Biography: Rotated in and out of the lineup the past three seasons. Senior totals included 15/192/1 after a career best of 54/579/3 as a junior. Father is former Oakland Raiders first-round pick Jesse Hester.
Positives: Solid pass catcher coming off a disappointing senior campaign. Smooth receiver who displays good awareness on the field and consistently makes the difficult catch in a crowd. Adjusts to the errant throw, uses his frame to shield away defenders, and makes the reception in stride. Takes the big hit and then holds onto the throw.
Negatives: Lacks speed and the ability to stretch the defense. Struggled seeing playing time as a senior.
Analysis: Hester lacks great size/speed numbers yet has good bloodlines and showed flashes of ability in the past. He has the skills to make it as a fifth receiver if he steps up his play and get his game back on track this summer.
