Overview

Prepped at Bethlehem (Pa.) Liberty, where he went to three state title games (one win) and excelled in track and field. Redshirted in 2009. Played all 13 games in 2010, starting four, and caught 25 balls for 318 yards (12.7-yard average) and two touchdowns. Suffered a concussion during 2011 fall camp. In the fall, started all 13 games and had 53 catches for 754 yards (14.2) and two touchdowns. Was charged (via mailed summons) with simple assault and conspiracy in November 2011 after a student told police he was hit in the head during a confrontation with Street and two other players. The charge was later reduced to disorderly conduct, and Street was given community service. Was the Panthers' leading receiver for the second straight season in 2013, when he started all 13 games and totaled 73 catches for 975 yards (13.4) and five touchdowns. In 2013, managed 51 catches for 854 yards (16.7) and seven touchdowns in 10 starts. Hurt his right shoulder against Virginia Tech and sat out against Old Dominion, then injured his elbow against Syracuse and missed the final two games against Miami and Bowling Green. Also rushed 11 times in his career for 77 yards (7.5) and zero touchdowns. Owns the school's career receptions record (202). Team captain.

Analysis

Strengths

Has excellent length and room for added bulk. Chews up ground with long strides. Is a big target underneath with a sizable catch radius. Shows natural receiving skills to track, concentrate and adjust. Soft, dependable hands to extend and pull in a throw off his body. Uses his big frame to post up defensive backs. Nice field awareness. Lined up outside and inside. Solid personal and football character. Productive, 40-game starter. Team captain.

Weaknesses

Has a thin build and could stand to pack on body armor -- durability could be an issue. Needs to get stronger, particularly to improve his release vs. the jam. Builds to speed and is not a threat to take the top off. Leggy and fairly straight-linish -- does not pop out of breaks or separate with quickness. Inconsistent route runner. Not aggressive or physical as a blocker. Can be more cognizant of ball security -- carries loosely and swings the ball away from his body. Limited special-teams utility.

Draft Projection

Rounds 4-5

Bottom Line

Pitt's all-time leading pass catcher, Street is a narrowly built, long-levered, smooth-muscled receiver whose best assets are his length and hands. Needs to incorporate more physicality into his overall game, but has the ability to be an effective zone beater and red-zone target.
