2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Jeff Maehl, WR, Oregon

Back in 2007 Jeff Maehl had a long road before finding his niche on Oregon's team. He started the year as a reserve player in the secondary. Then he spent most of his time on special teams. Eventually he turned into a wide receiver and started at that spot for the last three games of the year. Maehl only caught nine passes for 118 yards and a touchdown as a freshman, but he certainly found his spot on the team. In 2008 Maehl stepped into a larger role and caught 39 passes for 421 yards and five scores.

Maehl played a bigger role in 2009 and ended up catching 53 passes for 696 yards and six touchdowns. The 2010 season was a big one for Maehl and the Ducks. En route to the BCS National Championship game, Maehl turned into a superstar. On the year he led the Ducks with 77 receptions for 1,076 yards and a dozen touchdowns.

Maehl certainly got plenty of recognition in 2010, but that did not make him a valuable NFL prospect. However, he started to change that perception at the NFL combine. He is still a little undersized at 6-1 and 190 pounds, but he proved to be a superb athlete. Maehl is not fast, but he is quick and did a great job in the three-cone drill, 60-yard shuffle and 20-yard shuffle. He will not blow by most opposing cornerbacks, but he can make them miss with his great ability to run routes and that should get him drafted in the middle to late rounds.
