Overview

Hogan was barely a blip on the recruiting radar coming out of Warren High School in Ohio, but he had more catches and yards in his freshman season at Walsh University (32,393) than he did as a high school senior (20-216). Hogan then transferred to Marian, where he exploded on the NAIA scene with 82 receptions for 1,136 yards and 11 touchdowns. He earned the first of three first-team Mideast League honors that year, repeating the feat in 2015 (101-1,824, 16 TD receiving; 39-130, 15 TD rushing). The American Football Coaches Association named him a first-team All-American in his senior year (80-1,435 yards, 15 TD receiving; 23-43, 10 TD rushing; pass TD); he was also his conference's Offensive Player of the Year.

Analysis

Strengths

Very good size with athletic, muscular build. Touchdown juggernaut with 56 over the last two seasons alone. Good concentration when tracking the deep ball. Has long arms and big hands for extended catch radius and can adjust to throws behind his frame. Lauded for competitive mental makeup and work ethic in the offseason. Good athletic ability after the catch. Used near the goal line in direct-snap plays.

Weaknesses

Overwhelmed inferior level of competition on lower level. Will have to prove at the combine that he has the deep speed to gain vertical separation. Will need to polish route work for improved separation against NFL talent. Allows deep balls to come to him rather than consistently leaping and high-pointing.

Bottom Line

Big, dominant target who overwhelmed his level of competition on a regular basis for three seasons at Marian. Touchdowns and production have come easy for Hogan, but life in an NFL camp will be a substantial leap forward in competition that may take some time to adjust to. While he has NFL size, he needs to prove he also possesses NFL speed and/or quickness to uncover and produce.
