Mykael Wright CB Oregon Draft Profile

Strengths
  • Good instincts and anticipation reads and reacts with discipline. Dangerous with the ball in his hands.
  • Has good awareness and quick feet. Fluid backpedal, aggressive attacking the receiver from the snap, and flashes spectacular ball skills.
  • A coordinated athlete with good footwork and balance. A heady cover player with above-average ยท feel and anticipation in space.
  • Should excel as a zone defender because of his closing speed to wrap receivers after the catch.
  • Has legitimate NFL-caliber cover skills. Has a quick, low backpedal with a fluid hip turn to cover receivers down the field.
Weaknesses
  • Holds the ball loosely. Inconsistent in run support. Average tackler
  • Inconsistent getting off of blocks. Can be a step slow to react when a quarterback comes back to his side of the field late in progression.
  • Fails to maintain inside technique in man coverage. Not a press corner.
  • Will slip off tackles and needs to finish more consistently.
  • Suspect technician who too often lets the action come to him and energy and effort are too inconsistent.
