Biography: Two-year starter awarded all-conference honors as a junior with totals of 50 receptions/904 yards/8 touchdowns, with an average of 18.1 yards per reception. Sophomore totals included 33/544/3.
Positives: Tall, fluid receiver with a nice game. Quickly releases off the line into pass routes, is deceptively fast and gets down the field to make big plays. Sells pass routes, effectively uses his hands to get separation and comes back to the ball out of breaks. Displays good quickness, uses his frame to box out defenders or get vertical over opponents and pulls the ball from the air. Extends his hands to make the reception away from his frame and displays good eye/hand coordination. Exposes himself to the big hit and comes away with the ball in a crowd. Easily makes the deep reception in full stride and consistently catches the ball with his hands.
Negatives: Does not show much in the way of running after the catch skills. Slows into pass routes. Has lapses in concentration.
Analysis: Randle is a big-play receiver who watched his game take off the past two seasons. He offers the size, pass-catching skill and speed to develop into a No. 1 wideout at the next level. Randle comes with a lot of upside, and his next-level skills are underrated as we move toward the draft.
Biography: Two-year starter awarded all-conference honors as a junior with totals of 52 tackles/3 interceptions/12 pass breakups. Sophomore totals included 39/9/8.
Positives: Small yet effective cornerback with top ball skills. Quick flipping his hips to transition with receivers, displays good awareness and works well with safeties. Stays with receivers out of breaks, displays the ability to run with opponents anywhere on the field and effectively keeps the action in front of him. Remains disciplined with zone assignments and is always around his man. Quickly locates the ball in the air and consistently positions himself to defend the throw. Terrific burst of closing and recovery speed. Gives effort defending the run.
Negatives: Side shuffles down the field, which hurts his ability to quickly plant and break to the ball. Lacks size and loses out to larger receivers. Does not consistently display good timing in pass defense.
Analysis: Hosley is a versatile cornerback who displays skill in both man-to-man and zone coverage. He possesses the ball skills and speed to play at the next level, and his return ability provide added guy you. Size may prevent Hosely from being a starter at the next level, but he'll be a solid nickel back who can line up in a variety of defensive schemes.
Giants reach big time, once again going with a physical specimen with little skill.
