What are your thoughts on his hands and is his speed enough to be effective deep in the NFL?

I don't think he will be that much of a deep threat in the NFL.

Juaquin has good hands, he is quicker than he is fast, and is very good after the catch.

Seems like the kind of WR that makes his living over the middle of the field

I've watched quite a bit of Iglesias, and the one think that always impressed me is his hands. He also seems to have good awareness. I think he can be a good #2 or #3 receiver, but I dont see him as much of a deepthreat.

I would call his speed deceptive, and by that I mean he is quick enough in and out of breaks that he can get a defensive backs hips turned or get him on the wrong foot and then has enough speed out of his breaks that he can get behind him. He will not be running fly patterns past anyone in man to man... I would guess 4.48-4.53... I really like everything about him and he has been my #1 senior WR for quite a while.

I still compare him to a quicker Hines Ward.

That says a lot coming from HinesWardJr.

Well look at this way. Iglesias has good hands, can block, goes over the middle, and isn't really fast. Hines Ward is all of those.

I couldn't come up with a comparison, but I actually think that is a really good one.

I see him as a bigger steve smith (USC) because he has deceptive speed, but really excels as a possession receiver who uses his body and hands to really hurt teams.

I don't think he will be a very good deep threat in the pros. I think his best fit at the NFL level is in the slot.

Terrell Owens doesn't exactly light the world on fire with his 40 time, but he's a huge deep threat.

I think he will make a great slot receiver in the NFL. bigger Steve Smith (giants) is a perfect comparison. He is a crafty route runner. He is a little better after the catch then smith though. I am interseted to see what he can do against florida.

this is what really gets me, seeing a big guy knowing he doesnt run a 4.4 and saying he isnt a deep threat, makes no sense at all. Having all the routes at your disposal good body control, strength and ability to catch in traffic are just as conducive to being a deep threat as 4.4 speed. Examples Plax, TO,Larry Fitzgerald, Vincent Jackson, Roddy White.

Although I'm wary of Oklahoma guys, I think Iglesias could be a solid guy. Solid 2nd round pick for whichever team gets him, similar to Steve Smith as noted although I think Smith was better.

Manny Johnson, the other Sooners senior receiver, might also pan out.
