LSU WR James Wright picked by Cincinnati Bengals at No. 239 overall

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Former LSU wide receiver and special teams player James Wright was selected by the Cincinnati Bengals in the seventh round of the NFL draft.

Wright was chosen with the 239th overall pick.

The 6'2", 203-pounder turned into a special teams demon his senior season, when it became clear he would not be making many catches due to the stable of wide receivers on the team.

He excelled at getting to returners, leading LSU in special teams tackles.
