JERMAINE GRESHAM: Oklahoma, 6052 261 4.72. Productive two-and-a-half year starter that caught 66 passes for 950 yards and 14 touchdowns in 2008. Plays his best in big games with 8 catches for 82 yards in the Big 12 championship game along with 8 catches and two touchdowns in the BCS title game against Florida. A hand catcher that can catch the ball in traffic and in close quarters. Good upfield acceleration after catch. Can make the first tackler miss at times or run through them. Lines up in the slot, out wide, and in the traditional tight end area. Can make the tough over shoulder catch. Can separate in man to man coverage. Competitive player with explosiveness. Blocks with good balance. A knee bender that stays on blocks. Plays better against the best opponents. A match up nightmare for most safeties and nickel corners. Tore knee ligaments in camp before the 2009 season and did not play in any games. Good functional speed to run deep routes. Can split cover-two and go up after the ball. Good body control. More than a one speed player. Knows how to separate. Finds and sits down in the open area vs. zone coverage. OSR:5/13. First round. (A-34 3/4, H-9 5/8, BP-20, VJ-35).
