Overview

Iglesias didn't get as much publicity as Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Sam Bradford, tight end Jermaine Gresham or even former Sooner wide receiver Malcolm Kelly, but all he did was lead Oklahoma in receptions (68 in 2007, 74 in 2008) and receiving yards (907, 1,150) the past two seasons.

He also scored 10 times as a senior en route to second-team All-Big 12 honors, which was a difficult task given the conference's prolific offenses. More solid than flashy, Iglesias' size, speed and ability to gain yards after the catch make him a natural for the West Coast Offense. His experience as a kick returner (876 yards in '07, 475 in '08) also adds value. Had an arm span of 31 inches and a hand span of 9 1/2 inches at the combine.

Analysis

Strengths

Positives: Good initial quickness off the snap to get into his route. Experienced route-runner who can generate separation from defenders due to his agility. Reliable hands. Can pluck the ball outside of his frame and quickly secures it. Tracks the ball well over either shoulder. Experienced as a punt and kick returner. Good vision and a naturally elusive runner with the ball in his hands. Not afraid to go over the middle. Will fight for extra yardage. Classic build, quickness and hands for the West Coast Offense. Better quickness than pure straight-line speed, but is elusive and has the burst to separate. Negatives: Questionable straight-line speed. Relies on his quickness and agility to create separation and may never become a classic deep threat. Has never operated as the go-to target while at Oklahoma, and has to prove he can handle the pressure of lining up opposite the opponent's best corner. Viewed by some as only a complementary receiver whose best NFL position might be as a slot receiver.
