LSU Wide Receiver Brandon LaFell
Brandon LaFell: No. 1, WR, 6-3, 209
A big, well-built receiver, LaFell knows how to extend his arms and pluck the ball away from his body. He's also a load to bring down after the catch. Possesses impressive body control and coordination and is reliably able to adjust to poorly thrown balls. LaFell, however, loses his concentration at times and drops some very catchable passes. Latching onto corners and angling them out of the play, he works hard as a blocker. Gets into his routes quickly and has the balance and footwork to sharply snap off routes and separate from his man. Lines up a lot in the slot and looks most natural working the middle of the field.
Knows how to set up corners and is very effective planting his foot in the ground and getting up to speed quickly down the field. Accelerating well out of his breaks, LaFell can consistently create separation against man coverage. Possesses only average deep speed but has the ability to threaten NFL corners down the field. He's a big, smooth route runner who has the makings of a No. 1 wideout in the NFL, but he will put the ball on the ground.
