Edmond Gates

School: Abilene Christian
Position: WR
Bio: Three-year starter awarded all-Conference honors the past two seasons while being named an All-American after his senior season. Receiving totals last season included 66/1182/13 after 49/702/5 the prior year. Experienced as a kick returner.
Positive: Blazing field stretcher at the receiver position with home run speed. Quickly gets off the line, immediately gets a top speed, and easily runs away from defenders in the open field. Shows great acceleration and can turn it on in a single step. Extends to make the reception away from his frame. Runs well laterally, effectively tracks the ball, and adjusts to make the catch. Makes big plays if given just a small amount of open space on the field. Tough to tackle running after the reception and shows strength. Consistently has opponents playing back on their heels.
Negative: Vertical receiver that was rarely asked to run precise routes in college. Rounds off breaks and shows little sharpness. Slowed down during position drills at the combine when he was asked to run a variety of NFL-type patterns.
Analysis: Gates is a tremendous athlete and one of the few game breakers available at the receiver position. He's also with solid pass catcher who must learn to do more than run in a straight line and catch the ball. Gates could produce in the NFL next season as a slot receiver and comes with a large upside.
