Position: WR
Class:  Sr
School: Buffalo
HT: 6'2"
WT: 218 lbs.
40 Time: 4.54
Conference: MAC
Biography: Two-year starter awarded all-conference honors as a senior after posting 60 receptions/615 yards/2 TDs. Junior totals included 50/690/5.

Positives: Large possession receiver who's displayed improvement in his game the past three years. Comes back to the ball out of breaks, extends his hands and offers the quarterback an imposing target. Effectively adjusts to the errant throw, uses his frame to shield away defenders and protect the ball. Makes catches away from his frame and consistently looks the ball into his hands. Displays solid awareness, works to come free for his quarterback an almost always finds the open spot in the defense. Is an effective downfield blocker.

Negatives: Lacks the speed to get separation down the field. Did a lot of unnecessary body catching early in his career.

Analysis: After spending the first two years of his college career on the sidelines, Rivers blossomed into a solid starting receiver during his junior campaign. He offers the size and the ability to develop into a fifth receiver for a team that wants a bigger wideout.

Projection: FA
