BIO: Record-setting wide receiver who finished his senior campaign catching 69/1,013/9 after 71/1,029/5 the prior season. Owns the USC career receptions record with 207.

POSITIVES: Sure-handed receiver that always comes away with the reception. Fluid releasing off the line of scrimmage, runs effective routes and comes back to the ball out of breaks, giving his quarterback a nice target. Shields opponents with his frame or gets vertical in a crowd for the high pass. Alert on the football field and refined in all his techniques. Tracks the deep pass and easily adjusts to the throw running full tilt. Works hard running and a solid blocker at the line of scrimmage or down the field.

NEGATIVES: Not a speedy wide out that beats opponents down the field. Also lacks the top size to be considered a true possession receiver.

ANALYSIS: Known as a high-character prospect and competitive player, Colbert is the perfect complementary receiver at the next level that could easily fill the duties of a number two wide out. His sense for the game and toughness on the field should have him selected late in the draft's first day.
