College: Ole Miss Position: Wide Receiver Height: 6’2″ Weight: 221 2013 College Statistics: 59 receptions, 938 yards, six touchdowns. The 2014 NFL Draft is full of talented players, and one of those prospects is Ole Miss wide receiver Donte Moncrief. Moncrief doesn’t have the most impressive statistical numbers out there, but the impact that he has the potential to make on the football field is undeniable. As always, there are some concerns surrounding him, but they aren’t things that can’t be fixed with good coaching and time. Most draft analysts have Moncrief being selected in the second or third round. Strengths Very experienced route runner Has lined up at both the wide and slot positions Strong after the catch and picks up extra yardage Quick enough to make an occasional defender miss in open field Strong blocker Does a very good job tracking the football Extremely quick acceleration Weaknesses Great workout numbers, but doesn’t always translate to on-field play Wasn’t great at working on timing with QB in college Lacks focus on ball when in tight coverage Often catches ball with chest rather than hands Body control can be poor at times Overall, there are certainly a lot of question marks surrounding Moncrief’s game. He has the potential to become a very good every down wide receiver in the NFL, but he will need to put in a lot of work to get there. There is no denying the work ethic that he has, but he will have to take that to the next level if he intends to reach his full potential. His size will certainly give him an advantage at the next level, but there will be a lot of work to be done on the rest of his game. All that being said, he will be a good selection for any team that decides to take a chance on him in the third or fourth round.
