Jeff Maehl
Position: WR
Class:  4Sr
School: Oregon
Conference: Pac-10
HT: 6-1
WT: 190
40 Time: 4.56
Biography: Three-year starter who led Oregon in receiving the past two seasons. All-Conference selection as a senior after career numbers of 77/1076/12. Junior totals included 53/696/6.

Positives: "Tough, productive receiver with marginal size/speed numbers. Fluid releasing off the line, finds the open spot in the seam and displays quickness running after the catch. Comes back to the ball out of breaks, extends his hands and a reliable receiver who catches the ball away from his frame. Lays out for the difficult grab, goes up in a crowd, and makes a lot of athletic receptions down the field. Nicely adjusts to the errant throw and keeps the play inbounds after the catch. Gives effort blocking downfield. Possesses strong and soft hands with the ability to pluck the ball from the air."

Negatives: Shows a marginal burst and is a one-speed receiver who cannot stretch the field vertically. Loses out in battles.

Analysis: "Maehl is a marginally athletic receiver who gets the most from his ability. He's not as big or fast as many of the receivers in this draft, but he plays smart football and gets every ounce from his skills. He'll be a definite candidate to be a fifth receiver on the NFL level."
