According Gerry Dulac from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the Cincinnati Bengals are interested in Arkansas wide receiver Jarius Wright. The receiver who admits to modeling his game after Pittsburgh's Mike Wallace and Philadelphia's DeSean Jackson (get out of the state, son), is expected to break the 4.4-second barrier.

Our own Joe Goodberry adds:

One of the fastest receivers in the draft. Deep threat. He's my 15th-ranked WR and 103rd overall on my board. Solid third to fourth round pick.

Todd McShay lists Wright as one of nine players (In$ider) that could take home the fastest player crown. Others include teammates wide receiver Joe Adams, Baylor wide receiver Kendall Wright, Florida running back Chris Rainey, Miami wide receiver Travis Benjamin, Fresno State wide receiver Devon Wylie, North Carolina State receiver T.J. Graham, Georgia cornerback Brandon Boykin and Cal Poly cornerback Asa Jackson.

According to Scout, Inc., Wright graded above average in separation skills, ball skills, big play ability and competitiveness.
