Jags feel Wrighster is the right fit
The 6-foot-2 and 240 pound tight end with 4.65 speed in the forty, combine's excellent speed and route running skills to fit in perfect for the west coast offense. This past year as a junior, he started 13 games, producing career-high numbers of 41 receptions for 568 yards and 6 scores. Sophomore totals were 12/126/1 after not catching a pass the prior season. He was a second team All-Conference selection in 2002.
Back in April at Oregon's pro-day workouts, Wrighster, did very well. In fact he has dropped only three passes of the almost 60 that have been thrown to him over three separate workouts. At the Indy combine, he checked in at
6-foot-2 and 249 pounds.
The downside to Wrighster is his strength and blocking ability. At the combine, he only bench-pressed 225 pounds 16 times.
