Jeff Maehl scouting report

Jeff Maehl WR Oregon
Ht: 6’1″

Wt: 190

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.
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.
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.
