Christian Pereira School: Maine
Ht: 6-3.5 Wt: 227 40: 4.68 Year: 5Sr
Bio: Three-year starter who's led Maine in
receiving every season since his sophomore
campaign. Finished his senior year with 58/818/
Positives: Tough, consistent pass catcher with a
good feel for the position. Finds the open spot in
the defense, extends and pulls the pass out of
the air. Consistently catches the ball away from
his frame. Gets vertical and adjusts in mid-air to
grab the errant throw.
Negatives: Lacks acceleration
and is not a deep threat. Slows into blocks and
does not give top effort.
Analysis: A big possession
receiver, Pereira combines reliable hands
with good size. Must turn up the intensity in
several aspects of the game yet, has an outside
shot as a fifth receiver in the NFL used as a red
zone or third-down weapon.
