2012 NFL Draft: Kendall Wright's Status Fluctuating In Final Mocks

While Baylor WR Kendall Wright has been seen as a first-round pick throughout most of the pre-draft season, the final mock drafts from some of the leading NFL writers have to be a concern to Wright's camp.

Over at SI.com, Don Banks has Wright going No. 22 to the Cleveland Browns, which is where he's been projected to go for quite some time:

22WR Kendall Wright Baylor Sr. 5-10 196 (From Atlanta)


This strikes me as too early a slot to go after Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden, especially if Cleveland can grab Wright and give its anemic offense a double dose of playmaking potential with Richardson at No. 4 and the ex-Baylor receiver at No. 22.

However, the news is not quite as good at NFL.com, where Mike Mayock has Wright slipping to the San Francisco 49ers at No. 30.

Meanwhile, ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. has Wright falling out of the first round entirely, with Justin Blackmon, Michael Floyd and Georgia Tech's Stephen Hill the only WR's going in the first 32 picks.

What all of this means on Thursday night remains to be seen, but Wright could end up in the dreaded Aaron Rodgers position as the last player taken out of the green room.
