Draft Rewind 2008 - Mario Manningham - San Francisco 49ers

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about MARIO MANNINGHAM: Michigan, 5116 181 4.45. Junior entry. Two-year starter. Sudden in and out of cuts. Quick upfield burst. Demonstrates quick feet. Elusive after catch. Good adjust to the over shoulder deep ball. Will give ground after catch at times, then gets up the field. Big junior year with 72 catches, good for 1174 yards and 12 touchdowns. Can snatch and pluck the ball away from his body. Good route runner. Runs sharp cuts and is in and out of the breaks quickly. Consistent off the ball. Puts immediate pressure on the corner. Slips the holdup in press coverage. Gets into route and back on course quickly. Athletic after the catch. Productive with the ball in his hands. Controls his body when he goes up for the ball. Gains lateral separation. Holds the ball on contact. Slender build and consistent concentration is a concern. Good toughness and competitiveness. Combine workout was below average, but had a strong pro day. OSR:45/ 52. Second/third round. (A-32 1/8, H-9, SS-4.30, VJ-35). (originally drafted by NY Giants in 2008)
