Draft Profile: Devin Funchess
Devin Funchess- Wide Receiver- Michigan
Size: 6’5 230lbs
2012 Stats: 15 receptions 234 yards 5 TDs
2013 Stats: 49 receptions 248 yards 6 TDs
2014 Stats: 62 receptions 733 yards 4 TDs
- Great size- Big
- Body control
- Good straight line speed
- Can get to throws most can’t
Analysis: Funchess a converted tight end, possesses great size for the wide receiver position. That size will pose mismatches against defensive backs, especially in the Red Zone. Funchess while not a burner, has good straight line speed, and plays with good body control. He creates good separation with his hands.
Need to Improve:
- Not great hands- 20+ drops in college
- Catches with his body, not his hands
- Not a great route runner
- Fast enough as a WR?
- Not good enough blocking skills to be TE
Analysis: Funchess will not be mistaken for a sure handed wide receiver, accumulating over 20 drops throughout his career at Michigan. While I mentioned, he has good straight lined speed, agility and lateral movement is lacking. When the ball is in the air, Funchess doesn’t come down with it as much as he should for his size.
Round Prediction: 3
