College: Tennessee Volunteers
Darnell Wright Draft Profile
Darnell Wright is a big-bodied bulldozer. Run-heavy teams will likely drool over the possibilities Wright could their team. He started at right tackle last season and left tackle the year prior. His footwork greatly improved last season, showing his coachability. Wright rose to the occasion and played very well against Will Anderson Jr., which proves he could play tackle in the NFL.
While Anderson has shown the ability to play tackle at the next level, he has shown much more tape that suggests he would be better at guard. He needs to work on hand placement, his bend isn’t great and got tricked on stunts a bit too often. If Wright starts at tackle for someone, he will need a teammate to help in pass protection.
