Tandon Doss

Tandon Doss scouting report

Tandon Doss WR Indiana
Ht: 6’2″

Wt: 200

Strengths:
Prototypical size and strength. Plays much faster than his timed speed. A tough player who isn’t afraid to go across the middle. Great hands; has big mitts that allows him to catch just about everything thrown his way. Capable of picking up some yards after the catch. Experienced on kick returns.
Weaknesses:
Doesn’t appear to like to block; gives a poor effort. Lacks the speed to stretch the field; may struggle against corners with elite speed. Missed time with knee injury in 2008. Also suffered a shoulder injur in 2008. Recovering from groin injury in 2010 offseason which has hindered his ability to work out for teams.
Comments:
Doss was a tremendously productive receiver in an underrated offense at Indiana. He shows all the physical attributes of an NFL starter except speed. If he continues to develop as a route runner, it’s possible that he’ll overcome his lack of speed and become one of the better steals in this year’s draft class.

NFL Draft Q & A

Earlier this afternoon I took some time to answer a few of your questions on twitter. A lot of them really deserve more than just four or five word response, so I thought I’d take an few minutes to elaborate…

It’s definitely possible that one or both could wind up in the top five, but I think they’ll ultimately fall a little further.

The Panthers aren’t taking a quarterback, despite some mock drafts linking them with Cam Newton. The Cardinals may consider it, but I think they’ll pass as well. Ken Whisenhunt really wants to bring in a veteran, and I think they will to appease Larry Fitzgerald as well.

That leaves the Bills. And after addressing their strongest position in the 1st round last year by taking C.J. Spiller, it’s anyone’s guess what they may do this time around. Newton and Gabbert are possibilities, but I think they’ll lean toward the best available player – A.J. Green or Patrick Peterson.
