MIKE BUSH
Position: WR

School: Wash. St.
Conference: Pac-10
Ht., Wt.: 6'5, 198
40 Time: 4.72
Grade: 3.36

BIO: Two-year starter and caught 49 passes for 699 yards and six scores as a senior after 46-959-10 the prior year. Leading scorer on the school’s basketball team in 2000 and 2001.

POSITIVES: Big bodied, strong receiver who takes a pounding over the middle and holds onto the pass. Extends his hands catching the ball away from his frame and consistently makes the difficult grab in a crowd. Displays good eye-hand coordination, looks the pass in and effective running after the reception, breaking tackles and picking up positive yardage. Offers the QB a nice target and out jumps or out positions opponents.

NEGATIVES: Game lacks quickness and explosion, marginal route runners and does not play with great balance. Must pick up the intensity blocking.

ANALYSIS: Needs to do the little things well and refine his overall game. A little too thin to project to either H-back or tight end but potentially a nice sized possession wide out.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
