 Joshua Tinch Grade: 3.28
 Position: WR
 Class: 4Sr
 School: Louisville
 Conference: Conference USA
 Ht., Wt.: 6-2, 225
 40 Time: 4.61

BIO: All-Conference selection as a senior after a breakout campaign of 67/855/4. Saw significant action with the first unit the previous three seasons, averaging 32 receptions per year.

POSITIVES: King-sized pass catcher who plays to his size. Effective in the underneath coverage and extends to make the difficult reception in a crowd. Adjusts nicely to the errant throw, uses his frame to protect the pass and has solid hands. Strong running after the reception, and picks up the tough yardage. Gives effort blocking and gets results.

NEGATIVES: Marginal playing speed and cannot stretch the defense. Slow entering breaks and not quick upon exit.

ANALYSIS: Becoming the go-to guy at Louisville last season, Tinch turned himself into a legitimate first-day candidate in April's draft. Possible No. 2 wideout at the next level and a terrific red-zone target.

PROJECTION: Mid Seventh Round
