Jason Rivers, WR, Hawaii

Rivers began his career in 2003 when started four out of eleven games. He accounted for 41 receptions for 451 yards with two touchdowns. In 2004, he started all thirteen games, producing 80 receptions for 973 with seven TDs. He did not play in 2005, so he was granted an extra year of eligibility. During his junior season, he started twelve out of fourteen games, leading the team with 72 catches for 1,178 yards. He capped of the season with an NCAA record breaking performance in the Hawaii Bowl, where he caught 308 yards. He was an All-WAC second team selection after the season. His senior season saw him catching 82 balls for 1,069 yards with 13 TDs and again he made the second team All-WAC. He will leave school holding many of their receiving records. Rivers is experienced and was very productive as a feature receiver. His size and body definition is impressive. He will attack the defender and is a willing run blocker. Rivers breaks quick out of his stand; he has good, not great, speed (4.54-40), but does posses smooth body control. He adjusts well when the ball is in the air and will work the sidelines and keep his feet inbound as he he will go across the middle. Rivers is a good route runner who runs especially well after the catch. Although, he lacks elite speed and will have a hard time getting separation from defenders, he does use his body to catch some balls. He is not an elusive player in the open field. Also, his history of injuries is a major concern, but they sometimes tend to disappear on the games. Although Rivers possesses many of the attributes teams are looking for in a possession-type receiver, his history of injuries and his lack of elusiveness will push Rivers to the bottom of the draft. He has an opportunity to impresses scouts in his bowl game against Georgia.
