DeMarco Sampson
Round 7, Pick 249
Position: WR
Class:  6Sr
Conference: Mountain West
HT: 6-2
WT: 204
40 Time: 4.40
Biography: Two-year starter awarded all-Conference honors the past two years. Senior totals included 67/1220/8 after 62/851/8 as a junior.

Positives: "Big-bodied possession receiver with reliable hands. Quickly releases off the line, displays strong hands, and has the ability to snatch the ball from the air. Nicely adjusts to the errant throw, looks the pass in, and displays good eye/hand coordination. Easily makes the reception without breaking stride and consistently catches the ball away from his frame. Sells routes, shows quickness into breaks, and stays low on exit. Keeps his focus throughout the action. Gives effort blocking and gets results."

Negatives: Not a consistent downfield threat and is more of a one-speed receiver despite his forty time.

Analysis: "Sampson has displayed a lot of skill the past two years and could be a solid 4th receiver. Underrated to this point, Sampson could contribute as a rookie."

Projection: 5-6
