BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter who posted 35/483/4 as a senior when he played in eight games after a career-high 49/674/5 as a junior.
POSITIVES: Quick, elusive receiver with deceptive speed. Gets vertical to catch the ball at its highest point and adjusts in mid-air for the errant throw. Extends his hands, offers the quarterback a nice target, and plays with balance and body control. Shows a good degree of awareness on the field.
NEGATIVES: Gives marginal effort blocking. Does not always win out in battles or come away with the tough grab. Possesses just average hands.
ANALYSIS: Hayward is a prospect who's shown flashes of ability the past two seasons. He could make a practice squad if he pulls it all together this summer.
