James Rodgers Scouting Report
|School:||Oregon State Beavers|
|Height & Weight:||5'7 - 188 lbs.|
2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
James Rodgers, WR, Oregon State
At 5-7 and 188 pounds, Rodgers will never be any more than a slot receiver, but he has a lot of value at that position. Adding to his value is his ability to return kicks. Prior to the 2010 campaign, he was already OSU's all-time leader in all-purpose yards and was second among active players. However, Rodgers' senior season was cut short due to a knee injury and he will not return this season.
The injury raises some questions. He could apply for a medical hardship and would likely be able to return to Oregon State for another go at his senior season. If his brother returns to school, that would give the Beavers a great offense and a shot at a Pac-10 title. However, Rodgers' ability to return kicks may make his stock too high to pass up. Yet, he has to get healthy before April or he would probably be a mid-round selection.
