After serving as Robert Griffin III’s go-to wide receiver in college, Wright’s reputation took a bit of a hit as he was labeled as a loafer going into the 2012 NFL Draft. The Tennessee Titans didn’t pay any mind to those reports and selected Wright with the 20th overall pick. With Kenny Britt nursing injuries off-and-on all season long, Wright was able to establish a good rapport with Jake Locker and actually wound up with the most targets among the Titans’ wide receiver trio (Britt and Nate Washington being the other two). Wright hit the infamous rookie wall towards the end of the 2012 season and didn’t score as many touchdowns as fantasy owners would have liked (only four). However, another full offseason to work with Locker should do wonders for the duo, as the second-year receiver attempts to take the next step in his development. Wright is currently being selected in the ninth or 10th round of most mocks and should provide his owners with positive returns at that value.
