Scouting Report
Paul is considered a solid NFL prospect despite playing his college career in Nebraska's run-heavy offense. He led the Cornhuskers in receiving yardage in each of his final two seasons, though his production declined from his junior year (40 receptions, 796 yards, four touchdowns) to his senior campaign (39 receptions, 516 yards, one TD). Those numbers would have been higher, but he missed the last three games of 2010 due to a broken foot, which has since healed. Paul also returned kicks and punts in college, including one for a touchdown in each of his final three seasons. Paul has good size and excellent strength, as evidenced by his 24 reps in the bench press at the NFL combine - second-most among wide receivers. He also performed well in the 20-yard shuttle, placing 12th at his position. While those results bode well for Paul, he needs to improve his ability to run crisp routes and gain separation from defenders, and he doesn't have great hands. He is willing to go over the middle, though, and carries a reputation as a coachable and hard-working player. Despite a couple of alcohol-related offenses at Nebraska, Paul is considered a good prospect for the middle or late rounds of the draft.
