Pick Analysis: Mike Holmgren finally gives Colt McCoy an explosive weapon in the passing game with the selection of Little. Though he missed his final season due to an NCAA suspension, he has shown signs of being an impact playmaker in the past, and his intriguing skill set could make him a star at the next level.

Overview

Little was declared ineligible for the 2010 season, but he took responsibility for his actions and has the talent to be an impact player at the next level. He is a huge receiver with great ball skills that has a knack for making the difficult catch in traffic. He is a long strider that has deceptive speed and fights through tacklers to consistently gain yards after contact. However, he is not fast enough to be a big play threat and he will have to work tirelessly to get back into football shape. Little may end up being a steal in the middle rounds.


Strengths

Little has great size and length. Possesses big strong hands and shows terrific body control to make the acrobatic catch. Smart player that sets up defensive backs with fakes and has the burst to quickly gain separation. Strong runner after the catch with a powerful stiff arm. Fearless over the middle and a willing blocker.

Weaknesses

Does not possess the deep speed to stretch the field. High cut player that struggles at times to sink his hips and will lose speed in transition. Not the shiftiest runner in the open field and will not consistently get yards after the catch. Missed his entire 2010 season and will have to get back into football shape.

Grade

7.2
