Pros:  Good initial quickness off the snap to get into his route. Experienced route-runner who can generate separation from defenders due to his agility. Reliable hands. Can pluck the ball outside of his frame and quickly secures it. Tracks the ball well over either shoulder. Experienced as a punt and kick returner. Good vision and a naturally elusive runner with the ball in his hands. Not afraid to go over the middle. Will fight for extra yardage. Classic build, quickness and hands for the West Coast Offense. Better quickness than pure straight-line speed, but is elusive and has the burst to separate.

Cons:  Questionable straight-line speed. Relies on his quickness and agility to create separation and may never become a classic deep threat. Has never operated as the go-to target while at Oklahoma, and has to prove he can handle the pressure of lining up opposite the opponent's best corner. Viewed by some as only a complementary receiver whose best NFL position might be as a slot receiver.

From Scouting Report at Mocking the Draft:

 Iglesias is an intelligent receiver who runs goods routes and reads defenses nicely. Has very good quickness to get off the line or to snap off a route to get open. Runs sharp routes. Good hands; consistently catches the ball away from his body. A tough receiver will to go inside on slants. Has some experience returning punts and kicks. Nice vision after the catch.

From Music City Miracles:

Despite only being listed at 6-0 Juaquin Iglesias was Oklahoma's leading receiver in terms of both receptions (74) and receiving yards (1,150). He was also second on the team in receiving touchdowns with 10. Iglesias was a four year player who improved each season going from 19 in 2005 to the 74 he posted in 2008.

I don't think that he has the size to play on the edge but is perfect for the slot. He has very good hands, blazing speed and is a tough physical player. He averaged 15.5 yards per reception as a senior and can also make an impact on special teams as well. I would compare him to another Sooner in Baltimore's Mark Clayton.


Scouting Reports and Offsite Links:

  • Juaquin Iglesias dropped the first pass thrown to him during wide receiver drills Tuesday at Oklahoma’s Pro Day.

    He also dropped the last one.

    But every ball in between, no matter where the pass was thrown, stuck to Iglesias’ hands as if they were made from Velcro.

    Having already produced a solid time of 4.50 seconds in the 40-yard dash at last month’s NFL Scouting Combine, Iglesias wanted to show off his hands.

    And that, he did.  [see more...]

Hard worker ...Also has some potential as a punt returner.  [see more...]
  • In 2008, this is Iglesias' team. But the problem is that Iglesias is a possession receiver, not a tall touchdown scoring machine. At 6-0, he is not going to be a number one receiver in the NFL, but he could emerge as a great slot receiver.

    Since he is a possession receiver, Iglesias will not likely be a first round draft pick, even though his collegiate production warrants such things. But he could squeeze into the first round (much like Anthony Gonzalez did in 2007).  [see more....]
