Miami added another wide receiver in the draft with the selection of Coastal Carolina WR Matt Hazel. Hazel has adequate size at 6'1, 198 lbs and nice speed, as he clocked a 4.47 40 at the combine. Polished player that runs solid routes, flexible and balanced with the body control to make smooth adjustments on erratic throws. Proper patience and decisiveness in his routes to deceive defenders and create room to work. Sinks his hips and drives out of his breaks with natural footwork. Stays light on his feet as a ballcarrier and in his patterns. Works hard after the catch and won't concede yards. Has lined up inside and outside and has run the full route tree. Concerns are that he lacks ideal size and bulk and can be overpowered as a blocker. Good, not elite speed to seperate. That said, his skill set translates well into the NFL.

I can't tell the difference between this guy and Rishard Matthews' when I look at their tape. They are clones of each other. Hazel seems to gain separation with less effort, and has a better burst off the LOS.

Two completely different players. Look at both of their game tape, you'd be lying to yourself if you still came to that conclusion.

I see Landry as a STer and 4th or 5th WR in the NFL, Hazel could possibly be coached into more than that imo, more of a dislike of Landry really.

WEAKNESSES: Lacks ideal bulk and strength for the position and is too easily out-muscled and pushed around. Overmatched as a blocker and plays too light and passive in this area. Needs to do a better job in traffic and use his body more assertively.

Lacks dynamic burst to consistently separate and won't fool anyone with his moves after the catch. Limited vertical threat. Room to improve his footwork and awareness along the sideline. Will round off some routes and needs to continue and progress in this area. Didn't face top-flight competition each week at the FCS level.

He'll struggle to make the team behind Wallace, Hartline, Gibson, Matthews, Binns, and Landry. He's a likely candidate for the practice squad in my opinion.

Weaknesses
Not physically strong with a lean body build, small hands and short arms. Can be knocked off routes by tight press coverage. Average strength and elusiveness after the catch. Looks for a landing spot before contact (hears footsteps). Alligator arms appear in traffic and bodies the ball along the sideline. Shows some tightness in his body coming out of breaks and routes could use more refinement.
Draft Projection
Round 7-Priority free agent

BTW I know he's from a small school but Georgia wanted him after he signed with CC.

wow, you mean even Jadeveon Clowney has a weaknesses paragraph in his draft profile? :embarrassed:

WEAKNESSES Is more thinly built in the lower body. Inconsistent technician. Has a tendency to play tall. Down-to-down effort lacks consistency. Lacks discipline on and off the field and has had to be managed closely since he arrived on campus. Needs to learn what it means to be a pro. Plays in spurts and is too much of a flash player -- does not consistently dominate like he could. Is still immature and finding his way -- too much of a follower.

They all have pros and cons. I give every team a C in the draft. If they suck F, if they are good an A. Of course it can fluctuate. Last year's draft is a F. IF they contribute and do good this year, A. lol

I don't know a single team the only drafts BPA's. They're all out there doing the same thing, filling needs. Only difference is contenders more often than not get to focus their early picks on difference makers.

Where teams can be judged is on how they maneuvered (or were out maneuvered) in getting their players. Are the players projects? Are they tweeners that don't have a defined position?

Listen, if you're pickin 19th in every round you're probably not gonna come away with alot of glamour picks like the Rams did this year. And that's all the typical fan knows. It makes me laugh.
The truth is they're almost all "projects" after the top 20 or so picks.

All (1 through the end) picks are a crap shoot only time will tell. Jay Clown might be a bust, and James the best pick ya never know. :jests:
