Arkansas Razorbacks wide receiver Cobi Hamilton has ideal height to be a No. 1 receiver in the NFL. After a good senior season and strong Senior Bowl week of practices, he could move up into second round consideration.
Hamilton has a long frame and adequate speed. Played in a pro-style offense at Arkansas. Average route runner with raw potential. Must learn to chop feet in and out of breaks and explode when changing direction. Shields his body well when securing the ball. Great catching radius and can manipulate body control to put himself in position. Legit threat to score on fade routes in the red zone.
Needs improvement getting off the line. Can be jammed with limited resistance. Great with the ball in his hands and quickly transitions up the field. Long arms and can get up for 50/50 balls. Hands are average and will secure ball in his chest too often. Once he learns to reliably catch the ball with his fingers first, he can be a very good possession receiver.
In a watered down class for receivers, Hamilton projects as a late second to third round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
