  • North Carolina

  • Hakeem Nicks' Scouting Report
    By Matt McGuire

    Strengths: Nice size and strength to beat press man coverage ... Refined route runner exploding out of his cuts ... Outstanding, soft hands ... High ability to focus when ball is in the air ... Knows how to shield corners ... Catches the ball away from his body ... Competitor and is clutch ... Solid downfield blocker ... Red zone threat ... Shows athleticism on jump balls ... Will go over the middle ... Nice instincts; shows intelligence to come back to the quarterback.

    Weaknesses: Not elusive in the open field and does not maximize YAC ... Does not generate separation with speed ... Not a deep threat ... Not much upside.

    Summary: Nicks reminds me a lot of Greg Jennings coming out of college, and we see what he has become in the league. Nicks is nothing more than a No. 2 receiver, but he shows enough qualities to where I would not consider his skill set to be particularly risky. Nicks is not going to be a stat demon in the NFL, but he can find a role and excel in the right system.

    Player Comparison: Jerricho Cotchery. Both players have pretty well-rounded games with similar physical builds and limited upside.
