Jeff Maehl scouting report

Jeff Maehl WR Oregon
Ht: 6’1″

Wt: 190

Strengths:
Great hands. A solid, fundamental player. Capable of making things happen after the catch. Elite quickness makes up for his lack of straight-line speed. A very solid route runner. Productive college player who showed improvement throughout his career. Willing to go across the middle and make tough catches in traffic.
Weaknesses:
Lacks the speed to stretch the field. Limited upside. Needs to improve his blocking skills. Would benefit from bulking up, making him a more formidable possession receiver.
Comments:
Maehl began his career as a defensive back but was quickly converted to receiver, which he also played in high school, and quickly developed into their most reliable receiver. He isn’t flashy and will never be a No. 1 receiver but he’s a safe bet to become a reliable contributor. He’s a low ceiling/high floor player who would make a safe 3rd or 4th round selection.
