Draft Rewind 2004 - Larry Fitzgerald - Arizona Cardinals

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about LARRY FITZGERALD: Pittsburgh, 6030 225 4.49. Early entry. True sophomore who spent a year in prep school before college. Immediate impact collegian — followed a superb freshman year with an even better sophomore season. Shattered an NCAA record by catching a touchdown pass in 18 consecutive games — had the streak stopped in his final game. Biletnikoff and Walter Camp Award winner in ’03. Tall, sturdy, and strong. Has fairly long arms and large hands. Polished route runner. Sharp in his cuts. Does a good job of driving defenders off and coming back for the ball. Changes speeds well to set up defenders. Can accelerate deep. Has natural hands — extends aggressively for the ball. Acrobatic. Has a knack for making the tough catch in a crowd — shows great body control, concentration and timing. Makes the over-the-head catch smoothly. Adjusts to the ball behind him well. Not a dynamic runner after the catch, but he runs with strength and has good balance. Decent blocker. A legitimate blue chip prospect and a likely very high selection.
