Scouting Report:
Jamaica Rector School: NW Missouri State
Ht: 5-9.5 Wt: 186 40: 4.52 Year: 4Sr

Bio: Moved into the starting lineup as a true freshman and awarded All-Conference honors the past three years. Posted career receiving numbers of 87/1,203/15 as a senior, also averaging 16.6 yards on 29 punt returns and 24 yards on 15 kick returns. Has never caught fewer than 61 passes during any single season in college.

Positives: Natural pass catcher with outstanding hands. Quickly gets off the line, separates from defenders and possesses soft-consistent hands. Lays out for the difficult reception, plucks the ball out of the air or gets vertical to snatch the high throw. Elusive running after the reception and dangerous returning punts. Plays smart football.

Negatives: Poor size/speed numbers. Not strong and struggles against physical corners. More quick than fast and does not stretch defenses. Dominated against small school talent.

Analysis: A solid football player with a variety of skills, Rector has potential as a slot receiver in the NFL, yet his bread and butter will be returning punts.
