Detroit Lions draft preview WR Markus Wheaton
Checked out film on Oregon State WR Markus Wheaton. (Cal, UCLA, BYU, ASU) plus action from Senior Bowl week.
Strengths: NFL receiver. Runs every route. Catches with hands. Makes plays in traffic and elusive in the open field. Good blocker.
Weaknesses plays in PAC 12.
Bottom line: I love this guy. He would fit in with Lions to replace Titus. I rate him at 7 rookie starter with impact. I would give him a thought in the 2nd round.
