Lawrence Hamilton

WR | (6-2, 200, 4.55) | Stephen F. Austin
By Pro Football Weekly

Notes: High school basketball player who only played one year of football. Redshirted in 1998. Caught 10 passes for 191 yards and one touchdown in '99; 39-785-7 in 2000; and 37-610-5 in '01, despite playing with a separated shoulder. Started three games in 1999 and every game in 2000 and '01. In '02, made one catch for 23 yards before breaking an ankle in the season opener vs. Portland State and missing the rest of the season. He's fully recovered and hopes to continue career. Completed college eligibility.

Positives: Has good size and speed and can get deep but has slow buildup speed. Very good athletic ability and hand-eye coordination. Competes and plays hard. Has average hands and shows some ability to pluck and snatch the ball. Can adjust to the poorly thrown pass because of his body control but likes to do a lot of body catching. Plays hurt and stays aware on the sidelines. Jumps well and will block. Strong vs. press coverage and can run after the catch.

Negatives: Needs experience and technique. Rounds routes, not quick or sudden. Strides. Must learn to run, set up defensive backs and sell routes. Very raw. Is slow into and out of his breaks.

Summary: Small-school player who couldn't dominate at low level of competition, is coming off a serious ankle injury and stands a small chance of getting invited to a camp.
