Junior Hemingway, WR, Michigan

Hemingway is a tenacious wide receiver prospect that needs to work on the finer details of football, whether it is route running or other fundamental issues. As a route runner, he runs hard, yet cannot stay crisp in his route. He has little to no explosion moving in and out of his cuts, which doesn't allow him to separate. Hemingway can beat defensive backs over the top with good speed.

Missed handful of games throughout his career and was granted a medical redshirt in 2008, which may signal red flags for coaches.

Hemingway has the size and strength to attack downfield. He elevates well and has enough body control to make the big play. Since Michigan hasn't played with a pro-style offense, Hemingway has limited experience running refined routes. The inverse of that issue is that he has a lot of work on blocking downfield and sealing the edge.

Ultimately, Hemingway is the type of player who will be drafted on Day 3, but has the potential to develop into a legitimate No. 2 receiver after what will amount to a "redshirt" rookie season.
