Was Kendall Wright slighted?

The Titans receiver finished his first season with 64 catches, tied for the rookie lead with Jacksonville’s Justin Blackmon.

Meanwhile in Indianapolis, T.Y. Hilton caught 50 passes but was much more threatening downfield.



Wright was eighth in the league in third-down catches with 22, but Blackmon was tied for 13th with 19.

These are three solid guys from the AFC South for two slots on the All-Rookie Team.

I can’t object to Blackmon and Hilton being the choices.

Also on the All-Rookie Team, selected by members of the Pro Football Writers Association in conjunction with Pro Football Weekly: Colts tight end Dwayne Allen, punter Bryan Anger and Hilton in a second slot -- punt returner.
