Image

6’4” – 195 lbs. – 4.50e

STATISTICAL PROFILE:

2009: Redshirt
2010: 25 – 318 – 2 (12.7)
2011: 53 – 754 – 2 (14.2)
2012: 73 – 975 – 5 ( 13.4)

OVERVIEW:

Redshirted in 2009, then emerged as a fairly regular contributor as a redshirt freshman in 2010, starting four of the thirteen games in which he appeared. As a junior in 2011, became a full-time starter, starting all thirteen games, something he replicated in 2012 en route to an All-Big East Second Team selection.

STRENGTHS:

•    Possesses prototypical height and length for a professional split end.
•    Long arms and leaping ability give him an impressive catch radius.
•    Has also lined up in the slot on occasion, more often than anticipated.
•    Top-end speed is impressive given his size, could become a deep threat.
•    Capable of gaining yards after the catch, used frequently on screens.
•    Not afraid to run crossing routes over the middle of the field.
•    Production has consistently escalated over each year at Pittsburgh.

WEAKNESSES:

•    A little bit thinner than you’d like, will need to add some additional bulk.
•    Not a particularly good blocker due to lack of strength, poor effort.
•    Gets a lot of his production from screens rather than downfield throws.
•    Overruns routes versus zone coverage rather than settling into soft spots.
•    Occasionally struggles to track the deep ball in the air effectively.
•    Something of a body catcher, especially on routes down the field.

SUMMARY:

Street is somewhat difficult to evaluate because his usage in college is incongruous with what he will likely be asked to do at the professional level, function as a deep/vertical threat rather than run the constant slot screens Pittsburgh asks him to gain yards on; for this reason, it requires more imagination than most prospects to project him to the next level. However, he possesses obvious physical tools and could develop into a better pro than college receiver. His lack of blocking skills will negatively impact his appeal to teams in West Coast offenses, however. RD 3-4
