Height: 6-3

Weight: 210

40-Time: ~4.45

Draft Stock: He could go anywhere from the 20's to the Jacksonville Jaguars at #38. The Houston Texans are the team to watch since they would be the most interested..



Rueben Randle, like Georgia Tech's Stephen Hill, has been overlooked due to the conservative offense that he was a part of. He has all of the physical tools to be successful at the NFL Level, and I believe that he could easily become an immediate contributor  in almost any offense.

+ Ideal Size  

 He is 6-3 and over 200 pounds. He has a big body that can put him in prime position to win jump balls and enought speed that could make him a legit #1 receiver.

+ Gets Great separation

It is surprising how wide open he gets downfield. Perhaps it has a lot to do with LSU's running game, but on many of his deep catches, he had two or three steps on his defender. 

- Not very much exposure

As we alluded to earlier, there is not much tape on him as the star receivers like Justin Blackmon and Kendall Wright. sdue to the run-heavy offense at LSU. Sure, he made plays, but he only caught 53 balls during the 2011 season and 97 in his entire career. Then again, the fact that he hasn't caught many balls doesn't mean that he can't be successful at the NFL level, just look at Dwayne Bowe of the Kansas City Chiefs

Career Highlight

9 catches for 134 yards against the Arkansas Razorbacks.Imagine pairing him up with Laurent Robinson….
