JAKE SMITH | School: SUNY-Cortland | Position: WO | Height: 6005v | Weight: 187v | Hand: 0868v | Arm: 3148v | Wingspan: 7400v | Age: 25 | Agent: John Perez

Evaluation: 

Wore No.20 at HUB Football (April/2021). Average height and weight receiver with average arm and hand measurements. This little know WR was consistent in his fluidity when running routes, his burst to separate from defenders and his hands to secure all balls thrown his way. A competitive receiver that found ways to win both in the zone coverage drills and in the one-on-ones. Showed do initial burst off the LOS to separate from defenders that walked up to press him. Had good a quick release to defeat press at the LOS, using his foot quicks to get corner to reach and overextend so he could avoid punch and get by him. Showed good bend into his breaks and had a consistent burst out of the breaks to sit in a chair and explode out of it. Was a soft handed receiver that caught all the catchable balls thrown his way at the workout. Didn’t see the close-quarter quickness to say he would be an elusive after the catch runner. See him as a good fifth or sixth for any NFL team / solid core four team contributor and has instant starter qualities for the CFL with his speed, route running skills and sure hands.
