Draft Rewind 2006 - Marques Colston - New Orleans Saints

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about MARQUES COLSTON: Hofstra, 6045 224 4.50. Three-year starter. Competes for the ball in tight spots. A big target that can run. Good jumping ability to go up after the ball. Tall, physical receiver that is inconsistent to come off the ball quickly every time. A long strider. Did not look 4.50 in the forty in the Shrine practices. Picks up speed as he goes down the field. Not a nifty-footed receiver. Not sharp in and out of routes. Gets open with his size mismatch. Flashes some burst. Good hands. Long arms to go up and pluck the ball. Will go over the middle and make the tough catch. Can take a hit. More of a one-speed guy, but can run by you with his long strides. Good adjust to a bad ball. Runs through a tackle, but not a big run-after-catch receiver. Missed 2004 season after left shoulder surgery. Productive. Third/fourth round. (A-33 3/8, H-9 1/2, SS-4.44, VJ-37).
