Nelson Spruce

School: Colorado
Position: WR
Positive: Four-year starter awarded all-Conference honors as a junior when he posted career totals of 106 receptions, 1198 yards and 12 TDs. Consistent possession receiver who does the little things well. Quickly releases off the line scrimmage, sells routes and uses his hands to separate from defenders. Comes back to the ball out of breaks, uses his frame to shield away opponents and consistently extends to make the reception away from his frame. Tracks the deep pass in the air, adjusts to the errant throw and makes the difficult catch with opponents draped on him. Gets vertical in a crowd, exposes himself to the big hit and works to come away with the catch. Displays great focus, concentration and always on balance. Consistently finds ways to come free, displays a sense of timing as well as good eye/hand coordination. Plays heads-up football and gives effort blocking.
Negative: More quick than fast, lacks a burst and not a vertical receiver. Average run after the catch skill. Has short arms.
Analysis: Spruce is a terrific football player with athletic limitations yet someone who could help the team as a 4th or 5th receiver running underneath routes and also offers potential returning punts.
