2013 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Markus Wheaton, WR, Oregon State
Wheaton can stretch the field vertically and has experience as a track runner. Runs really strong routes and is crafty with his stop-start getting in and out of his cuts. Flexes and bends when manipulating his body to get after the football. Shines in the open field. Not as naturally elusive with the ball in his hands and should look to get small more often since he will open himself up to hits at times. Above-average hands and caught most of his passes within 10 yards of the line of scrimmage. Adjusts well to the football if off-target.
Lacks ideal size to get up after deep balls. Must continue to improve his explosion off the line and using hands when disengaging from press coverage. Could afford to add more bulk throughout his core. Small hands.
Wheaton projects as a third round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
