2011 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Terrence Toliver, WR, LSU

by Cory J. Bonini on April 4, 2011 @ 17:21:21 PDT

 


Louisiana State senior wide receiver Terrence Toliver brings a combination of good size and speed to the table in the 2011 NFL Draft.

In 2010, Toliver caught a career-high five touchdown passes to give him a career total of 12. He has hauled in 94 passes in the last two years.

Strengths

  • Deceptive straight-line speed (official 4.52-second 40-yard dash)
  • Very strong and large hands
  • Quick reflexes and reaction time when snagging passes
  • Terrence Toliver, draft prospect
    Is he a one-dimensional player?
    Size (6-foot-3 1/2, 212 pounds)
  • Vertical threat
  • Uses his size to his advantage
  • Fairly elusive in open space
  • Fights for extra yardage 

Weaknesses

  • Struggles to consistently separate from defenders
  • Makes tough catches look easy but drops the routine receptions - often tries to turn up the field before securing the ball
  • One-trick pony?
  • Arrested in 2010 on charges of disturbing the peace, interfering with a police officer and public intoxication stemming from a fight
  • Wasn't very productive (never broke 800 receiving yards in any single season)
  • Inconsistent performances

Expected draft placement

Toliver is likely to be a midround pick in April. He probably won't go higher than the early third round, but he could also slide into the fourth.
