Name: Donte Moncrief

School: Ole Miss

Height: 6’2”

Weight: 221

40-Yard Dash: 4.40

In a nutshell: Moncrief is a big, fast receiver who shows good field awareness but doesn’t play as big or as fast as he actually is. He also seems to either lose track of the ball or react too slowly to it at times. May still have his best football ahead of him.

Vs. #6 LSU: In a game where underdog Ole Miss shocked powerhouse LSU, Moncrief made some big catches for huge chunks of yards. His speed enabled him to gain separation and get behind the defense, helping him to a 21.4 yards-per-catch average and helping put Ole Miss in position to score several times.

Name: Jordan Matthews

School: Vanderbilt

Height: 6’3”

Weight: 212

40-Yard Dash: 4.46

In a nutshell: Matthews has the ability to make some very tough catches both in traffic and one-on-one with a defensive back in his face. With his height and length he can out-jump a defensive back making him a fantastic red zone target. Lacks explosion and will get jammed if he doesn’t have space to accelerate from the line.

Senior Bowl: Matthews played very physical immediately off the line, and showed an ability to knock a defender off balance with his initial contact. However, when he was going deep, he struggled to do the same and often had to try and force contact again later on in the route. That will be an issue in the NFL.

Player Analysis: Allen Robinson, WR, Penn State

Name: Allen Robinson

School: Penn State

Height: 6’2”

Weight: 220

40-Yard Dash: 4.60

In a nutshell: Robinson shows some real fluidity and acceleration for a big guy, and his deception burst makes him tough to cover going in and out of breaks. That said, his overall routes need work and sometimes tips defenders off to his direction. Robinson can lack focus at times as well.

Vs. Indiana: Robinson had one of his best games of the year against the Hoosiers, catching a dozen balls for 173 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Robinson’s first touchdown tied the game on a 46-yard touchdown pass. His second, early in the third quarter, gave Penn State its only lead of the day.

Player Analysis: Jarvis Landry, WR, LSU

Name: Jarvis Landry

School: LSU

Height: 5’11”

Weight: 205

40-Yard Dash: 4.77

In a nutshell: Landry needs to add some weight to his frame or he’ll get overpowered at the line in the NFL, especially since he lacks the explosion he needs to get past press coverage. Runs a very crisp route, and is willing to go across the middle. Landry also makes some spectacular catches.

Vs. #12 Texas A&M: Landry didn’t catch a ton of passes but when he did, he carved up the Aggie defense and was the target of both of quarterback Zach Mettenberger’s touchdown passes. Both were in the second quarter, the first a short 10-yard play and the second a longer 40-yard touchdown reception.

Player Analysis: Davante Adams, Fresno State

Name: Davante Adams

School: Fresno State

Height: 6’1”

Weight: 212

40-Yard Dash: 4.56

In a nutshell: Adams has a lengthy build which allows him to extend over defenders to make catches. He has good leaping ability and fantastic hands to make tough grabs. Adams gets hung up at the line too often and is too slow out of his breaks. Has a lot of upside, but raw.

Vs. #25 USC: Fresno State was overmatched, but Adams managed to have a great game anyway. He was most effective on shorter routes, though he managed to score on a 23-yard pass early in the third quarter. Overall, Adams was able to use his length and leaping ability to overcome the tough USC defense.

Player Analysis: Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Florida State

Name: Kelvin Benjamin

School: Florida State

Height: 6’5”

Weight: 240

40-Yard Dash: 4.61

In a nutshell: Benjamin is a giant-sized receiver who will loom over many defensive backs. A long strider, he gets up to speed quickly, though he lacks top-end speed. His strides allow him to gain separation he otherwise couldn’t because of his speed. His size and strength make him able to win the ball against defenders.

BCS National Championship: Benjamin performs when it counts, such as with his game-winning touchdown catch against Auburn. With 13 seconds left, Benjamin got into the end zone and forced his body between the ball and the defender. His quarterback threw it high and Benjamin extended to snatch it out of the air to win the game.

Player Analysis: David Fales, QB, San Jose State

Name: David Fales

School: San Jose State

Height:6’2”

Weight: 212

40-Yard Dash: 4.99

In a nutshell: Fales is a very average athlete with limited mobility out of the pocket and scattershot accuracy. While possessing many desirable intangibles—leadership, confidence, competitiveness—his actual game is very raw. Just a two-year starter, Fales is still learning to read defences, look off corners and overcome pressure. A project.

Senior Bowl: Fales did not have a great week of practices, and was reportedly sick on Monday and Tuesday. If that’s the case, it might explain the many floating and sailing passes we saw during those outings. He capped off a shaky week with an outstanding game though, completing 6-of-7 passes for 104 yards and a touchdown
