Conference: Atlantic Coast
40 Time: 4.51
Biography: Led Florida State in receiving as a senior, with career numbers of 61/729/3. Junior season included 15/183, when he started nine games.
Positives: Hard-working college pass catcher with no outstanding single skill to his game. Flashes soft hands, nicely adjusts to the errant throw, and reaches backwards to grab the ball from the air. Actively uses his frame to shield away opponents and protect the ball.
Negatives: Unnecessarily lets the pass inside him at times. Does not always come away with the difficult reception. Inconsistent on the college level.
Analysis: Owens showed flashes of ability last season and really improved his overall game. He possesses less than desirable size/speed numbers, yet he will have an opportunity to catch on as a fifth receiver.
