Overview

Britt decided three years in Piscataway was enough after a junior season that saw him become the conference's all-time leading receiver (3,043 yards). The third-team Associated Press All-American and first-team All-Big East pick helped the Knights win seven consecutive games to end the 2008 season, concluding with the Papajohns.com Bowl win in which he made six catches for 119 yards and the go-ahead score. Despite a lack of straight-line speed and a history of dropped passes, Britt's size and toughness put him among the top receiver prospects in this draft. Had an arm span of 34 inches and a hand span of 9 inches at the combine.

Analysis

Strengths

Positives: Tall with a long frame. Lines up in the slot and outside. Surprisingly quick feet in and out of cuts. Good route-runner who finds seams against the zone. Reaches top speed quickly. Latches onto cornerbacks in run blocking. Strong runner after the catch, willing to bowl over corners and safeties to gain additional yards. Adjusts to low balls well. Makes most of his plays on crossing routes and is willing to give it up over the middle. Uses his body to shield defenders from the ball. Gives good effort blocking, using his long arms and feet to stay in front of a corner. Negatives: Lanky frame lacking strength in the upper body. Has difficulty sustaining blocks downfield against linebackers and safeties. Will need to learn how to use his hands to get off the line. Displayed very inconsistent hands during his career due to poor concentration and hand strength, leading to body-catching too many passes. Should make more plays on jump balls and down the sideline. Does not have the speed to separate after the catch. Not especially quick off the snap, and hasn't faced much press coverage due to his size.
