2012 Senior Bowl: Offense

Joe Adams, WR, Arkansas – Projects as a slot receiver/return specialist at the next level. Has some incredible athletic ability, which he showcased in his four punt return touchdowns this season. Has nice hands, but can be raw in his routes. I see him as a late third/early fourth round prospect.

Juron Criner, WR, Arizona – Impressive size at 6’4” 215, he doesn’t have the speed of some of the more highly touted receivers in the 2012 WR class. Projects as a possession receiver who could be a nice steal for a team in mid-late rounds. There have been whispers of character issues, I see him coming off the board in the 4th round.

Jeff Fuller, WR, Texas A&M – Another big strong WR who projects as a possession receiver in the NFL. He’s had an up and down senior season dealing with injuries. Good hands, but limited route running at Texas A&M, I see Fuller as an early pick in the third day of the draft.

TJ Graham, WR, North Carolina State – Raw, but explosive, Graham has just as much value in the return game as he does at WR. Could be one of the faster prospects at any position. Only really came on as a receiving prospect this season. If he has a strong draft season, I could see him as a 7th round pick.

T.Y. Hilton, WR, Florida International – Extremely skilled player who excelled against lesser competition. Can line up all over the field and play a number of roles including slot receiver, split out wide, returner and he took almost 70 hand offs during his career. If he has a strong draft season, I could see him rising into the second round.

Rishard Matthews, WR, Nevada – JC player who had a breakout year for Nevada in 2011 with 91 receptions for 1364 yards. Above average height at 6-0, with above average speed. Limited route running coming from Nevada. Likely a 7th round pick.

Dwight Jones, WR, North Carolina – Big tall physical receiver who could vault up draft boards with a solid senior bowl/combine. Doesn’t always take advantage of his wingspan by using his body to catch balls and may not have breakaway speed. I predict Jones sneaks into the first round.

Marquis Maze, WR, Alabama – Hurt his hamstring in the National Championship game, but should be healed for the Senior Bowl. A slot receiver/return specialist at the next level, has enough speed and agility to be able to make his mark. With a good draft season, I could see him being taken in the 5th or 6th round.

Marvin McNutt, WR, Iowa – Smart ex-QB with great size at 6-2 215. Occasionally struggles with drops, but had low 4.5 speed and had an exceptional season for Iowa in 2011 with 1315 yards and 82 receptions for 12 TDs. Projected fourth rounder.

DeVier Posey, WR, Ohio State – Shows a nice wingspan and can catch the ball away from his body. Has a lot to prove to pass over WRs currently higher than him on draft boards. Fourth round prospect.

Brian Quick, WR, Appalachian State – Don’t let his name deceive you, I actually have serious questions about Quick’s speed. He’s a huge target at 6-5 220 with great hands, but just because he can outrun FBS defenders, doesn’t mean he can outrun NFL defensive backs. I see Quick as a 4th or 5th round pick, but if he can prove his speed is for real, he could vault into the 2nd or 3rd rounds.

Gerell Robinson, WR, Arizona State – Brock Osweiler’s no. 1 target at Arizona State, Robinson is a big target at 6-3 222. Projects as a possession guy at the next level without top end speed. 6th round pick.

Nick Toon, WR, Wisconsin – Great size, hands and route running for a WR, can have trouble getting separation though. Son of 80s Jets WR Al Toon. 2nd/3rd round WR.

Kendall Wright, WR, Baylor – One of the best offensive players who will be showcased at the senior bowl. Has legit 4.4 speed, great hands and agility. Had a huge season for Baylor in 2011 with 108 catches for 1663 yards and 14 touchdowns. His heigh, 5-10, is his only real downfall. Legit 1st round prospect.
