Reports the NY Jets worked out Andy Dalton don't tell the entire story. WR/Jeremy Kerley, a mid-round prospect was also part of the workout
Bio: Three-year starter awarded all-Conference honors since his sophomore season and twice named Mountain West Special Teams Player of the Year. Led the team in receiving as a senior, posting 56/575/10, also averaging 12.9 yards on 30 punt returns and 27.7 yards on 19 kick returns. Junior receiving totals included 44/532/2 with an average of 14.4 yards on 39 punt returns. Also averaged 26.6 yards on 18 kick returns.
Positive: Productive skill player who can help a team in a variety of ways. Solid receiver who immediately gets off the snap, shows quickness into breaks, and runs terrific routes. Stays low on exit, comes back to the ball, and displays a good sense of timing. Possesses good eye/hand coordination and quickly transitions from making the reception to running after the catch. Nicely adjusts to the errant throw, makes the difficult reception in stride, and shows ability running after the reception.
Consistently makes catches away from his frame. Impacts the game as a return specialist.
Negative: One-speed receiver who cannot get separation down the field. Was never a dominant receiver.
Analysis: Kerley was a consistent threat at TCU whenever he handled the ball. He projects well at the next level as a slot receiver and should immediately help out returning punts. Likely to be downgraded because of his poor speed, Curley should still see significant action as a rookie in the NFL.
