Allen Hurns, WR, Miami

Jaguars, UDFA. Enters a Jaguars WR corps as probably the sixth WR or lower, with little chance to overtake a group of fellow young receivers. Has enough athleticism to stick in the league for a bit, but will need to vastly improve his ball skills to do more than that.

All-Star Games: Shrine Game.

Positives: Above-average height. Adequate bulk and hand size. Above-average hands and extends well for passes away from his frame. Above-average speed. Tracks passes fairly well over inside shoulder. Very quick and nimble, and is dangerous after the catch. Slippery and often loses the first tackler, and has above-average balance making cuts. Adequate track speed for his size and the position. Adequate upper body strength.

Negatives: Below-average routes, and doesn’t always complete them – especially on comeback routes, where he needs to keep defenders from making a play on the ball. Also needs to learn to fight for the ball in the air on contested passes. Poor concentration with the ball in the air, either in traffic or on easy catches – will let the ball go through his hands. Below-average ball security and holds the ball very loosely in one hand. Below average vertical leap, general lower body explosiveness, lateral quickness, and ability to change directions in Combine testing.

Projection: No need to draft.
