Biography

 

PRO: The Titans used the 20th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft to select Baylor wide receiver Kendall Wright.  Since then, Wright became the first player in franchise history to lead the team in receptions in each of his first two NFL seasons, and his 158 catches in that span were the most in team annals for a player’s first two campaigns.  The 5-foot-10-inch, 191-pounder made an immediate impact in 2012 by tying for the NFL lead among rookies with 64 receptions.  In 2013, his 94 catches ranked fifth in franchise history for a single season, and his 1,079 receiving yards were the most by a Titans player since 2004 (Drew Bennett and Derrick Mason).  Wright was used principally as a slot receiver in college, but he has grown to become a weapon that can be used all over the field.  He is a primary weapon whose sudden burst and consistent, strong hands figure to make him a key component in the Titans’ offensive scheme for years to come.

•    Wright concluded his Baylor career as the most decorated and accomplished receiver in school history.  He set virtually every significant receiving record for the program, totaling 302 receptions for 4,004 yards and 30 touchdowns.  He never missed a game in his four years with the Bears and recorded at least one reception in every contest.  
•    As a senior in 2011, Wright set Baylor single-season records in receptions (108), receiving yards (1,663), receiving touchdowns (14), 100-yard games (nine), all-purpose yards (1,772) and consecutive games with a reception (tied own record with 13).  He landed on numerous All-American lists and was a Biletnikoff Award semi-finalist.
