Prospect Profile: Steve Suter

Steve Suter School: Maryland
Ht: 5-9 Wt: 195 40: 4.51 Year: 5Sr

Bio: Part-time starter at receiver the past three years, primarily used a special teams player. Caught 23/270 in '04, also averaging 24.1 yards on 15 kick returns. All-Conference special teams player as a junior after a 23.4 yard average on kick returns.

Positives: Athletic skill player who flashes ability handling the ball. Goes over the middle, looks to pass into his hands and shields opponents away from the play. Possesses strong hands and very quick transitioning from making the reception to running after the catch. Finds the soft spot in the defense. Elusive and slippery running with the ball. Displays focus and timing as both a receiver and returner.

Negatives: Lacks the pure breakaway speed. Does not stretch the defense as a receiver or run away from opponents as a return specialist.

Analysis: An under-sized pass catcher by collegiate standards, Suter must make his mark in the NFL as a kick return specialist.
