Jeff Maehl - Oregon (HT: 6-0⅛ - WT: 181) Combine 40: N/A - Pro Day 40: N/A - Position Rank: 22 of 50
Positives: Decent height... Very good hands, catches everything... Fearless over the middle, makes all the tough plays... Good field awareness... Can get separation despite not being very fast... Crisp route runner... As a former safety, understands coverage schemes... Gets yards after the catch, does a nice job changing direction on the move... Willing blocker, does all of the little things... Flexible with good body control... Stepped up and put up one of his best performances of his career in the National Championship game... Solid possession receiver who should excel out of the slot... Moved to receiver in 2007 so still learning the position.
Negatives: Thin frame, will get crushed by linebackers in the NFL... Not very fast, has trouble running vertical routes... Below average burst off the line of scrimmage... Doesn't have a second gear and isn't an elite athlete... Limited potential because of his lack of raw physical talent... Has not contributed as a returner.
