is quite a talent from Diboll, Texas. Finley, 6-4 and 215 pounds, runs in the 4.6 range. He also stars in track and field and basketball. Without question he is one of the best all-around athletes from the Lone Star State.
But lets turn our attention to the gridiron. Is a wide receiver, tight end or H-back?
First of all, this kid has great wide receiver tools in terms of body and hands. Finley has super size and he catches everything he gets his hands on. I mean everything. Finley uses his body so well to shield the defender and go up and get the football. He has excellent concentration and can catch the ball in traffic as good as I have seen in a long time.
Does he have the speed to play wide receiver? Maybe. For his size to play wide receiver he has adequate speed. And you don't have to be a speed demon to be a great wide receiver, especially when you know he has other outstanding attributes like size and hands. But with his great frame, he could certainly beef up and be an outstanding H-back or tight end at the next level. I think it's very important for Finley to find the right fit scheme wise at the next level. If he does, the sky's the limit with his vast potential.
"How many times do you ask your receiver to work his way back to the ball?
Or to catch it at the apex? Jermichael Finley puts on a clinic with regard
to the latter, utilizing his large frame and size to wall off defenders," said Stacey Dean, TheInsiders.com/ Big 12 Reruiting Analyst. "We're talking a 6-3/6-4, 210-pound wideout who will be a monster weapon in the red zone and a favorite target on 3rd/4th-down situations."
