BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter who posted career-high numbers of 66/775/9 as a senior. Junior-year totals included 37/160/5.

POSITIVES: Tall possession wideout who took his game to another level last season. Plays with good body control, stays low exiting breaks, and displays good eye/hand coordination. Settles into the open spot of the defense, adjusts to the errant throw, and makes the difficult reception running laterally. Not afraid to go up in a crowd for the ball and catches the pass with his hands.

NEGATIVES: Lacks the second gear and downfield speed. Minimally productive until last season.

ANALYSIS: Wheelwright is a well-sized receiver who showed a lot of improvement the past 12 months. He could find his way onto a roster as a fifth wideout if he continues to progress.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
