The Tennessee Titans got a great pick at 20th overall, picking Baylor wide receiver Kendall Wright.

For Wright, he'll be receiving a big playbook to learn to prepare for his first year in the NFL. Surprisingly, this will be Wright's first time ever using a playbook for football.

He didn't even use one in college, nor high school.

“For me, it’s learning everything,” Wright said.  “I was just out there.  We had a lot of different stuff we ran at Baylor.  But right now I have a playbook that I’m studying every night and going over with coaches in the meetings.  It’s a different learning process for me.”

Wright memorized over 300 plays during his college career with the Bears, which is pretty astonishing. It looks like the Titans will see an easy transition for him remembering plays.

“It’s a big book with a lot of plays in it, so I’m just looking at whatever position coach [Dave Ragone] wants me to look at,” Wright said.  “There’s a lot of different positions he’s got me looking at.  I’m just soaking it all in and going through it every day.”

“Kendall looks good,” Tennessee head coach, Mike Munchak said.  “He looks like we thought.  A lot of learning going on, a lot of teaching going on. . . .  It’s hard to get too excited over a rookie after a day or two, but I think all the guys look like we thought they would.”

Pretty interesting. You don't really hear things like this everyday.
