Quarterback Kyle Wright spoke with CaneSport.com today about a few of the team's future offensive playmakers. Here's what he had to say about them:

* WR Jermaine McKenzie: "He's going to be very good. I was talking about it with coach (Patrick) Nix, and if he was healthy he'd be one of our best receivers. From what he's shown in the summer, in practice, he's going to be very special. His route-running, speed - he has unbelievable hands, didn't drop anything in the summertime. He was picking balls up off his feet running slant patterns. There's nothing bad you can say about Jermaine."

* QB Robert Marve: "I think he has a chance to be pretty good. He's going to have some major, major, major weapons and that always helps a quarterback. Robert's had a chance to sit back and learn this season, and that's good for a young quarterback, especially one with a lot of expectations."

Asked if Marve has as strong an arm as Wright, Wright said, "I think he has a very strong arm. We had that debate about a week ago. He thinks it's as strong. He's going to be a very good player. We can't wait to watch him and these wide receivers, this team coming up in the next couple of years."

* WR Daniel Adderley: "He was sick for a little while, out of commission. But you can't teach someone to be 6-6, have that kind of frame. He's young. The more experience he gets the better. I think he'll come along nicely."

* WR Leonard Hankerson: "I was really proud of how Hank stepped up and played this week in a hostile environment. He had a drop but went over the middle, made a catch. He's been through a few things on the field this year and I'm real happy he got his opportunity and did well."
