Champaign Combine - Wide Receivers
Chris James, 6-0, 180, Chicago (Morgan Park) What's there not to like about James? Chris always has a smile on his face and he's always about the competition. He's not going to be a stretch-receiver at the next level but he could be a tremendous slot receiver. Chris is going to be a go-to-guy in college, his hands are that good. He made some incredible grabs on Saturday, the best being a one-handed catch on a fade route. James doesn't have burner speed but he does have very good leaping and play making ability. Quentin Davie, 6-4, 190, St. Louis (Mo.) Cardinal Ritter Davie was the biggest receiver at the combine. The Duke commitment caught everyone's attention with his size, long stride and leaping ability. Quentin has huge hands and he's very strong. He simply overpowered defensive backs during the one-on-one drills. Davie didn't have a blazing 40-yard time but the track at Illinois was a slow one. Quentin has the frame to add more weight and he could grow into a tight end at the next level. D.D. Hardy, 5-11, 165, New Haven, Michigan I really liked Hardy. He wasn't as big as the other wide receivers but he ran better and was quicker than most of the skilled position athletes on hand. Hardy was technician that ran very good routes and had excellent hands. D.D. will definitely be a prospect that we keep an eye on in 2005. Marques Wilkins, 6-1, 190, Decatur (Ill.) MacArthur If Wilkins lived in the Chicago area, he'd be getting a lot more attention. Marques is a major D-1 wide receiver prospect that's in the same class talent wise as most of the wide receiver prospects in the Midwest. Wilkins has legit size and speed. He also runs very good routes and his best attribute is his competitiveness on the football field. Illinois has offered and Wilkins is a must-get prospect for the Illini. Sergio Kahn, 6-2, 190, University City (Mo.) Senior Good prospects always stand out and that's exactly what Kahn did on Saturday. Sergio had a very good junior season with 44 receptions and 740 yards. Kahn showed some very good athleticism, making some tough catches against tight coverage. Sergio showed great concentration and hand-eye coordination during one-on-one drills. Kahn is flying under the recruiting radar but he'll get his college paid for. Sergio can also play on the defensive side of the ball in college, perhaps as a safety.
