Rueben Randle
Round 2, Pick 63
Position: WR
Class:  Jr
School: LSU
HT: 6'3"
WT: 207 lbs.
40 Time: 4.5
Conference: SEC
Biography: Two-year starter awarded all-conference honors as a junior with totals of 50 receptions/904 yards/8 touchdowns, with an average of 18.1 yards per reception. Sophomore totals included 33/544/3.

Positives: Tall, fluid receiver with a nice game. Quickly releases off the line into pass routes, is deceptively fast and gets down the field to make big plays. Sells pass routes, effectively uses his hands to get separation and comes back to the ball out of breaks. Displays good quickness, uses his frame to box out defenders or get vertical over opponents and pulls the ball from the air. Extends his hands to make the reception away from his frame and displays good eye/hand coordination. Exposes himself to the big hit and comes away with the ball in a crowd. Easily makes the deep reception in full stride and consistently catches the ball with his hands.

Negatives: Does not show much in the way of running after the catch skills. Slows into pass routes. Has lapses in concentration.

Analysis: Randle is a big-play receiver who watched his game take off the past two seasons. He offers the size, pass-catching skill and speed to develop into a No. 1 wideout at the next level. Randle comes with a lot of upside, and his next-level skills are underrated as we move toward the draft.

Projection: 1-2
