2012 NFL Combine: Weigh-In Recap - Wide Receivers

  • So much for the reports that South Carolina wide receiver Alshon Jeffery was pushing 250 pounds. At the 2012 NFL Combine, Jeffery checked in at 6-foot-3, 216-pounds, which is a significant drop compared to his listed measurements of 6-4 and 230 pounds. If Jeffery runs well, he could send a charge into his draft stock. At the very least from the weigh-in, Jeffery helped prove to teams that he is not lazy and takes his conditioning seriously. Jeffery (10 1/4) also tied for the second-largest hands of any receiver in Indianapolis.

  • Oklahoma State wide receiver Justin Blackmon (6-1, 207) was the same height as his listed measurement although he was eight pounds lighter. Blackmon made some news when he said he won't run the 40-yard dash because he pulled a hamstring in training. Blackmon's Pro Day is on March 9, so teams won't have to wait long to see Blackmon's 40 time.

  • A player who is expected to be one of the leaders in the 40-yard dash is Baylor wide receiver Kendall Wright. At the weigh-in, Wright (5-10, 196) was the same height and six pounds heavier than his listed measurements. Having the same height was helpful for Wright. One negative were his small hands (8 5/8). If Wright runs well, he can continue to push his way towards the top half of the first round.

  • Notre Dame wide receiver Michael Floyd had solid measurements at 6-foot-3, 220-pounds. Floyd is a solid receiver with quickness. His 40 time may not set the world on fire, but as long as the results are respectable, he shouldn't be downgraded.

  • The wide receiver who had the largest hands was Arizona's Juron Criner at 10 1/2. Criner (6-3, 224) had a strong week at the Senior Bowl that really improved his draft stock. If he runs well and continues with a solid Combine, he could go early on the second day of the 2012 NFL Draft.



  • An underrated wide receiver who had solid measurements was Iowa's Marvin McNutt. At 6-foot-3, 216-pounds, McNutt is put together well with some quickness. He also had a quality hand size (10 inches). McNutt may not have a fast 40-yard dash, but he is a well-balanced athlete who should be solid in the on-field drills.

  • Wake Forest wide receiver Chris Givens (5-11, 198) was a little shorter and lighter than expected. However, he is a speed receiver with adequate size to be a slot and deep threat weapon in the NFL.

  • An interesting prospect who has good size and rumors of special speed is Georgia Tech's wide receiver Stephen Hill. He was underutilized by the Yellow Jackets, as they favor their option running attack, though he showed some big play ability by averaging almost 30 yards per catch in 2011. If Hill (6-4, 215) runs a fast 40 time, he could see a nice boost in his stock.

  • North Carolina wide receiver Dwight Jones (6-3, 230) was the heaviest wide receiver at the Combine, weighing in four pounds heavier than a month ago. Jones had a disappointing Senior Bowl, so he needs to have a strong performance on the field Sunday. If he runs well, his weight won't be a problem, but if he has a slow 40 time, he could slide into the third day of the 2012 NFL Draft.

  • Surprisingly, the wide receiver who had the smallest hands was Michigan State's B.J. Cunningham at 8 1/8. Considering that Cunningham (6-1, 211) is not an undersized receiver, it was startling that his hands were smaller than the receivers who were sub 5-10 and 190 pounds.



  • The tallest wideout at the Combine was Miami's Tommy Streeter. He checked in at 6-foot-5, 219-pounds. The lanky Streeter made some big plays downfield last season. He is a long strider who could produce a quality 40 time.

  • Rutgers wide receiver Mohamed Sanu (6-2, 211) hit his targets from a height and weight perspective, but his hand size really stood out. Many receivers with similar heights and weights did not have hands as large as Sanu's (10 1/8). The average measurement for receivers was in the nine range.

  • Ryan Broyles (5-10, 192) is still recovering from his torn ACL and slight meniscus tear from early November. Broyles won't be able to work out at the Combine and is hoping to be able to hold a Pro Day in April to show his progress to NFL evaluators.

  • Another receiver who helped himself at the Senior Bowl was Cal's Marvin Jones. He tied for the second-largest hands of any receiver at the Combine (10 1/4). Jones (6-2, 199) is a bit of a sleeper prospect who could surprise at the next level.

  • The second-shortest wideout was Alabama's Marquis Maze at 5-foot-8, 186-pounds. He was just a tad smaller than Fresno State's Devon Wylie (5-9, 187). Both edge out Oregon State's James Rodgers (5-7, 184). Maze will probably be looked at more for special teams than as a contributor on offense. Wylie has a big history with injuries, so his physical was very important for him to show those injuries are healed.

    Wouldn't be surprised if Dwight Jones lasts until the 5th or 6th round or even goes undrafted. The kid is an absolute clown.

    Then was Blackmon ducking the 40 too like Alshon Jeffery? or does Jeffery not have a pro day like Blackmon?

    Jeff- I hate to break it to you but Danny Coale was not big time producer. A total of 2,700 yards is not a huge career. An example of real production is Kendall Wright totaling over 4,000 yards or Ryan Broyles with a total over 4,500. That is production.

    Wait...nevermind. Chicago Tribune is wrong, Walter is right. 4.61 for K. Wright.

    I think Kendall Wright ran a 4.42 and Jarius Wright ran a 4.61.

    Michael Floyd definitely exceeded expectations.

    Danny Coale is 2nd all time in Virginia Tech history for yards (almost 2,700 yards) and catches (165) He was very productive in college

    Right now I see both Sanu and McNutt as #2 Receivers. Neither are capable of breaking away from elite cornerbacks but good enough to be great contributors against #2's.

    Kendall Wright's slow 40 is a good indication of how meaningless the 40 really is when it comes to playing football. Wright was one of the fastest players in college football in pads, his combine performance won't change that.
