2009 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Kenny Britt, WR, Rutgers

By the end of his freshman year, Kenny Britt was a staple of the Rutgers starting lineup. Despite only starting six games and playing in nine, Britt was second on the team with 440 receiving yards. By the 2007 campaign Britt was a huge part of the surprising Scarlet Knights offense. Britt was the big play receiver with Tiquan Underwood on the other side. Both players tallied over 1,000 yards, but it was Britt who led the way with 1,232 yards and eight touchdown receptions. The 2008 season is not going as well for Rutgers through five games, but Britt is the lone bright spot. Even without a big junior season in 2008, Britt is still a 6-4, 215 pound receiver that looks like an NFL player. His best asset is his ability to play physical. That gives him space to get open and makes him a very dangerous ball carrier after he makes the catch. Rutgers' woes in 2008 are keeping Britt off the national radar, but he could work his way into the second round if he opts to go pro after his junior season. He may not be as quick as players like Darrius Heyward-Bey of Maryland, but he is a similar player in that he has the size to make a big impact. If he falls to the third round, any team should be happy to have him. 10/26 Update: Rutgers may be off the national radar this year, but Britt made has made some noise. When the Scarlet Knights had a huge road win over a ranked Pittsburgh team 54-34 on October 25th, it was Britt who led the way. The 6-4 receiver caught five passes for 143 yards and three touchdowns (and all in the first half). Britt has been anything but consistent during the 2008 season, but he showed what he can do against what is usually a stout Pitt defense. 1/14 Update: Britt announced that he will enter the NFL Draft after his junior year. His size will impress any NFL scout and his production during his junior campaign was quite impressive as well. On a team that had an inconsistent offense, Britt still managed to make 87 catches for 1,371 yards and seven touchdowns. He will not likely be a first round selection (barring a great showing at the combine), but he is a solid second or third rounder. 3/24 Update: Britt's impressive showing at the NFL Combine and at the Rutgers' Pro Day has some thinking he could be the first Scarlet Knight taken in the first round of the NFL Draft. He might not be passing receivers like Michael Crabtree, Percy Harvin or Jeremy Maclin on most draft boards, but he is right up there with Hakeem Nicks and Darrius Heyward-Bey. If receivers start flying off the board towards the end of the first round, Britt could be who the Giants end up taking with the 29th overall pick.
