Prospect Profile: Chris Denney

Full Name: Chris Denney School: Nebraska, Omaha Pos: WR

Ht: 6-3 Wt: 224 40: 4.68 Year: 5Sr

Bio: Former walk-on who moved into the starting lineup as a sophomore. All-Conference selection last season after 38/783/8.

Pos: King-sized receiver effective as a third-down or red-zone target. Boxes out opponents with his frame, displays good body control and effectively uses the sidelines. Extends to grab the pass, takes a big hit yet holds onto the ball. Consistently makes the difficult reception in contorted positions.

Neg: Does not have the speed to run to the long ball. Marginal route-runner and does not quickly get into breaks.

Analysis: A consistent, self-made receiver, Denney's size and natural hands are enticing. Solid developmental prospect who has a real opportunity at the next level.
