Jaylen Wright Scouting Report
Jaylen Wright is one of top ranked running backs in North Carolina in both services. An extremely strong runner that can break tackles driving with his legs and get away in a hurry and create separation. Good footwork and quickness after changing directions which forces defenders to hesitate. As shown below at the 02:05 mark, Wright can catch out of the back field and make people miss. Vision is excellent with running instincts to go with his elusiveness. Already a good size and should be able to add solid mass without losing top notch speed. Wright looks extremely versatile as he runs appearing to glide with superb balance. (DT Yates)
