Matt Hazel, WR, Coastal Carolina: FCS Division

Round 6. Signed by the Vikings as a UDFA but was released in August. Was highly thought-of before the draft, and I expect him to find a place in the NFL.

All-Star Games: Shrine Game.

Positives: Above-average height and bulk. Adequate hand size. Good concentration and hands – extends well and can adjust well to off-target and tipped passes. Runs tough after the catch – can hold the ball with a big hit. Isn’t easy to bring down, and shows above-average balance after contact. Good acceleration after the catch. Above-average body control and can twist to catch off-target passes. Adequate track speed for his size and the position. Adequate upper body strength. Adequate vertical leap.

Negatives: Runs a little off-balance. Generally below-average lateral quickness, ability to change direction, and lower body explosiveness in Combine testing.

Projection: No need to draft him, but keep an eye on his playing time and feel free to pick up if he starts to get game reps. Could produce like a low WR2 if given the chance.
