2010 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Alric Arnett, WR, West Virginia

Alric Arnett has not had a long career in Morgantown with the Mountaineers of West Virginia, but it has been a relatively productive one. During 2005 and 2006, Arnett was playing receiver at a couple of junior colleges. In 2007 he sat out the season due to a thumb injury. In 2008, Arnett finally got his chance to hit the big stage. He started all 13 games that year and, while he was not the team's leader in receptions, he was the big play threat. On the year, he ended up with 35 catches for 466 yards and six touchdowns. That is an average of 13.3 yards per catch. Through ten games of the 2009 campaign, the numbers are pretty similar. Arnett is now averaging 14.1 yards per catch and has cemented himself as the team's big play receiver and main deep threat. While fellow starting receiver Jock Sanders will get a lot more catches, it is Arnett who is always a threat to take a score with every touch of the ball. Arnett's combination of size and speed is what makes him a decent NFL prospect. Most 6-2 receivers in college are not as fast as Arnett. While the speed is nice, he has to add some more weight or he will get beat at the line of scrimmage by stronger NFL corners. 2/21 Update: Arnett proved that he could be a deep threat at the next level during the East-West Shrine Game and the preceding workouts. Yet, he is not a receiver that has all the tools necessary to be a top selection (at least not at this point in his career). He will have the opportunity to move his stock up at the NFL Combine. If he fails to do so, he will probably be a fifth or sixth round selection.

Prediction: 7th Round

Arnett will get a shot with his speed and height but I don't see him doing anyhing with it.
