MAC Ht., Wt.: 6'2, 217 40 Time: 4.68 Grade: 2.61
BIO: Former quarterback who had a breakout campaign last season posting 57/740/4. Caught 26/338/1 in ‘02 when he also had a limited role at quarterback.
POSITIVES: Big-bodied pass-catcher still learning the position. Fluid releasing off the line, uses the sidelines well and out-muscles opponents for the tough grab. Reacts well in a crowd and makes the difficult reception in traffic. Displays focus and mentally alert.
NEGATIVES: Not quick or fast and a poor route runner. Lacks the speed to break it deep.
ANALYSIS: Sparks has made major strides the past two seasons and is looking more like a legitimate receiver prospect for the NFL. Still needs time and repetition to improve his route running but could be a solid third-down receiver or red-zone target in the future.
