Nick Crago brought this up in a FanShot on Thursday, but I wanted to reemphasize momentarily for our work crowd that's more interested in Cincy Jungle than they are, you know, actually working. Though one could be led to believe that it's more smoke and mirrors, oozing with manipulation that would make Al Swearengen proud, several NFL teams are listing Baylor wide receiver Kendall Wright as nothing more than a third-round selection on their respective big boards, according to Pro Football Weekly.

They write:

Wright began warranting first-round grades from evaluators late in the season, and Ganaway moved as high as the third round in the eyes of some evaluators. Postseason workouts had a sobering effect on both prospects.

The way we hear it, the hype machine has come full circle with Wright, as he remains parked in the third round on a number of draft boards, in large part because of his work ethic and approach.

We bring this up in part due to the expectation that Cincinnati will target the wide receiver position at some point during the NFL draft. If someone like Kendall Wright is available when the Bengals are on the clock with the No. 83 overall selection, and the team hadn't selected a wide receiver by that point, one has to believe that Wright could be of supreme interest.
