2011 NFL Draft Profile: Edmond Gates

Height: 5-11

Weight: 192lbs

PROS: Receiver with blazing speed and very good burst. Elusive receiver with and without the football, tough to bring down. Big play threat that’s a natural play maker. Adjusts to the ball well in the air catching a lot of poorly thrown footballs. Offers a weapon in the kick return game. Fastest wide receiver at the 2011 NFL Combine.

CONS: Despite catching a lot of poorly thrown balls, has a tendency to drop too many easy passes. Not a very polished receiver that will need to work on and refine his route running ability, relied a lot on his speed alone. Was originally a basketball player.
