Wide Receiver Film Notes: Senior Bowl

Juron Criner - Arizona

The following notes of note are snippets that were taken at live practices, practice tape and game tape. Ourlads NFL Scouting Services studied over 600 players from seven college all-star games. The Senior Bowl: TJ Graham (North Carolina State) – 5113, 182. Reminds us of a faster and quicker Jerricho Cotchery. Catches the ball and has a sudden upfield burst. Quick in and out of routes. Slippery with an effective stiff arm. Top level return specialist who is developing into a receiver. Dangerous in space. Has big play capability. Marvin Jones (California) – 6017, 198, hands 10”. Is a physical possession receiver. He gained separation with his route savvy and sneaky speed. He stood out on Monday when many receivers dropped balls, he snatched everything in sight. Can adjust to poorly thrown passes. Marvin McNutt (Iowa) – 6024, 216, hands 10 1/8”. Is a slot type possession receiver who can adjust to a poorly thrown ball. Dropped a touchdown pass in the game on a slant route and another vertical overhead pass in practice. He is a good route runner who knows how to get open. Had a good day of practice Tuesday snatching the ball in his hands. Devier Posey (Ohio State) – 6015, 209. A fluid and talented receiver with good body control. Smooth in and out of cuts. Has the speed to run deep. Extended for the ball over the middle in practice. Missed most of 2011 due to “Tattoogate” and his rust was apparent in the game, dropping a post route for a touchdown and giving up on a corner route. Brian Quick (Appalachian State) – 6034, 222, arms 33 ½”, wing span 81 1/8”. Started out the week a little inconsistent, but picked up his talent gradually through Saturday’s game. He made some good catches as well as few drops on Monday. Gerell Robinson (Arizona State) – 6031, 223, hands 10”. A possession receiver who is a long strider. Good field awareness to adjust to a quarterback’s scramble. Caught the ball well in practice and runs good routes for a big man. Joe Adams (Arkansas) – 5104, 174. An explosive receiver and return specialist with inconsistent hands. He did catch 8 passes good for 133 yards in the game. He also had a catch early and was stripped of the ball stopping a drive. A small make-you-miss elusive receiver with quick feet. Slippery in the open field. Adams took advantage of the rules in the game where the corners were not allowed up close to the line of scrimmage. Juron Criner (Arizona) – 6021, 220, hands 10 ½”. Physical receiver who looked sharp on a late drive in the game with his college quarterback Nick Foles. Demonstrated his ability as a clutch receiver with good body control. Finds the ball quickly in transition out of cut. Heard footsteps on a slant pattern on one play, then caught a slant and took a hit over the middle and held on to the ball. Can make the circus catch, double move a corner, and adjust well to a poorly thrown ball. He caught 6 passes for 77 yards and one touchdown in the game. Patrick Edwards (Houston) – 5087, 168. Pulled a hamstring and did not play in the game. A slot type receiver who struggled in Tuesday’s practice catching the ball. Flashed his ability to be quick in and out of his cuts. Jeff Fuller (Texas A&M) – 6041, 217, arms 34 1/8”, wing span 81”. Big catching radius. A talented enigma that may prove to be a draft bargain if he gets back to his junior year skill set. Had several drops during the week including some balls off his chest. May be pressing too much instead of just playing the game. Dwight Jones (North Carolina) – 6031, 226, arms 33 5/8”, wing span 80 5/8”. Is a big physical receiver who has good run after catch ability. Builds up speed as he goes down the field. Ran by Janoris Jenkins on a vertical route.

Marquis Maze - Alabama

Marquis Maze (Alabama) – 5076, 184. Runs precise routes and is an elusive punt returner. Weaves through traffic with quickness and agility. Quick in and out of his routes with a sudden upfield burst. A competitive receiver who will catch the ball in a crowd or lay out for a bad pass. A hand catcher who comes back to the ball. AJ Jenkins (Illinois) – 6002, 192. Added Thursday because of injuries. Quick in and out of his cuts. Can snatch the ball with his sudden and reactive hands. Played in the Shrine Game.
