Prospect Profile: Adrian McPherson

Adrian McPherson School: x-Florida State
Ht: 6-3.5 Wt: 218 40: 4.55 Year: 4Jr

Bio: Played with the Indiana Firebirds last season in the Arena League completing 59.9%/ 3,297/61/5. Dismissed from the FSU program in November of that year after being found guilty of forging and cashing a stolen check. Later brought up on misdemeanor charges of gambling, a trial which ended in a hung jury.

Positives: Naturally gifted athlete with an abundant amount of upside potential. Possesses a live arm, zips the outs or easily drives the ball downfield. Displays a good sense of timing, hits receivers in stride yet also puts touch on passes when necessary. Sized well and has the ability to make plays with his legs.

Negatives: Short arms his throwing motion and delivers the ball with a three-quarters delivery. Marginal experience playing against top competition on a regulation football field.

Analysis: A prospect with top athletic skills and football abilities, McPherson could end up as the steal in this year's draft. Seemingly overcame his off the field problems.
