Draft Scouting Report

Draft Scouting Report:

Rating: 86.82 (Long-term starter)

Pro Comparison: Joe Barksdale


Darnell Wright showed improvement from 2021 to 2022 but remains a work in progress. He has a strong upper body that allows him to absorb contact but needs to play with better balance. Lateral quickness and speed to run the arc are concerns, but he has a relentless attitude to finish plays. Wright has long arms to shock and re-direct rushers.
