Hasselbeck: Kendall Wright “explosive” and “as advertised”


The Titans haven’t wasted any time heaping a big practice role on No. 20 overall pick Kendall Wright. The rookie wide receiver is running as Tennessee’s starter at “X” wideout, Kenny Britt’s usual position.

(Britt is out with a knee injury.)

13-year veteran quarterback Matt Hasselbeck has seen his fair share of rookie receivers come into the league, and leave it. Hasselbeck has been impressed with Wright, and that might be putting it mildly.

“He’s been great,” Hasselbeck told the team’s website. “He’s been as advertised. He’s explosive. He’s a great kid, he’s a competitor. He’s not a big guy, but he’s been fun to have around. … It’s great to see.”

The Titans have openly spoken of running a more wide-open offense in 2012. With versatility to beat man coverage both as a slot receiver and out wide, Wright is expected to be a big part of that more aggressive philosophy.

    I bet there were many teams that had this kid on there draft boards. IMO he was the best receiver in this years draft, hands down.

    Titans win the AFCS. CJ2K returns to form,but not for 2K again,and the loss of Brisel,Dreesen,Winston,Vickers,and the lack of any real WR other than AJ keeps the Texans from the playoffs.
