Nashon Wright thinks very highly of himself and there’s nothing wrong with that.
The Oregon State Beavers cornerback heard his name called when the Dallas Cowboys selected him with the No. 99 overall pick in the third round of the 2021 NFL Draft.
After he was drafted, Wright had a bold comparison between himself and Richard Sherman, stating he was a betetr version.
“I kinda look at myself as a more athletic and agile Richard Sherman,” the rookie said. “Yeah that scheme fits perfect.”
The future Hall of Famer caught wind of Wright’s comments and had a blunt reaction to it:
Nahshon capped off his collegiate career at Oregon State with 64 tackles, 1.5 tackles, one sack, five interceptions, 11 pass deflections, and one forced fumble.
Last season, Wright intercepted two passes, broke up six, and tallied 30 tackles in six games while earning All-Pac-12 Honorable Mention honors.
He has a long way before he can even think about reaching the conversation of being better than Richard Sherman.
