08:04 AM ET 04.06 | Truly believing in the results of pro days can be folly, but there are aspects of them that become worthwhile. Improvements in the almighty 40-yard dash and other athleticism tests are as important to [the wide receiver] position as they are to any during the evaluation process. ... Kendall Wright, WR, Baylor (5-10, 196): His 4.61 official combine 40 time raised eyebrows, since scouts pegged him for a "4.4 guy" based on his game tape. (His 1,663 receiving yards this year ranked third in the country.) He met those expectations at his pro day, putting up times of 4.44 and 4.41 seconds. As a result, he'll probably join his Heisman Trophy-winning battery partner Robert Griffin III in the first round.

Lol He'd be a beast as a WR or CB if he's got any speed. And, who names their son Britney? Doesn't look like any Britney I've ever seen.

How many players from Stanford will be drafted in the first round with Luck? How many of them go in the first and second rounds? I think Luck had more weapons/protection around him than RGIII had. I predict Luck is in for a rude awakening in Indy. He will have no help.

Kendall Wright is a kick- and punt-returner/WR. Unless they are really great (e.g., D-Jax), they don't go that high. We're not talking big receiver like Floyd or Blackmon here.

But he is a WR and they go first round if they have the grades.

Even D-Jax didn't go in the first round.

Ted Ginn Jr did though.

You think Wright is that good?
