For the second year in a row, legitimate NFL buzz is building around a Hillsdale College football player.
I found this blurb from the Sporting News on Andre Holmes’ draft prospectus:
“Hillsdale College WR Andre Holmes jumped off the film last year when we were scouting Hillsdale OT Jared Veldheer, a third-round pick of the Raiders who already has become a solid NFL left tackle.
Holmes (6-4, 203) performed even better in ’10, catching 104 passes for 1,368 yards and 11 touchdowns. Holmes is a tall receiver with explosive quickness and home-run speed who can turn short passes into big plays. He was more consistent in ’10, making big plays in key situations.
He certainly will be at least a late-round pick, but he could fly up boards in the spring with some standout pre-draft workouts.”
