Biography: Junior college transfer and part-time starter the past two seasons. Senior totals included 29/453/1 after 21/362/3 as a junior.
Positives: Underrated pass catcher with solid size/speed numbers. Fluid releasing off the line, uses good hand technique to get off jams, and fights hard to make the reception. Nicely adjusts to the errant throw, reaching back to make the difficult reception in stride. Good eye/hand coordination, keeps the play in bounds, and gives effort trying to pick up yardage after the catch.
Negatives: Has a thin build and may lose out in battles. Not polished and drops some catchable throws. Lacks the deep speed or second gear.
Analysis: Tucker has been effective receiver for Cal the past two seasons and offers the underlying skills to be a fifth wide out at the next level. He needs to polish his game and pick up the tempo of his productivity yet a solid developmental prospect.
