Brian Hartline #83 WR
Height: 6-2 Weight: 200 Age: 28
Born: 11/22/1986 Canton , OH
College: Ohio State
Experience: 7th season
High School: Glen Oak HS [North Canton, OH]
Selected By: Miami Dolphins
Pick (Overall): 8 (108)
Hartline stepped up as a solid No. 2 receiver to Brian Robiskie with 52 catches for 694 yards and six scores in 2007. But the move to QB Terrelle Pryor and a different offensive mindset early in 2008 decreased Hartline's role. While he was still a big-play threat who averaged 22.4 yards per receptions, Hartline finished with just 21 catches.
Considering Ohio State's focus on Pryor's running ability, that Hartline considered leaving the Buckeyes wasn't a surprise. It was, however, a surprise that he didn't consider transferring rather than relinquishing his collegiate eligibility in the hopes of being a late-round pick. Had an arm span of 32 inches and a hand span of 10 inches at the combine.
