At 20, Titans take Baylor receiver Kendall Wright

The Tennessee Titans have added a playmaker in their passing game.

With the 20th pick in the first round of the 2012 NFL draft, the Tennessee Titans have selected Kendall Wright, a wide receiver from Baylor who was the top receiver of Robert Griffin III last season. Wright had a very productive 2011 season at Baylor, catching 108 passes for 1,663 yards and 14 touchdowns, and he should make a significant impact in the Titans’ passing game as a rookie.

There were some questions about Wright coming out of the Scouting Combine, when he ran a slower than expected 40-yard dash time. But the tape shows that Wright has speed when he’s in pads even if he ran a slow 40 in shorts, and his solid Pro Day showing solidified his status as a first-round pick.

Now the Titans have given their quarterback — either Matt Hasselbeck or Jake Locker — a good weapon in the passing game. Wright is a good addition to the Titans’ offense.

    Since 1997, when they arrived in Tennessee, the Titans have a horrible track record when it comes to both drafting wide receivers and signing them as free agents. Derrick Mason and Kenny Britt (who’s still proving himself) are the exceptions. Hopefully, Kendall Wright–a major playmaker–will end that nightmare of a trend.

    He better be bad ass cause I’m not really sure the Titans should have went WR in the 1st rd. I’m going to give the GM the benefit of the doubt on this one but he starts sucking & dropping passes then I’m going to be giving them hell for this pick!!!

    Go Titans!!! Go Kendall!!!

    Be bad ass on the field!!!

    I’m a mad about this pick even though we did need more help at wideout with Britt being injured all the time. Our biggest need I think is corner. We should definitely take a corner with out 2nd rd pick.

    If Britt can come back 100% then all of a sudden the Titans passing attack looks very formidable.
