Maclin Jeremy Missouri WR 6.7
Last Name First Name College Position Final Grade
6'1" 200 4.45
Height Weight 40 Time
Q.A.B 7.5

Quick Feet 7.5

C.O.D 7.5

Flexibility 7.5

Coordination 7.5

Maclin is an excellent athlete; he changes direction quickly, has great speed, and agility that makes him very elusive in the open field. Maclin's balance and coordination help him to adjust to the ball very easily. He is a gifted athlete and has big play ability from the pass game as well as in the return game.
Toughness 6.5

Clutch Play 6.5

Production 7.0

Consistency 6.0

Team Player 6.5

Pride/Quit 7.0

Maclin is tough; he came back from a very bad knee injury prior to his true freshman season to have back to back remarkable seasons. His production has been outstanding and he is a consistent game changer from multiple areas on the field (running, receiving, returning). Maclin is a team player in the fact that he does so many things on the field to help his team win and not just with the ball; he is a physical blocker downfield.
Learn/Retain 6.5

Inst/Reaction 7.0

Concentration 5.5

Maclin is a smart player and doesn't show any problems with finding the seams and holes in a zone. He has great instincts and reacts quickly to the defense allowing him to score from just about anywhere on the field. Maclin's concentration has lacked at times where he looks up before making the catch which causes him to have some drops that he shouldn't have.
Body Type 6.0

Durability 6.0

Explosion 6.5

Play Strength 6.5

Maclin has good size for a receiver; however I wish he was a bit taller. Even being a little bit smaller Maclin has no fear catching the ball in traffic over the middle and is an aggressive blocker downfield. When Maclin finds a crease whether it's after a catch, on a reverse, or returning a punt or kick he explodes into another gear to get into the open field, does need to be more explosive out of his breaks on routes.

7.0 FUMBLE/ERRORS Doesn't make many mistakes other than looking to make play before securing the ball sometimes
Maclin has proven himself as a tough player by coming back from the knee injury he suffered prior to his freshman season. He plays physical and much stronger than his size would lead on. Maclin's athleticism and speed are his biggest assets with him being able to score from just about anywhere on the field. There is not much weakness to his game other than questions about his knee and his burst out of his cuts when running routes. He needs to work on being a precise route runner and exploding out of the breaks.
Maclin is an excellent athlete at the WR position who I think can truly be a No. 2 receiver almost immediately. His speed, hands, and physical style gives him a chance to make an impact right away. Some might say his numbers are inflated because of Missouri's offense and they may be right, but to me with Maclin I don't think it matters what system he is in he can make plays. He is an excellent returner and will make an impact on a team right away returning kicks. Maclin needs to get to training camp looking to improve on some of the basics of being a WR, route running for one, and if he does he could make a real impact next season.
