Prospect Profiles: Shareece Wright

SHAREECE WRIGHT, CB, USC

Triangle Numbers: 5-10, 185, 4.46

Scouting Reports:

Draft Countdown:

Strengths:
• Good height and decent bulk with long arms
• Athletic and smooth with nice speed and a burst
• Quick and agile with superb change of direction
• Fluid hips, excellent feet and transitions well
• Able to turn and run with wideouts downfield
• Displays above average instincts and awareness
• Aggressive and physical with adequate strength
• Gets a nice jam at the line of scrimmage
• Is not afraid to hit or support the run
• Very competitive and has a short memory
• Still has considerable upside

Weaknesses:
• Is still relatively inexperienced
• Takes some unnecessary chances
• Is not a very reliable tackle
• Intelligence is a question mark
• Hasn’t been much of a playmaker
• Ran into some trouble off the field
• Durability and health are concerns

Sideline Scouting:

Positives: Has good speed and average size for the position… Is a very athletic corner with good instincts, is heady in pursuit and run support, will go for the ball and force some fumbles when given the opportunity… Has pretty good strength for his frame, not overly physical, but uses good leverage and angles most of the time… Has good explosiveness when blitzing from the corner, takes pretty good angles and wraps up effectively when in the backfield… Displays solid ball skills, quick to locate the ball in the air when in deep man coverage… Has a high motor, takes pretty good pursuit angles and does not give up on plays to his side… Zone coverage skills may be better than man-to-man skills at this point because of good instincts and play recognition… Has quick, fluid hips and solid footwork in the backpedal and when coming out of breaks, natural athletic ability is one of his strongest attributes, has a natural ability to flow with the ball… Upside is fairly high at this point because of lack of experience, has a lot of the physical tools to be a very good NFL corner, may just need time to put it all together at the next level.

Negatives: Was declared academically ineligible for the 2009 season before regaining eligibility for bowl game, has also missed time due to injury, durability is a concern, especially with slight frame… Was charged with resisting a police officer in 2009, off-field issues and injury history could significantly hurt stock on draft day… May need a longer adjustment period than most corners due to amount of time missed at USC… Production has been well below average, even playing a full season in 2010, has just one career interception… Not the surest tackler in the open field, gets overaggressive at times and lunges with his shoulder, needs to work on keeping head up when tackling, especially after sustaining a neck injury… Will bite on double moves in man coverage, appears to be much more comfortable playing short zone coverage and in run support.

National Football Post:

Has had a tough time staying on the field over the course of his career due to injury and academic problems. However, showcases some physicality as a tackler and generates good power on contact. Could do a better job wrapping up, but loves to throw his body around.

Looks natural sitting into his stance when asked to play up near the line and press. However, he isn’t real consistent with his bump. Too often likes to play in the trail technique and allows himself to get too upright and will struggle to quickly regain his balance and click and close on the football when he isn’t physical off the line. But, when he does try to re-route off the line he looks much more comfortable maintaining his balance, quickly getting in and out of his breaks and can run with receivers down the field. Exhibits good ball skills and awareness vertically and routinely is able to quickly get his head around and find the throw. Isn’t quite as impressive in zone at this stage, has a tendency to overextend when asked to get a bump off the line and will lose track of the football. Nevertheless, he’s a coordinated enough athlete to read his pass keys and put himself in position because of instincts and closing speed to make plays on the football. Really struggles to keep his pad level down in off-coverage, allows himself to get too leggy when trying to regain his balance out of his breaks and doesn’t have much click and close ability on throws in front of him because of it.

Impression: Really seemed to take a step back under the new coaching at USC in 2010. Had some good tape as a junior and looks more like a press only corner to me, but I have reservations thinking this guy can be a starter for you on the outside.

GiantsGab Thoughts:

Shareece Wright is a mid round corner prospect with a healthy dose of upside. Somewhat raw, after not playing that much due to injuries. Good height/weight/speed combo. Athletic. Physical, can run well. Probably more of a number 3 corner, but, that’s a very important position. Will probably be a 3rd or 4th round pick. Not the tall corner the Giants usually look for, but is still certainly a prospect that should intrigue the Giants. They hit gold with Terrell Thomas from USC a few years back. They like big schools. Wright could be a nice number three corner. He would start out as a number 4, help on special teams and they could get increased playing time as he learns the system. Of course, check out our interview with Wright here.
