BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter who posted 55/812/5 as a senior after 56/832/4 the prior year. Returned kicks and punts in the past.
POSITIVES: Productive wideout who shows flashes of dominance. Solid athlete who makes the reception in stride running laterally, and extends to catch the pass away from his frame. Plays faster than his 40 time, gets vertical and high points the ball.
NEGATIVES: Poor route-runner who does not exit breaks with balance. Does not possess naturally soft hands, unnecessarily lets the ball get inside him and drops some catchable throws.
ANALYSIS: Possessing the size/speed numbers and versatility to be a fourth receiver in the NFL, Linson could get consideration in the late rounds. Must play consistently in camp this summer to have any chance of making a final roster.
