BIOGRAPHY: Junior-college transfer who started the past two seasons at Marshall, leading the team in receiving both campaigns. All-Conference selection as a senior after totaling 56/945/7. Junior totals included 45/260/5.

POSITIVES: Passmore has been very productive the past two years at Marshall, but he is a one- speed receiver with marginal upside for the next level. He has enough skill and ability to find his way onto a roster as a fourth or fifth receiver.

NEGATIVES: Lacks a quick release off the line and does not possess the second gear. Not a strong or sturdy receiver who can take a pounding. Loses out in battles.

ANALYSIS: Consistent pass catcher with soft hands. Displays quickness running routes, show sharpness into routes, and stays low on exit. Possesses good eye/hand coordination, and consistently extends his hands to make the reception away from his frame. Effortlessly makes the difficult over-the-shoulder reception, looking the ball into his hands. Comes back to the ball or finds the clearing in the defense to make himself an available target. Easily adjusts to the errant throw, and makes the reception in stride.

PROJECTION: 7th
