Erik Highsmith

School: North Carolina
Position: WR
Bio: Part of the starting lineup the past three seasons. Senior totals included 54 receptions/580 yards/5 TDs after 51/726/5 as a junior.
Positive: Consistent pass catcher with ordinary next-level skills. Quickly releases off the line of scrimmage, extends his hands, and offers the quarterback a target. Adjusts to errant throws, uses his frame to shield away defenders, and looks the ball into his hands. Comes back to the pass out of breaks and makes the tough catch in a crowd. Easily makes over-the-shoulder receptions downfield. Keeps the play in bounds after the catch.
Negative: Lacks a burst and more of a one-speed athlete. Not a big-framed receiver for a possession wideout.
Analysis: Highsmith was consistent for North Carolina yet shows no outstanding physical trait in his game. He'll offer possibilities in a West Coast offense running underneath routes.
