Slater is son of Hall of Famer Jackie Slater, but that's not why he's a prospect. His quickness as a return man and potential at receiver have garnered interest from NFL scouts. He mostly played as a defensive back for the Bruins the past couple of seasons after starting out at receiver. The statistic that sticks out for Slater was a 29.0-yard average on kickoff returns in 2007, including three returns for touchdown.
