BIO: Three-year starter awarded varying degrees of All-Conference honors since his sophomore campaign and All-American honors last year. Posted 52/685/5 receiving as a junior while averaging 15.3 yards on 19 punt returns and 30.3 yards on 17 kick returns, with two more scores. Sophomore receiving totals were 61/836/7.
POSITIVES: Natural pass catcher who impacts the game as a return specialist. Effective as a slot receiver, finds the seam in the middle of the field and adjusts to grab the errant throw. Quickly transitions to running after the reception, follows blocks in the open field and keeps the play in bounds. Comes back to the quarterback and displays a sense of timing.
NEGATIVES: Lacks the speed to separate from defenders down field. Lacks playing strength and loses out in battles. Benefited from a system which lined up five receivers.
ANALYSIS: Productive the past three seasons, Rodgers is a college favorite with marginal size/speed numbers. Best as a slot receiver and must produce returning punts and kicks.
