BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter who totaled 42/563/4 as a senior. Suffered a season ending injury in the second game of the 2007 campaign
which required surgery to repair. All-Conference selection as a redshirt sophomore in 2006 after totaling 39/600/10.
POSITIVES: Casteel made a successful return from knee surgery last year, and he was a consistent receiver in the underneath coverage.
He lacks the great upside, yet he could find a spot on an NFL roster as a fifth receiver.
NEGATIVES: Does not possess the classic build for receiver. Marginal speed on the field and for the stopwatch.
ANALYSIS: Reliable pass catcher with a good feel for the position. Plays with good body control, effectively uses the sidelines, and
lays out for the difficult reception. Keeps the play in bounds after the catch, trying to pick up as much yardage as possible.
Comes back to the ball or follows the quarterback across the field to make himself an available target. Extends his hands
and consistently makes the catch away from his frame.
