Biography: Former safety who moved to receiver as a junior and then started the next two seasons, winning All-Conference honors after both campaigns. Numbers last year included 60/777/1. Sat on the sidelines in 2008 due to health conditions. Junior totals included career total of 85/1183/9.
Positives: Outstanding possession receiver who makes some spectacular receptions on the field. Fluid releasing off the line, sells pass routes, and comes back to the ball out of breaks. Gets separation from opponents, running sharp routes, extends his hands and catches the pass away from his frame. Displays a sense of timing, eye/hand coordination, and gets vertical to highpoint the ball over defenders. Possesses both soft and strong hands. Stays focused, plucks the ball from the air, and makes the tough catch in a crowd.
Negatives: One-speed receiver who cannot beat defenders down the field. Lacks classic possession receiver size.
Analysis: Jurovich made the seamless transition to receiver as a junior and has all the qualities necessary to be a fifth wide out on an NFL roster.
