Josh Doctson

TCU rSr 6020 202 1-2

Mainstay of Horned Frog offense...Natural athleticism and above average game-speed....Has got the size and know how to use it...Big hands/"can swallow the ball."....not a blazer but fast enough for size....good on jump balls...tough over the middle...willing blocker....productive...must get bigger and stronger and work on his route skills...questionable deep speed....

*Will Fuller
3
Notre Dame Jr 6000 186 2

Nice triangle numbers...Key characteristic is speed, but is more than just a track star....effective route runner but will need to get stronger to avoid being man-handled.....tracks ball well....tough in crowd (wins most jump ball battles) ....but lacks second gear....won't leave NFL corners behind, but good enough to rip off chunk yards....Hand snatcher but could be more consistent at it (suffered from a bit of dropsy last year)......Will fight for YAC....competitive position blocker...Not the biggest, toughest or fastest in this draft, but can get the job done as a #2 and has improved year by year....Always there to make the big play when you need him..."...has as much if not more big-play potential as any player in this year's draft...small hands...seldom snatches the ball out of the air.

*Tyler Boyd
12+
Pittsburgh Jr 6010 197 2

Big dude with very good body control...Good though not outstanding size-speed ratio...Impressive production....Above average route runner but not explosive out of his breaks...Doesn't win enough jump balls..."Turns into RB after the catch." (Good open field instincts)........Can hand-catch but too often body snatches....Could get stronger...Lacks upside...DUI incident on his resume...PFDG projects as an oversized slot receiver..."...similar to Nelson Agholor...good but not great play speed...very good runner after the catch..." - PFW (Gabriel).

Pro Day (Brandt) - "... ran the 40-yard dash in 4.54 and 4.5 seconds, and then stood on the rest of his numbers from the NFL Scouting Combine. Boyd is an excellent wide receiver who runs really good routes. He also caught punts during the pro day, and he did a really good job of that, too."

Forty: 4.58...VJ: 34.0...BP: 11...SS: 4.35...3C: 6.90

120+
*Pharoh Cooper
12+
South Carolina Jr 5110 203 2

"Electric athlete/beast with ball in his hands:" - PFDG...Raw, techinque and route-wise..."...has played WR, RB, QB, KR...needs to develop overall route running skills..." - PFW (Gabriel)...

Forty: DNR (Est. 4.50)....VJ: 31...BP: 15

120+
*Rashard Higgins
11
Colorado State Jr 6010 196 2

Smooth and creative wideout...good technician (savvy, fluid and sharp route runner) - some understanding of nuances of position....smart route runner....good technical execution (sets up receivers with shoulder and head fakes)...reads coverage rotation on the fly....but ball-skills are inconsistent...can't explode into top gear but effective after the catch.....most comfortable working outside the markers, but willing to work the inside...Will sometimes get rattled in jump ball situations....PFDG pegs him as a #3 or #4 receiver physically...

Pro Day (Brandt): "...ran the 40-yard dash in 4.65 and 4.6 seconds. He had a 32 1/2-inch vertical jump and 10-foot broad jump. He did the 20-yard short shuttle in 4.53 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.13 seconds. "Hollywood" Higgins had a really good workout. He catches the ball really well and is a good route runner. Higgins is a good receiver who just lacks all-out speed."

Forty: 4.64...VJ: 32.0...BP: 13...

67
Sterling Shepard
4
Oklahoma Sr 5100 194 2-3

Underrated sleeper on some draft lists...Projects as slot guy with decent mechanics but lacking elite speed...Good feel for position but lacks ideal burst out of breaks....can separate vs. zone coverage...Decent ball skills/can catch on the run...adjusts well to poorly thrown balls....more quick than fast...Ok working the middle of the field....PFDG says he's a polished receiver "who could be unstoppable in the slot. "... but is a bit undersized..."Really, the only thing this player lacks is ideal size...a similar player to Brandon Cooks...ideal slot receiver but can also play outside." - PFW (Gabriel)....

Pro Day (Brandt) - "showed he can field punts as well as catch passes. After running a 4.48 40-yard dash at the combine and excelling in other testing in Indianapolis, Shepard limited his pro-day workout to position drills.

Forty: 4.48...VJ: 41.0...BP: 20...SS: 4.35...3C: 7.00...

79
Braxton Miller
6
Ohio State rSr 6010 201 2-3

ESPN projects him as a multi-faceted offensive weapon, but rates him as a QB..Describes him as "a runner first and a quarterback second."...PFDG concludes thst. although he has "starter upside", he might be a couple of seasons away from being productive as a receiver...Impressive 3-Cone number...Forty: 4.36

Pro Day (Brandt) - "Miller, who had expected to run in the 4.3s, was clocked at 4.50 in Indianapolis. And like Bosa, he improved on that at his pro day -- unofficially at least. Miller was clocked at 4.36 on one stopwatch, the kind of time that can make a difference on draft day for a player projected as a second-round selection...."one of the most exciting players in this year's draft class..raw as a receiver..." - PFW (Gabriel)

Forty: 4.50 (unofficial 4.36)...VJ: 35.0...BP: 17...SS: 4.07...3C: 6.65...

94
Leonte Carroo
7
Rutgers Sr 6000 211 3

PFDG says he's "an explosive athlete with a running back's build...But may be taken off some boards due to a domestic violence investigation...Polished, physical route runner with a checkered background, known for making big plays...but living near Rutgers and watching him play, his reputation always seemed to exceed his actual production...Can be a one-on-one mismatch...More a big, physical receiver with good hands than a he is a big, physical, fast WR with good hands....Tough over the middle..."...likely will need a period of adjustment...does appear to have a ceiling as a No. 2 receiver..." - PFW (Gabriel)

Pro Day (Brandt) - "It looks like that 4.50 40-yard dash that Rutgers WR Leonte Carroo ran at the combine isn't the only number he wants to show NFL scouts. Due to a nagging injury, Carroo sat out the Scarlet Knights' pro day on Wednesday, but he intends to hold a personal pro dayon March 31. Carroo pulled out of the Reese's Senior Bowl practice week with an injury, and wants to draw scouts again March 31 to run pass routes. The Miami Dolphins reportedly met with Carroo for a psychological test Wednesday."

Forty: 4.50....VJ: 35.5...BP: 14...

120+
*Bralon Addison
12+
Oregon rJr 5090 197 3-4

Small-slot sized receiver with good speed....Explodes off the LOS and reaches top speed in an instant...I'm pretty sure I saw him in one of the All Star games and came away impressed...."Playmaker who should emerge as a gadget weapon" - PFDG....(Note - 4.66 forty not very impressive - but 6.95 Three-Cone is)..."...tall...very raw....inconsistent" - PFW (Gabriel)...

Forty: 4.66....VJ: 34.5...BP: 13...SS: 4.14...3C: 6.95...

120+
Aaron Burbridge
12+
Michigan State Sr 6000 206 3-4

Lunchpail guy with thick build...tough over the middle..."...I don't see him as a deep threat, but he can become a good possession type receiver with the run strength and creativity to produce after the catch..." - PFW (Gabriel)...

Tulsa rSr 6030 220 3-4

Long-limbed long strider who lacks suddenness...

Pro Day )Brandt) - "Garrett had a 36 1/2-inch vertical and then stood on the rest of his numbers from the NFL Scouting Combine. Garrett had an outstanding positional workout. He caught the ball well and ran good routes."

131
*Roger Lewis
12+
Bowling Green rSo 6000 201 4

According to PFDG, he's a long-limbed explosive wideout with a a sordid past that will take him off some boards (but enormous upside will keep him on other boards)...

Pro Day (Brandt) - "(Lewis) ran the 40 in 4.46 and 4.48 seconds. He had a 36-inch vertical jump and 10-foot-5 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.45 seconds and the three-cone in 7.5 seconds.

Malcolm Mitchell

Georgia rSr 6000 198 4

Was considered one of the best athletes in college football before falling victim to a series of injuries...Extremely raw/considered a boom or bust prospect..."...not real quick in and out of cuts...doesn't consistently get separation..." - PFW (Gabriel)...

Charone Peake
12+
Clemson rSr 6020 209 5

Pro Day (Brandt) - "Peake, who has 8 1/2-inch hands and 34 7/8-inch arms, had a couple of drops in the positional workout. Other than that, he looked good at the wide receiver position.

Jordan Payton

He did the short shuttle in 4.2 seconds and the three-cone drill in 6.86 seconds. He performed 10 reps on the bench press. Braverman was second in the nation with 109 receptions in 2015, and then became an early entrant into the 2016 draft class. He is a likely priority free-agent pickup for a team following the draft."

KJ Maye

Minnesota Sr 5-8 194 6

D'haquille Williams

Auburn Sr 6-2 224 7-FA

Exploisve for a big dude but carries a reputation for poor practice habits and and off the field transgressions...Questionable body control...Gabriel (PFW) says he's one of the more talented receivers in this draft with "the natural tools to be great" but his off the field issues could get him drafted later than otherwise expected (Could be drafted high/could go undrafted)...

Pro Day (Brandt) - "Williams ran the 40-yard dash in 4.39 and 4.41 seconds. He had a 40 1/2-inch vertical jump and 10-foot-5 broad jump. He did the 20-yard short shuttle in 4.21 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.02 seconds. He also performed 11 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. Williams was described as looking pretty good catching the ball, and he has a chance to be selected in the 2016 NFL Draft."

Nelson Spruce
12+
Colorado rSr 6-1 205 7-FA

Solid slot guy who profiles as a reliable technician with limited physical skills..."At a stopwatch position, he isn't going to win many people over..." - PFW (Gabriel)...

Pro Day (Brandt) - "Spruce ran the 40 in 4.65 and 4.56 seconds. He did the short shuttle in 4.28 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.18 seconds. Spruce had a great positional workout. He really knows how to run routes and catch balls. As the Pac-12's all-time leader in career receptions, Spruce is an accomplished receiver. A concern with Spruce, however, is speed.

Moritz Boehringer
12+
Germany xx 6045 227 4+

((Ed Note: When Boehringer's name rose from obscurity yesterday in a post on the ROTB site, it occurred to me that - if I were to author an "inside the game" NFL novel and told this story about an unknown dude from Germany who shows up at a Florida-Atlantic Pro Day and breaks all the stop watches - every reputable publisher would throw me out the door because the story sounded totally unrealistic. Guess I was kind of wrong - you just don't make this sort of stuff up).

NFL.com: "...In a matter of hours, the wide receiver from Germany went from someone most outside the hardcore NFL scouting community had never heard of to a player some scouts now believe could be taken as high as the fourth round in the NFL draft.In a matter of hours, the wide receiver from Germany went from someone most outside the hardcore NFL scouting community had never heard of to a player some scouts now believe could be taken as high as the fourth round in the NFL draft.

Pro Day: N(FL.com): "Boehringer ran a 4.43-second 40-yard dash, had a vertical of 39 inches, a 10-foot-11 broad jump, a 4.10-second short shuttle, 11.15-second 60-yard shuttle, and a 6.65-second three-cone drill that had scouts on the ground doing double-takes at their stopwatches, shaking their heads, and laughing. He also had 17 lifts on the bench press. All of these marks would have landed inside the top five among all wide receivers who tested at the NFL Scouting Combine in February. And his 40, which was run on grass, is about the equivalent of a 4.39 on turf -- a time that would have tied for second among receivers at the combine.

In the field drills, Boehringer caught every pass thrown his way despite some adventurous tosses by the quarterback. Scouts were curious if he had ever faced press coverage so they asked a couple of the defensive backs there to press him at the line of scrimmage, and he had no problems releasing. At least two teams wanted to see his blocking techniques as a tight end. And when he was coached up, he was able to immediately make corrections.

"I came here today knowing what I needed to do," the ultra-quiet Boehringer said in perfect English after his pro day. "But I didn't realize there was going to be so many people watching me."

Utah State Sr 5-11 199 7-FA

Said to be a burner (but not at 4.58) who explodes off the snap. A number of character red-flags...According to Gabriel (PFW) speed, athleticism and over all body control are his strong points. Lacks ideal size and needs to get stronger
