BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter who began his college career at Minnesota. All-Conference selection after his senior and junior campaigns totaling 55/777/9 and 49/966/13 respectively.

POSITIVES: Large possession wideout with a lot of natural skill. Quickly gets off the line into routes, uses his frame as an advantage, and offers the quarterback an imposing target. Extends to make the reception away from his frame and effectively makes body-catches when necessary. Gets vertical in a crowd to out-muscle opponents for the difficult reception, while also showing the ability to catch the long throw in stride. Displays soft and strong hands. Effectively blocks downfield.

NEGATIVES: Cannot run to the deep throw and shows minimal vertical speed. Long-strider and displays minimal sharpness running routes.

ANALYSIS: Rucker is a physical receiver who stood out at a lower level of competition. He's been a tremendous red zone/third-down threat in college and offers the same possibilities at the next level.

PROJECTION: Middle Seventh Round
