NFL Combine 2012: Baylor WR Kendall Wright Will Run 40-Yard Dash

Baylor Bears star wide receiver Kendall Wright is looking to improve his draft stock at the NFL Combine, Wright had to pull out of the Senior Bowl due to an ankle injury. Wright has recovered from the injury and will run the 40-yard dash.

Wright is battling with Oklahoma St. Cowboys wide receiver Justin Blackmon for the top wide receiver prospect and depending where one reads on the Internet it would vary who is one or two, but these two are considered the No. 1 and No. 2 receivers.

Wright is known for his speed and the 40-yard time could determine which of the two gets picked ahead of the other in the draft. If Wright can run in the 4.3 range the speculation is that would be fast enough to get him picked in the top-15, and ahead of Blackmon.

His time will depend on how well his ankle feels and a tenth of a second slower or fast could determine his draft fate.
