2010 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Verran Tucker, WR, California

A two year stint at a California junior college preceded his time with the Golden Bears. One of the most coveted WR at the JUCO level, Tucker entered Cal in 2007. Then moved into the starting lineup by the seventh game of the 2008 season, posting decent numbers (21 receptions for 362 yards (17.2 ypc. and 2 TDs). His numbers did not improve that much this past season. He finished the regular season with 23 catches -- good enough for 375 yards (16.3 average) -- and without a touchdown. Tucker has above average height, bulk and strength; He uses his body well to shield defenders from the ball. He has long arms to make plays on jump balls and has the skills to become a weapon in the red zone. Though, he must improve his route-running; he is below average against zone coverage. Tucker lacks an explosive burst off the line and out of breaks, with suspect speed (4.50) and agility preventing him from being a threat in the open field. With only two seasons in his resume and limited opportunities, it is obvious that he needs more experience and a better work habit to become a better prospect. He does have the physical tools to develop into an NFL contributor in time. A possession receiver with some upside, Tucker should hear his name called around the fifth or sixth round.

Prediction: 7th Round

Tucker will get a look because of some big plays, but has a ways too go to make it.
