Prospect Profile: Jason Peebler

Jason Peebler School: U-Mass
Ht: 6-0 Wt: 215 40: 4.65 Year: 4Sr

Bio: Full-time starter the past two seasons, leading the team in receiving as a senior with 48/976/ 10. All-Conference and All-American as a junior after career numbers of 50/1,003/13.

Positives: Surehanded possession receiver who consistently finds the open spot in the defense. Defeats jams getting off the line of scrimmage, sells routes and looks the ball into his hands. Displays excellent focus, concentration and makes the difficult grab in a crowd. Adjusts to the errant throw then pulls the ball out of the air. Easily makes the reception in stride and always working to make himself an available target. Effective blocking downfield.

Negatives: Lacks foot speed and does not beat opponents down the field or stretch the defense. Marginal abilities running after the reception.

Analysis: A hard-working receiver who does the dirty work, Peebler has the size and consistency that entice coaches. A strong showing in camp could guarantee him a roster spot as a team's fifth receiver next season.
