2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Devon Wylie, WR, Fresno State
Look for Wylie to latch onto a team as a slot receiver who can mix it up as a weapon all over the field. Wylie can catch a bubble screen and take it to the house. He needs work as a route runner. If he puts in the time to be more precise and explosive when making his breaks, his speed will only help him even more.
Wylie has big hands for his size and can make catches away from his body. His small frame does limit his range but he does have a nice vertical leap. He also has the suddenness, particularly when getting off the line to gain separation quickly.
Wylie was drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in the fourth round. He will likely compete to become a slot receiver since the Chiefs already have three big-bodied receivers in Dwayne Bowe, Steve Breaston and Jonathan Baldwin. Expect the Chiefs to create some interesting sub packages using Wylie, Dexter McCluster and Jamaal Charles.
