2017 NFL Draft Profile: Demore'ea Stringfellow

Damore'ea Stringfellow, Mississippi
6-2, 211
Stringfellow was a two year producer for the Rebels after transferring from Washington after legal issues in Seattle.
As a freshman at Washington, he posted 20-259-1. He transferred to Ole Miss as a sophomore, and posted 36-503-5, and averaged 13.97 YPC. As a junior, his final season, he posted 46-716-6, and averaged 15.57 YPC.
The Good
Has the size you are looking for in a receiver.
Has plus body control, and is able to sell out for the amazing catch and will get low for the gopher balls into the ground.
Can track balls with ease on the long throws, but also knows how to find seams in the zone and plant there.
The Bad
He has a fairly limited sample size, and was only a full time starter for one season.
Dos not pop off of the line, and lacks top shelf speed.
Easily jammed off of the line.
Sloppy route runner, and can get taken off routes easily.
His footwork is lacking, and he looks plodding at times.
He does not possess first rate hands.
Terrible run blocker.
Showed real maturity issues at Washington, leading to his transfer.
Final Overview
I think people are still trying to come to grips with the fact that Stringfellow was a five star athlete out of high school and are still banking on that. He has never lived up to that hype. He got into a post Super Bowl brawl at Washington, and was basically forced to leave, and he never lived up to much at Ole Miss, and was never a stat leader anywhere. He has some physical skill, but is still very raw, and I would have to pass on this prospect. Someone, however, will not.
