2011 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Tandon Doss, WR, Indiana

by Cory J. Bonini on March 16, 2011 @ 03:58:48 PDT

 


Indiana wide receiver Tandon Doss declared for the 2011 NFL Draft following his junior season. He has been a fairly steady but unspectacular producer for the Hoosiers. In 2009, Doss snagged 77 passes for 962 yards and scored five times. His 2010 campaign produced similar results: 63-706-7.

Strengths

  • Gives up his body over the middle
  • Tough to bring down
  • Size (6-foot-2, 201 pounds)
  • Plays inside and outside
  • Tandon Doss, draft prospect
    Possession WR in the NFL
    Tracks over the shoulder well
  • Makes tough catches in stride
  • Experience running an array of routes
  • Respected team-first player
  • Understands how to exploit zone coverage
  • Special teams returner 

Weaknesses

  • Could struggle to create separation in the NFL
  • Possession receiver with little upside
  • Inconsistent route runner
  • Thin lower body
  • Poor blocker - doesn't always give it his all
  • Recovering from groin surgery (missed four games in 2008 because of knee and shoulder injuries)
  • Long strider but lacks elite speed

Expected draft placement

Doss should be a second-round pick in the upcoming draft. The San Diego Chargers could consider him in the second with one of their two picks, as he fits their offense's preferred mold of a wideout. It seems unlikely that Doss will slip out of the second round, but he is expected to go no later than the middle of the third.
