NC State defensive back Dravious Wright was one of ProFootballFocus‘ top rated cornerbacks in the nation in Week 7. Wright doesn’t technically play cornerback, but I guess this is the best place to put the nickel back.
Cornerback: Jhavon Williams, UConn 92.6 and Dravious Wright, NC State 87.5
Williams was targeted five times, allowing only one catch for eight yards while intercepting a pass and deflecting two more. It was by far his best game of the season. Wright plays more of a slot role for NC State, but he nearly led the upset of No. 3 Clemson by forcing two fumbles and recovering one of them in the overtime loss. (PFF)
Wright had 9 tackles in the loss against Clemson, with 2 forced fumbles, and 1 fumble recovery. On the season, Wright has 29 tackles, 3 forced fumbles, and 3 pass breakups.
