Niles Paul Scouting Report
Niles Paul
Niles Paul - Nebraska (HT: 6-0⅞ - WT: 224)
Combine 40: 4.51 - Pro Day 40: N/A - Position Rank: 14 of 60

Positives: Very strong lower body, reportedly squats over 500 pounds... Plays in the middle of the field, not afraid to take a hit... Good burst off the line of scrimmage, big frame and quickness make him a tough guy to jam... Very good blocker, always helping out teammates... Great leaping ability and body control in the air, makes a lot of acrobatic catches... Can return punts at the NFL level... Solid possession receiver who can be a good second option at the next level... High upside because of his lack of opportunity to show his talent at Nebraska.

Negatives: Has a tendency to drop some easy passes (see: Texas game from this year)... Has very small hands, measured in with 8⅞" hands at the combine... Inconsistent, will make an amazing play then miss an easy one... Has a difficult time getting separation in man coverage... Rounds off his routes too much... Suffered a broken foot in November, 2010... Doesn't get thrown to enough in Nebraska's run oriented offense... Has two alcohol related offenses... Undergoes lapses in concentration, not always focused on the football field... Has had problems securing the football, fumbles too much.
