Rich Gunnell
Position: WR
Class: 5Sr
Conference: Atlantic Coast
HT: 5-11
WT: 196
40 Time: 4.59
Biography: Three-year starter who led Boston College in receiving the past two seasons. Senior totals included 60/880/7 after 49/511/for the prior year.

Positives: Productive, reliable college pass catcher with marginal size/speed numbers. Effectively uses his frame to shield away opponents, protects the pass, and extends to make the reception away from his body. Comes back to the ball out of breaks, offers the cornerback a nice target, and keeps the play in bounds, running after the reception, trying to pick up as much yardage as possible. Shows strength running after the reception. Relatively strong hands with the ability to pluck the ball from the air.

Negatives: One-speed receiver who lacks the second gear. Not smooth or fluid.

Analysis: Gunnell was a solid player for Boston College the past three years, yet he lacks top athleticism for the next level. He projects as a fifth receiver if he produces on special teams.

Projection: FA
