Biography: Senior receiving totals included 21 receptions/133 yards/1 TD. Averaged 31.2 yards on 26 kick returns with two more scores last year. Led the team in receiving as a junior, posting 65/752/6 and to earn all-conference honors. All-American track and field athlete who holds several sprint records.
Positives: Smallish receiver rated primarily as return specialist for the next level. Extremely quick, easily makes the reception in stride and extends to make the catch away from his frame. Has a burst, beats defenders into the open field and can run to daylight. Gives effort blocking downfield.
Negatives: Easily brought down at the initial point of attack. Marginal route runner and best in a straight line.
Analysis: Ambrose is a champion sprinter who can take it all the way any time the ball is in his hands. He?s coming off a disappointing senior season at receiver, but his return skills and the ability to stretch the defense as a receiver will get him consideration on a practice squad this fall.
