Pros: Rejzohn Wright is one of the better cover corners the casual audience is unaware of! He a tall and long cornerback that plays with swag and a competitive drive. Wright matches up well with the bigger-body/contested-catch wide receivers. The combination of his frame and arm length allows him to match up with detached tight ends as well. He competes at a high level versus the run and pass. He is not afraid to trigger downhill and get into the mix of things as a force defender. Wright is a physical corner when aligned in press. He attacks opponents with a two-handed jam to disrupt their route timing. Wright does a good job reading and diagnosing plays from depth before triggering to attack on the ball carrier. His eye discipline was impressive along with his football IQ when tasked with switch releases.
Cons: It’s essential for Rejzohn Wright to get his hands on twitchy receivers early in the process. If not, they can force his gate (hips) to open sooner than Wright prefers. Wright displays functional fluidity but I have concerns about his ability to quickly gear down with more athletic wideouts. In the speed department, Wright is not the fastest nor most explosive athlete on the field. This can force him out of press alignment where he seems most comfortable. Questions about if he can run step for step with explosive receivers are valid. Wright does not have high ball production, despite a decent target percentage throughout his career.
