Pos: Wide Receiver
School: New Mexico State
Class: Senior
Ht: 6-1 Wt: 185
40-Time: 4.52 Bench: 12

Kemonte' Bateman isn't afraid to make plays. The former Aggie plays taller than his 6-1 frame, eager to propel himself into the air or fight over a jump ball. He also displays great elusiveness, a trait that helped him as a punt returner for New Mexico State. A two-year transfer from Pasadena Junior College, Bateman played in every game in his two years with the Aggies, rounding up over 1100 yards and nine touchdowns.

What I like most about Bateman is his aggressiveness toward the ball. Watch this film and you will see several occasions where his QB underthrows Bateman's route, or a cornerback has the inside angle on a jump ball. Bateman isn't afraid to get physical for the football, even (especially?) in mid-air, and he comes away with the football every time. (Granted, this is a highlight video, but it's still impressive).

I also like his hands and elusiveness. Bateman's route, cut, and run upfield for a touchdown at the 3:15 mark -- burning one defender and speeding past another -- was particularly tasty.

Scouting Reports: NFLDS, DB

Camp Competition: Demaryius Thomas, Eric Decker, Wes Welker, Matthew Willis, Andre Caldwell, Tavarres King, Trindon Holliday, Greg Orton, Gerell Robinson, Quincy McDuffie, Lamaar Thomas

Camp Outlook: The Broncos have a ton of bodies at wide receiver, so Bateman's practice tape will need to match his highlight reel in order to make the 53-man roster in 2013. It's not impossible -- outside of the top three Broncos receivers, there's a lot of fluidity at the position. With a camp as aggressive as any one of his plays for the football, Bateman could be a surprise survivor of the UDFA pool.
