year round NFL draft coverage... for the real fan

Eric Page scouting report

Eric Page WR Toldeo #12
Ht: 5’9″

Wt: 186

Explosive after the catch; dangerous runner with the ball in his hands. Has great vision as a runner. Does a nice job adjusting to the ball; shows great body control. Excellent route runner; makes up for his lack of elite speed by running crisp routes and taking advantage of defensive backs missteps. Extremely quick feel; very quick in his cuts, and can shake faster corners if they don’t give him enough space. Fairly reliable hands; good technique, catches away from his body and secures it quickly. Experienced and extremely productive returning kicks/punts. Very smart player on and off the field. Coaches speak very highly of him.
Takes a few steps longer to get up to full speed than the average receiver, and may not be a significant deep threat at the next level as a result. Will drop some passes he shouldn’t, likely a result of his relatively small hands because his technique is excellent. Undersized; will never be a prototypical No. 1 receiver. Level of competition is a concern.
Page is limited by his size and modest speed, but he makes up for it by being extremely technically sound and doing all the little things well. He reminds me of Wes Welker in many ways. Like Welker, he’ll never beat someone with pure speed, but he can shake defenders with his quick moves and is a lethal threat after the catch due to his vision and toughness as a runner. He will likely fall to Day 3, but will be a steal for someone in the 4th round or beyond.
