Overview

Page is an early-entry junior out of Toledo who is an intriguing prospect given that he flew under the radar throughout his career. He is a very polished receiver on film who won't make any NFL teams purely off athletic ability, but it's obvious in his play that he understands the game and what it takes to succeed at the position. At a meager 5-foot-10 and 185 pounds, Page doesn't possess elite speed or quickness, but he draws value from his savvy working in the slot to be a dependable option for the quarterback. He would fill in nicely in a West Coast offense and could pressure for playing time in sub packages. He has value as a returner as well and could be selected in the fifth or sixth round.

Analysis

Strengths

Page plays faster than he will likely time, and he has a sense of urgency about him on the field. He is a smooth runner who can snap in and out of his breaks to gain separation, and he is a superb worker of speed cuts in the short passing game. Page employs many tactics that veteran undersized receivers use to gain separation against bigger, faster athletes -- by stemming his routes off the line, varying his speeds in-phase and showing just enough of a wiggle to keep a corner off him and gain separation. He can set up defenders in close areas to either subtly avoid or juke them, and he utilizes his field awareness and natural body control to get the necessary yards after the catch. Page has the skill set of a slower, more polished Eric Weems.

Weaknesses

Page is not a very fast receiver and doesn't display many athletic traits that would separate himself from the next receiver in a camp. He can lose focus at times and will need to learn that catching the ball across the middle in tight areas will be a key component of his ability to contribute.
