Rundown: Wright is the second corner kick drafted by Dallas tonight, after former Kentucky standout Kelvin Joseph, their second-round pick at No. 44 overall. After a year at Laney College, California, where he helped the school win a state title, Wright accepted a scholarship offer from Oregon State and led the Beavers in wiretapping the last two seasons (five in total) in 18 games before declaring the draft. A pandemic-shortened season limited Oregon State to six games in 2020, but Wright still managed six pass breakups and two interceptions and achieved All-Pac-12 Honorable Mention honors.
How he fits in: At 6-4, Wright has a unique frame for the position and length to disturb receivers on the line for scrimmage. The Cowboys did not take a cornerback in round 1
Next Cowboys selection: Round 4 (115th overall)
