A heavy, powerful, battle tested right tackle that kept both Will Anderson and Bryan Bresee in check this season. Wright needs to stay on top of his weight, but coming in at 342 during Senior Bowl week was a positive step. He's a true right tackle only, a potential need for Joe Douglas.

A hulking right tackle that uses his mass to display excellent strength, Wright is the rare player that contained Will Anderson in 2022.
With the girth he carries and force he displays, it’s nearly impossible to convert any speed to power against Wright. He makes pass rushers take the long way, challenging them to beat his average foot speed with outside burst or inside counter moves. When he oversets to one side, he lacks the quickness to recover the other way.
In the run game, he can drive defenders off the snap working downhill. His run blocking is extremely high variance. There are reps where he unloads a tremendous amount of force to bury defenders. On other plays his pad level is high and he’s unable to sustain his block long enough to positively impact run.
If he can dial in a more consistent approach, he has the mass and raw ability to develop a north and south ground attack behind.
While speed rushers will give Wright problems on an island, his flashes are a coaches dream. He did a great job getting his weight down from the season to the Senior Bowl and then even further for the NFL Combine.
If he locks in his focus and builds up his endurance, he can hold down the right tackle spot for a team for the foreseeable future. Due to some risk here, he’s closer to a day two grade than the round one hype he’s received.
