Donte' Stallworth

SELECTED BY BUFFALO , ROUND 1, PICK 13, OVERALL PICK 13
WR | (6-0, 197, 4.4) | Tennessee | COLLEGE STATS
By Pro Football Weekly

Notes: High school sprinter and jumper as well as a football star. Redshirted in 1998. Caught 23 passes for 407 yards and a touchdown in '99 despite not starting one game. Hurt his foot in the Fiesta Bowl and had postseason surgery. Foot was never fully healed in 2000, when he started 2-of-12 games and caught 35-519-2. Injured his left wrist in the '01 opener and missed three games and five starts but still caught 41-821-10 and returned six punts for 98 yards and a score despite playing with a cast and then a brace. Declared for this year's draft and then withdrew his name, but the NCAA refused to restore his eligibility. Decided not to appeal the decision and re-entered the draft.

Positives: Top athlete with tremendous balance and body control. Very quick and fast and strong for his size. Has great explosive speed and strength. Runs through and breaks tackles like a top running back. Gamebreaker and big-play maker. Dangerous runner after the catch and return man. Runs good routes and can make the exceptional catch and run. Has unlimited potential.

Negatives: Lacks experience and has not been that durable. Lacks consistency and concentration at times. Will drop some very easy passes because he is looking where to run before he catches the ball.

Summary: A premier athlete who will develop into a special player if he can stay healthy and improve his concentration and focus.
