Juaquin Iglesias
6-1/210 Oklahoma
4.54 Senior

Pros: Has good speed and quickness. Is dangerous after the catch and in open space. Quickly secures ball and turns upfield. Has a nice stiff arm and will power through arm tackles. But shows good shiftiness and will make guys miss. Has good hands. Is a willing blocker that can be physical at times. Does a nice job laying out for ball and attacking it in the air. Does a good job on the short routes using his quickness to get good separation and good on slants. Contributes on kickoff returns.

Cons: Lacks true burner speed. Struggles to beat the jam. Will drop some passes and needs to show better concentration. Dances too much on kickoffs. Not a great blocker despite effort.

Overview: Iglesias is the playmaker at wideout for Oklahoma and was the most reliable option in their passing game. He has upside and playmaking ability. Stepped into void left by Malcolm Kelly as the team's top option. Returned a kickoff for a score a sophomore.

NFL Forecast: His ability after the catch is what makes him so dangerous. He's not exceptional big or fast, but if you give him the ball in space and give him a step, he's very dangerous. He'll need to refine his route- running in order to do that at the next level. But I see him as a solid slot receiver to begin with that as he polishes up his skills some more can move outside and be a solid No. 2 target. At times flashes No. 1 potential but I'm confident he can really be a go-to threat. Instead put a big physical receiver opposite him like an Eric Moulds that can draw double teams and he'll be one of more productive No. 2s in the league. While he's a much better player, you could see him having Peerless Price-like production in such a situation.

ATL Forecast: Iglesias is a playmaker that you want the ball in his hands in space. He could help out the team on special teams as a returner, but not consistent or disciplined enough there that I think he could take over for Norwood right away. Might be better suited to return punts, but is a bit of a project there. He is a bigger playmaker than Jenkins, but not sure he'll be able to impact as a starter until three or so years down the road. Not sure he'd be able to get off the bench here, although his occasional playmaking abilities would still be greatly appreciated even as a reserve.

Value: For a team looking to develop a No. 2, Iglesias is a solid fit in the middle of Round 2.
