Naaman Roosevelt Scouting Report
|Height & Weight:||6'0 - 191 lbs.|
2010 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Naaman Roosevelt, WR, Buffalo
Buffalo was known for its rushing attack thanks to James Starks, but the building process of the Bulls also included a dynamic receiver in Naaman Roosevelt. As a freshman, Roosevelt caught 31 passes for 429 yards and two touchdowns, but it was on a return where he really made his mark. He returned a bulk of kick-offs and punts for the Bulls and became the first player from Buffalo to return a kick-off for a touchdown since 1989. As a sophomore, Roosevelt continued to be a consistent returner, but also turned into the team's best receiving option by catching 63 passes for 766 yards and four scores. Roosevelt shattered the Bulls' record books in 2008. He caught 104 passes for 1,402 yards and 13 touchdowns -- all single season records at Buffalo. Through 11 games of the 2009 season, Roosevelt's numbers are not quite as impressive (mostly due to a new quarterback and the absence of a balanced attack because of the injury to Starks). However, Roosevelt still has 70 catches for 954 yards and nine touchdowns. Roosevelt does not have the size to be a number one receiver in the NFL; even listed at 6-0 and 191 pounds might be a little generous. What Roosevelt can be is a great slot receiver who has a ton of speed. A year or two in the weight room will help too, but he should be a decent mid-round selection.
