NFL Draft Scouting Report:Hank Baskett

Hank Baskett/WR/New Mexico

Full Name: Hank Baskett     School: New Mexico

Ht: 6-3    Wt: 219    40: 4.57    Yr: 5Sr

Pos: Consistent wide out with a complete game. Deceptively fast, stretches the defense and makes acrobatic receptions downfield. Fearless and exposes himself to the big hit in order to catch the ball. Works hard running after the reception, keeping the play in bounds and picking up as much yardage possible. Possesses soft, consistent hands with the ability to pull the errant throw from the air. Comes back to the ball and consistently works to make himself an available target. Displays an excellent sense of timing and anticipation, using his large frame to shield away opponents and protect the past. Solid blocker down field and strong at the point of attack. 

Neg: Does not run away from defenders in the open field. More a long strider who lacks first step quickness.

Analysis: A natural receiver with deceptive speed, Basket could be a gem at receiver in next April's draft. Presents himself as a potential number one wide out in the NFL and offers a lot of upside potential.
