The star of the Rutgers 2015 offense -- Leonte Carroo -- was solid last week at the NFL Combine but he needs a stronger performance March 9 at the Rutgers Pro Day to climb into the top tier of receiver prospects.
Carroo easily passes the film test as a massive deep-ball threat and consistent weapon for both Gary Nova and Chris Laviano. Carroo worked out with a solid performance in drills and adequate size at 6-foot, 211 pounds. His 4.50 40-yard dash time fell short of expectations, however he projects to run better next week from the friendly confines of Rutgers' indoor facilities.
Carroo brings off-the-field questions after multiple suspensions as a senior, and an injury history does not help. What does help, however, is a true Big Ten body of work. Carroo proved that his junior season was no fluke and finishes as one of the all-time Rutgers greats with 29 receiving touchdowns and 1,564 yards in two-and-a-half seasons on the field.
