Chargers 2011 Draft: USC CB Shareece Wright
There are times where he will struggle to come out of his breaks due to stiff hips, but his closing speed and aggressiveness help him make up for that deficiency. His footwork and hip work both need some improvement if he hopes to ever become a starter in the NFL. His weak performance at the Senior Bowl was his biggest downfall, where he struggled to prove his athleticism and coverage skills.
Much like with the addition of Clemson DB Marcus Gilchrist, the Chargers are looking to add depth at cornerback with Wright. They have two solid starters in Quentin Jammer and Antoine Cason, but there is a lack of depth which they are doing their best to address. Wright provides immediate support and continues to help build up the strength of the defensive backfield.
Wright is a boom or bust type of prospect whose future depends primarily on whether he has the determination to make himself a better player when he enters the NFL. He has the physical tools to become a starting cornerback. Whether that happens sooner or later, he will find a way to contribute to the Chargers’ defense from the get-go.
