Full Name: Kellen Winslow Jr School: Miami-Fl

Ht: 6-2 Wt: 249 40: 4.52 Number: 81

Bio:

2002: First-team All-Big East pick in his first season as the starter when he compiled the most productive receiving year ever by a Miami tight end, exceeding marks set by Glenn Dennison (54 for 594 in 1983) and Jeremy Shockey (7 TD catches in 2001). Led the team in receptions with 57 catches for 726 yards and eight touchdowns, averaging 12.7 yards per catch. Second on the team in receiving yards (726). Team's leading receiver in six games.

2001: One of four true freshmen to play and moved to tight end during the season after starting out as a wide receiver.

The Good: Tremendous athlete and a great football player that's a "chip off the old block". Fluid releasing off the line, runs like a receiver and an effective route runner that gets separation. Extends for the pass, displays great eye/hand coordination and looks the ball in. Possesses both soft and strong hands with the ability to pluck the ball from the air or make the tough, acrobatic catch in a crowd with regularity. Explosive and makes a lot of plays deep into the secondary. Runs well laterally, catches the pass in stride and effective running after the reception. Breaks down well and quick in all aspects.

The Bad: Slowed by jams at the line of scrimmage. Not strong at the point and has difficulty blocking linebackers, though that area of his game has improved.

The Skinny: Winslow, like his father, is indeed a rare specimen justifying the label a "special player". Linebackers cannot run with him and safety's will be over-powered by Winslow. Though he gets minimal results blocking it is not from lack of effort. Then again, to be truthful, anyone who drafts Winslow will not be doing so for his blocking prowess. A great player presently with an abundant amount of upside for the next level.
