Britt is a good
athlete and has sufficient quickness off the ball and in and out of
cuts. He changes directions well which helps him to be a crisp
route runner. Britt shows good coordination and balance and adjusts
to the ball well. Britt does not have blazing speed for a WR and
is not going to burn a whole lot of defenders deep on just speed.
Britt has been
(in terms of yards) the most productive receiver in Big East history,
but when it comes down to all the facets of the game Britt is inconsistent.
He struggles with his toughness in the blocking game and getting a release
from a jam. His concentration slides at times which causes him
to drop some fairly easy passes. Because of the concentration
problems I would have to grade him as inconsistent in the competitiveness
Britt is an intelligent
player; he does a very good job of recognizing when his QB is in trouble
and makes every effort to comeback to an opening. His concentration
is inconsistent which has led to a lot of dropped balls over the years.
Britt does a good job most of the time reading the zone but does struggle
at times trying to find the holes.
Britt is a big
target at 6'4� 215 he could be an excellent option in the red zone.
He has been a durable receiver who hasn't missed much playing time
at Rutgers. Britt has a lot of inconsistency in his explosiveness
and strength. He does a good job blocking CB's but struggles
with DS's and LB's. Britt has good quickness off the ball
but lacks the upper body strength to really fight through a jam and
get a clean release.

Solid off ball
with no jam
Good and quick
with no one in front of him
to fight through jam
Very good crisp
ADJUST TO BALL
Adjusts very well
to the ball, especially getting low with his height
Has no trouble
running over tacklers, but lacks speed to run away from defenders
Not a deep threat
yet, needs to develop jump ball skills and setting up defense because
he cannot run away from them
at times causes him to drop balls that should be caught
Good at swallowing
up corners but struggles with safeties and linebackers
Not fast or instinctive
running the ball/would not be good returner
slides at times causes him to drop passes that should be caught
Obviously, Britt's biggest asset
is his size; at 6'4� 215 he is an excellent target for a QB in the
red zone. He is also a good route runner and does a pretty decent
job of finding holes in a zone. Britt has excellent body control
and can get down well with low passes.
Britt, like I
said throughout the report has trouble maintaining concentration throughout
the game and it has caused him to drop some passes over the years.
His lack of concentration and strength has made him inconsistent in
a lot of categories such as blocking, release off of a jam, and his
hands. Britt also shows no breakaway speed and is not going to
run away from any NFL DB's.
Britt's size and production
in college is going to make NFL teams give him a serious look, especially
those teams that struggled in the red zone this past season. His
lack of concentration, strength, and speed are going to be a concern
for teams which is why he is not going to be drafted real high.
Britt struggles blocking bigger safeties and linebackers which is what
he is going to be asked to do in the NFL, because of his lack of speed
he is going to have to move inside and play a possession type role which
is going to have him matched up a lot with safeties and linebackers.
If Britt can strengthen up and improve on his focus throughout the game
he could be a seriously nice big target out of the slot position for

Individual Numerical Grade based on a 1-9 scale, 1 (not good enough for NFL) to 9 (rare quality).
The only trades I projected were ones that either already happened or ones that aren't motivated by draft picks. (Ex. I had the Pats getting an early second rounder for Jimmy G, but I won't have any trades where a team trades up only to select a player in the draft.
