Finding Broncos: Scouting German WR Moritz Boehringer

Next up fis a German receiver who is really flying under the radar. Many scouts are calling him the biggest sleeper in the draft. After some digging, our Draft Analyst Erick Trickel, found some game tape of this German receiver in order to bring you a scouting report.

Pros

  • The textbook H/W/S receiver (Height/Weight/Speed)
  • Excellent short area quickness and burst
  • Has excellent speed after the catch to breakaway
  • Takes on the middle of the field and willing to take hits
  • Can play to his size, smaller and bigger than he is as well.
  • Long arms
  • Tracks the ball in the air really well
  • Soft hands
  • Great at getting separation with quick cuts and acceleration.
  • So quick in and out of his breaks
  • Hands catcher
  • Eats up cushions given by defenders

Cons

  • Extremely raw
  • Competition level in the German leagues is taken as a high school level in America
  • Has to improve in everything he does
  • Long term project
  • Needs to get off the snap faster
  • Would have a rough adjustment to the size/speed/physicality of the NFL level
  • Short time playinng football
  • Would have to adjust to the NFL locker room

Overall Thoughts

There is a lot to like about the German receiver, but he is extremely raw. There is potential there, but it is going to take a lot of work to get to a level where he could have an impact.

I like this kid, but just not sure it is worth the time and effort to use a draft pick on him. He would be a good fit in Denver, who has the receiving corps that can afford them time to work on him.

Broncos Round Projection: Undrafted, Priority.

Where He Goes: Late 7th-Undrafted, priority.

Per sources: There is a lot to like, but the hype train on him needs to slow down. He is raw playing a competition level that most teams don’t even recognize.
