Verdict

Wright & Boone were largely bit players at LSU, never more than third or fourth options on offense. They leave Baton Rouge with a combined 69 career catches (44 for Boone, 25 for Wright) and eight touchdowns (all Boone), and neither is likely to hear his name called in this weekend's draft. That said, they'll both have a shot to make a roster as undrafted free agents, and with some surprisingly solid measurables, who knows how they'll take advantage of that opportunity. Reportedly, Wright has a very big fan in current New York Jets (and former LSU) special teams coach Thomas McGaughey. That's no surprise, as he was the Tigers' special teams MVP in 2013. Players like Courtney Roby, Kassim Osgood, Ted Ginn and Danny McCray have all been able to carve out nice careers in the NFL almost exclusively on special teams. There's no reason to think Wright couldn't do the same. Boone has good speed and agility, and was fairly reliable when LSU called upon him last season. There's enough upside for him to catch on somewhere with hard work and a little luck.
