Biography: All-conference selection as a senior after leading Ohio in receptions with 73 receptions/1144 yards/11 TDs. Played in three games as a junior before suffering a season-ending knee injury. All-conference selection and All-American in 2009 with receiving totals of 53/702/6 and an average of13.5 yards on 26 punt returns with 3 TDs.

Positives: Dependable, creative pass catcher who also impacts the game as a return specialist. Displays a sense of timing, possesses good eye/hand coordination and easily makes tough over-the-shoulder catches downfield. Comes back to the ball, finds the open space on the field and makes himself an available target. Extends his hands to make the reception away from his frame and shows skill running after the catch. Easily adjusts to grab the errant throw in stride. Possesses soft, reliable hands. Competitive and holds onto the ball when he takes a big hit. Follows blocks running after the catch and returning punts.

Negatives: Lacks a second gear and top-end speed. Has a prior knee injury which must be checked.

Analysis: Brazill was a terrific college receiver and also impacted the game returning punts, a pair of skills he'll take with him to next level. He offers the potential to be used in a variety of systems at the next level and the ability to eventually develop into a productive third receiver.

Projection: 7th
