Prospect Profile: Christian Pereira

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/ 10.

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.
