PFF scouting report: Leonte Carroo, WR, Rutgers


Here is the PFF draft profile for Rutgers wide receiver Leonte Carroo, which incorporates PFF’s college grades and scouting intel from our team of analysts. To see all of PFF’s 2016 scouting reports, click here

Position rank: Top 5
Overall rank: Top 15

Position fit:

Slot or outside wide receiver.

Stat to know:

Averaged 4.11 yards per-route-run, better than any other receiver in the draft class, but without enough qualifying targets

What he does best:

• Outstanding hands, dropped just two of the 96 catchable passes thrown his way in 2014 and 2015
• Fantastic big play ability, averaged 20.1 yards per catch over the past two seasons
• Gets good separation on slants
• Forced seven missed tackles on 39 receptions in 2015
• Averaged 7.2 yards after the catch per reception over the past two seasons

Biggest concern:

• Are health concerns in the past?
• Drop off in play from being healthy to playing hurt was severe
• Route running was inconsistent, which might have been impacted by injury

Bottom line:

If he’s fully healthy, Leonte Carroo can be a dynamic playmaker in the NFL

    Best WR in this draft class!!

    This was a pretty weak write up. Seriously there’s like ten lines.

    • Rick

      You do realize this is a profile, not an article, right?

        Since when does a profile mean that its short.

        Rick, it said “Click here for full scouting report”. I like and admire PFF, but does this look like one to you?

    • Doc Bear

      A profile used to give you an overall concept of the player. That’s gone to this kind of approach. One fan’s feelings – it’s not a step up.

    Top WR in the draft class, if not the best. Reminds me a lot of Deandre Hopkins. Average speed but makes up for it with hands like glue and great body awareness. Could play in the slot but best fit is outside the numbers. If drafted by a team with a #1 receiver and has time to develop like Hopkins, he could also become a top tier WR in the NFL. Could Struggle if forced to be starting #1 on a pass oriented team.

  • Richard Stanczak

    Had never heard of him, then watched some game tape against the better teams Rutgers faced and he was amazing. Would love to see the Lions get him. Late second or early third round looks like where he might go.

    • RVM3

      No chance, dude.

  • Harvester of Sorrow

    laughable. your rankings are shit if he’s the 6th best WR. short WR w/average times aren’t worth trading up for by giving away next years 3rd and 4th. I don’t care if they expect to get compensatory picks. awful value for a WR 4.
