Round 2, Pick 58
Position: WR
Class:  4Jr
School: Maryland
Conference: Atlantic Coast
HT: 6-1
WT: 204
40 Time: 4.41
Biography: Saw extensive playing time with the starting team the past two seasons totaling 44/465/4 as a sophomore after he had 31/440 the prior year.

Positives: "Big possession receiver who has looked great at times the last two years. Effectively settles into the open area of the field, uses his frame to shield away opponents, and gets vertical to beat defenders on jump balls. Displays good eye/hand coordination, can pull the fastball from the air, and gives effort running after the catch. Reliable receiver who makes catches away from his body. Displays a sense of timing."

Negatives: Displays minimal quickness and speed. Poor route runner. Must pick up the intensity as a blocker and needs to get better results for such a large receiver.

Analysis: Gurley has been an adequate receiver in South Carolina's offense the past two years yet has an undeveloped game. He made a poor decision entering the draft and is likely to spend a year or two a team's practice squad developing his skills.

Projection: 2-3
