2009 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Brian Hartline, WR, Ohio State

Like teammate Donald Washington, Brian Hartline's decision to enter the NFL Draft was a little unexpected. Hartline is talented, but never really got to display his skills because of quality receivers playing ahead of him and quarterback issues this season. For his career, Hartline has caught just 90 passes for 1429 yards -- an average of 15.9 yards per catch. He has caught 12 touchdowns in his limited time and even averaged 11.4 yards per punt return, with a return touchdown during his sophomore season. Hartline doesn't have great top end speed, but gets to his full speed quickly. He moves well in short areas and has the awareness to get open against zone coverage. Hartline is also a very willing and capable run blocker. Because he's had so little playing time to evaluate, Hartline may be a difficult prospect for many teams to scout. He is an improving route runner and attacks the ball well while it's in the air. He has the size and athleticism to make plays over smaller defensive backs and win jump balls. Hartline is likely to be a late round pick, but could develop into a Joe Jurevicius or Brian Finneran type possession receiver. Brian Hartline ran a very solid 4.49 second 40 yard dash at his Pro Day workout. He also showed very solid hands during position drills. He is still a late round prospect due to his lack of college production, but a team may take a chance on Hartline in rounds five or six.
