Kendall Wright dives for a touchdown against Iowa State
It would be a crime to state that Kendall Wright is a backup or sidekick to Robert Griffin III, however, that is how he was viewed for most of this season.
Even after he threw a critical first-down pass to beat TCU, the nation just did not know this star wide receiver.
Even so, Wright did not falter in his play.
He was the go-to guy for Griffin and he rarely, if ever, dropped a touchdown pass.
It has since become a common sight to see Wright blowing past the opponent’s secondary with outstretched arms to catch the deep ball for a touchdown.
Piling up 1,663 yards this season and 14 touchdowns, Baylor’s best receiver in history placed in at an astounding No. 3 position in the nation for overall receiving yards.
With play similar to Pittsburgh Steelers star Mike Wallace, any NFL team in need of a speedy wide receiver should see the same benefits that helped Baylor win multiple games this season.
