BIOGRAPHY: Four-year starter awarded All-Conference and All-American honors throughout his college career. Senior receiving totals included 93/1,114/13, after 87/1,551/24 as a junior.
POSITIVES: Consistent pass-catcher was ultra-productive on a small school level. Quickly releases off the line, uses hand technique to avoid jams and plays with balance and body control. Adjusts to the errant throw, displaying top eye/hand coordination.
NEGATIVES: Lacks the speed and ability to run to the long throw. Average size and not a big, strong sturdy receiver.
ANALYSIS: Making a big impact since his freshman season, Ball has been a standout on the small-school level. While he offers natural receiving skills, he has neither the size nor speed to be anything other than a fourth wideout at the next level.
