Love his ability to start and stop, and restart.
Makes a lot of difficult catches that will translate to the next level.
Nice stutter step and double move.
Good hips to change lanes in traffic for YAC.
Looks pretty explosive and scrambles well on broken play.
Man, it's going to be hard to place all of these guys.
Wheaton vs Trufant (projected 1st to 2nd round).
The lowest production he had in a game this year was against Washington.
He caught two passes early but then was hit (helmet to helmet I think) and missed the rest of the game.
He came back with 2 consecutive 100yd games, a 98yd game, a 99yd game, and another 100yd game.
Then came the Alamo Bowl against Texas.
Oregon St. was without their starting QB (who has been inconsistent all year).
The backup QB went 15-28 (missing 13 throws) for 194 yards and 2 INts.
Wheaton caught 3 passes for 37 yards; he also ran 4 times for 26 yards.
I will try to watch that game tonight to see what happened.
