Michael Campanaro, WR, Wake Forest

Ravens, Round 7. Enters WR corps as probably the fourth-best guy, but I think he has the athleticism and hands to be able to develop into a solid slot or outside receiver.

All-Star Games: Senior Bowl.

Positives: Adequate bulk for his height. Above-average hand size. Above-average speed and good acceleration. Very quick feet and uses his quickness to get away from press coverage at the line. Though still inexperienced at running routes, he is very crisp in his breaks and should develop. Above-average balance after contact. Nimble on the sidelines and gets upfield quickly catches on the sidelines. Seems fairly strong and can fight off physical cornerbacks. Above-average downfield blocker. Above-average hands and can extend well and consistently. Tracks passes fairly well over is inside shoulder. Above-average hand size. Good upper body strength. Good vertical leap in general lower body explosiveness in Combine drills. Above-average lateral quickness and ability to change directions in Combine drills.

Negatives: Short for the position, with a short wingspan. Inexperienced as a route runner. Has significant durability issues. Broke his right hand in late September 2012 and missed two games. Has also had hamstring issues. Broke his collarbone in October 2013 and missed the rest of season.

Projection: Feel free to use a 4th-round  dynasty draft choice on him, but don’t expect numbers right away. WR3 numbers might be his ceiling.
