Robert Meachem WR 6'2 214 Tennessee Jr. 4.42

By: Robert Davis

Meachem was a big time recruit in 2003 that injured his knee and redshirted his first season in Knoxville. His first season on the field in 2004 showed his big play ability. He caught 35 passes for 459 yards and four touchdowns. His numbers were similar as a sophomore, where he caught 29 balls for 388 yards and two touchdowns. Meachem broke out as a junior, finally living up to the hype he had coming to Tennessee. He was named to various All American teams after hauling in 71 passes for 1,298 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Robert Meachem is the total package at wide receiver. He has an excellent frame. He is tall, but has a solid build and the strength to overpower corners. He has shown the ability to be an intermediate and red zone threat with his combination of size, strength, and athleticism. What makes him stand out though, is his ability to move and ability to make plays with the ball in his hands. Meachem has very good speed, and has the quickness to change direction and make defenders miss.

Meachem has had only one year where he did what was expected. Hes had issues dropping passes in the past, and has had problems believing in his own ability. He appeared to mature as a junior, and the result was an excellent season. He still will need to show that hes ready to work and can sustain his confidence at the next level.

This is turning out to be a very deep draft for wide receivers, and Meachem is a part of that. With his combination of size and athleticism, he could push to be the second receiver taken, after Calvin Johnson.
