds. What makes him an incredible player, of course, is his speed. Wright consistently runs in the 4.3s of the 40-yard dash and he has been clocked as fast as 4.28 from that distance. He could really tear it up at the combine and impress NFL scouts. Wright will also be able to contribute on special teams, but he needs to add some bulk to his frame without sacrificing speed. Otherwise he will not be able to contend with cornerbacks when they get physical with him at the line of scrimmage. Wright should go off the board in the fourth or fifth round of the 2012 NFL Draft.
