NFL Draft: Film review of Rutgers WR Leonte Carroo

Breaking Burgundy analyst Paul Conner shares his scouting notes on Rutgers receiver Leonte Carroo

Breaking Burgundy's Film Analyst Paul Conner will be in the lab crunching film on college prospects up until the 2016 NFL Draft. He will be sharing his notes on each player he watches throughout the process. 

Leonte Carroo

Position: Wide Receiver

College: Rutgers

Height: 6'0"

Weight: 215

(Analysis of games vs. Michigan State, Ohio State, and Indiana)

Positives: Leonte Carroo is a thickly built receiver. Carroo posssess okay speed. He has a good set of hands to catch the ball away from his body. He has light enough feet that he is able to chop at the beginning and break of his routes. He is good with the ball after the catch in space or on screen passes. 

Concerns: Despite good hands, Carroo can rely on his body too much. He allows the ball to reach his body at times giving defenders a chance to knock the ball away. He will need refinement in his route running as he can tend to waste a few steps in the process. He is tightly wound. Carroo was suspended from team for an altercation with a woman but the charges were dropped. Hopefully, that is behind him. 

If drafted by Redskins: He's not quite as violent as a runner, but Carroo looks a little like Pierre Garcon on the field. He is able to catch the ball away from his body, can work underneath routes, occassionally burn you deep, and can earn yards after the catch. With the Redskins having a lot of money currently invested in their receiving core, they are going to have to find replacements sooner rather than later.
