2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Juron Criner, WR, Arizona
Criner's best attributes are his special combination of size and speed. He doesn't play quite as tough as you might expect for a player of his size, but he shows a nice ability to get downfield and simply come down with the football. At best, he's an average route runner, but when the ball is in the air, Criner's hand-eye coordination is top notch. Using his body to shield off defenders, he can elevate and catch the ball in unorthodox ways. Criner is a bit sloppy with his body control, but does a good job to get his hands on the ball and come down with it.
After making catches, he looks to get upfield hard and fast. In order to keep improving, he needs to do better using his hands to get off of press coverage. Criner absorbs contact while route running very well. He'll need to do a better job with coming back to throws and not just allowing the ball to come to him.
Criner needs to run well at the combine and display his athleticism to separate himself from other projected middle round receivers.
