Draft Rewind 2009 - Mike Wallace - Pittsburgh Steelers

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about MIKE WALLACE: Mississippi, 6003 199 4.30. Three-year starter. Rare speed and athletic ability. No hold up in press coverage. Catches the ball in his hands, but will cradle the ball as needed. Gains separation on his break out of cuts. Slender build. Raw in every phase of his game but has speed and quickness to give him a chance. When played in off coverage, he quickly eats up the cushion. Can make the overhead catch over either shoulder down the field. Averaged over 10 yards per carry on nine reverses. Will contribute as a kickoff return specialist. Has two returns for touchdowns in career. Has a third gear burst to run away from tacklers. Quick feet to beat bump coverage. Can avoid and show a burst to get upfield and separate. Has decent flexibility in his hips and knee bend. Has the ability to jump over a defender. An ascending player with Sunday type tools. OSR:4/38. Third/fourth round. (A-31 3/8, H-9, VJ-40, SS-4.30).
