Michael Crabtree WR Texas Tech #5

Ht: 6'3
Wt: 214

Prototypical size for a number one receiver. Catches everything thrown his direction. Does an excellent job of catching the ball with his hands rather than his body. Excellent quickness and agility. Speed is adequate. Shows great body control A good kid; gets along with teammates and coaches (an underrated attribute for receivers these days).
Overall bulk is marginal. He'll need to learn how to match up against bigger, more physical cornerbacks in the NFL. Doesn't have breakaway speed. Doesn't play like he's 6'3"; needs to work on using his height to his advantage.
Crabtree put up impressive numbers in Texas Tech's pass-happy offense, but he appears to have what it takes to continue that success in a standard NFL offense. Some teams may be hesitant to consider a player from a system offense to be an elite prospect, but close examination of Crabtree on film shows that he has all the tools necessary to excel at the next level. He reminds me of a poor-mans Larry Fitzgerald - neither has exceptional speed, but they run crisp routes and will catch any ball thrown their way.
