Iglesias is a guy that will go in the 2nd or 3rd round, which is about 2 rounds before the Titans start looking for receivers.

The Measurables

Height- 6-0 7/8
Weight- 210
40- 4.56

Here are some thoughts from our friends and Crimson and Cream Machine:

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.

His scouting report from NFL Draft Countdown:

Strengths:
Good size and bulk...Decent athleticism and is very smooth...More quick than fast...Soft, reliable hands...Good ball skills and body control...Excellent route runner...Elusive with great vision...Can do some damage after the catch...Very tough...Isn't afraid to go across the middle...Decent blocker...Great competitor who comes through in the clutch... Hard worker ...Also has some potential as a punt returner.

Weaknesses:
Timed speed is merely average...Is not very explosive...Won't get a lot of separation...Needs to get stronger...May have trouble beating the jam...Doesn't break many tackles...Overall upside is probably limited.

I am sure our Texas people have seen him play a bunch and can add some insight.
