BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter who posted 21/479/4 as a junior after career numbers of 52/694/6 prior year as a sophomore.
POSITIVES: "Reliable possession receiver coming off a poor campaign. Natural pass catcher who displays excellent focus, eye/hand coordination
and the ability to consistently make the difficult reception. Comes back into the clearing, extends his hand, and offers the
quarterback a big target. Lays out for the difficult reception, exposes himself to the big hit, and takes a pounding but holds
onto the throw."
NEGATIVES: Possesses marginal playing speed and not beating defenders in a foot race. Average route runner with limited quickness.
ANALYSIS: "For the most part, Hartline has been a reliable pass catcher who sacrifices his body to come away with the reception. He
comes off a poor junior campaign with minimal production, and he compounded the problem by entering the draft. Hartline is
a late- round choice, but he has the abilities to be a productive in the NFL as a fourth or fifth receiver."
