40 Time:

BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter awarded All-Conference honors after his freshman and sophomore campaigns. Pass-catching totals last season were 72/1,090/10 after 70/1,143/13 the prior year.

POSITIVES: Fluid receiver with a lot of natural skill. Quickly releases off the line, consistently extends to make the reception away from his frame and beats opponents for the jump ball. Plays with terrific body control and balance.

NEGATIVES: Has a thin build, is not physically strong nor very aggressive. Lacks true downfield speed and a second gear.

ANALYSIS: A natural pass-catcher who has been ultra-productive in one of the nation.s toughest conferences, Rice offers a lot of skill and potential as a number one receiver. Needs to physically mature and improve his route-running, yet could be helped by proper coaching.

PROJECTION: Early Second Round
