Name: Keenan Howry School: Oregon Year: 4Sr
Ht: 5-9 Wt: 165 40: 4.56 Pos: WR
Bio: Three-year starter productive as both a receiver and punt returner. Caught 40 passes for 784 yards with 5 touchdowns as a senior, also averaging 14.3 yards on 32 punt returns, bringing two back into the end zone. All-Conference selection the prior season, finishing with 49/647/8 as a receiver and averaging 14.5 yards on 32 punt returns with another pair of scores. Sophomore totals were 49/647/8 as a pass catcher.
Pos: Diminutive receiver whose best shot is as a return specialist. Quick releasing off the line of scrimmage, sells his routes and beats defenders with double moves, getting separation. Catches the ball away from his body with solid technique. Concentrates, times receptions nicely and displays skill running in the open field. Comes back to the ball and works to make himself an available target for the quarterback. Elusive whether running after the catch or returning punts. Gives effort blocking for the running game.
Neg: Undersized and has great difficulty against larger defensive backs. Does not display the strong hands and has difficulty getting off the jam at the next level.
Analysis: As a receiver the fifth man on the depth chart at the next level, but his game-impacting skills as a return specialist make him hard to overlook.
