Maclin WR Missouri #9
|Ideal size for an NFL receiver.
Elite speed - a threat to take it the distance every time the ball is in his hands.
Has experience on punt and kick returns. Excellent quickness and agility, has
the ability to make defenders miss and pick up extra yardage after the catch.
Intangibles are top notch; you don't have to worry about him becoming the next
|Tends to catch the ball with his
body too often. Doesn't use his size to his advantage at all; he might as well
be 5'10/180 because he avoids contact and plays the way you expect a return specialist
to play. |
|Maclin certainly has
the ability to be a playmaker, but he'll need to learn to use his size to his
advantage. He reminds me of former 49ers receiver Rashaun Woods. Woods was a tremendously
productive college receiver who had the size to excel in the NFL, but speed was
his greatest asset and he never learned how to adjust to NFL game where the players
are faster and stronger than in the Big 12. |
