Overview

Don't sleep on this Division III star from the Purple Raiders. Last year the St. Louis Rams took a shot in the seventh round on another D3 prospect in Wisconsin-Whitewater's Derek Stanley, and there's no reason to believe someone won't like Garcon just as much. Garcon's not quite as quick as Stanley, but is a better all-around receiver with better size and more than adequate speed. He averaged 62 catches, 1,095 yards and 15 touchdowns over his four years, which are great numbers at any level of football.

Analysis

Strengths

Positives: Adequate size, larger than most small-school prospects. ... Long limbs. ... Accelerates well and is also a strong runner after the catch. ... Blows by defenders at the Division III level. ... Good speed and quickness. ... Used on bubble screens and shallow crossing routes to get the ball in his hands early. ... Also a deep threat, able to adjust to the ball in the air. ... Good hands on punt and kickoff returns. ... Can get upfield quickly and shows a burst to hit the hole hard. Negatives: Will need to prove he can be mentally and physically strong enough to handle NFL defenses. ... Creating separation may be an issue at the next level. ... Inconsistent effort and success in downfield blocking. ... Not challenged on the line very much, may struggle to beat jam. ... Will dance a bit on returns.
