    Prospect Profile: Chad Owens
    By TFY Draft Preview
    Date: Apr 3, 2005

    Chad Owens School: Hawaii
    Ht: 5-7.5 Wt: 183 40: 4.70 Year: 5Sr

    Bio: All-Conference special teams player as a senior after averaging 14.8 yards on 36 punt returns, bringing five back for touchdowns. Also led the team in receiving last year with 102/ 1,290/17. Junior receiving numbers included 85/ 1,134/9, which led the conference. Set numerous NCAA records as a return specialist.

    Positives: Consistent receiver that stands out returning punts. Fluid releasing off the line of scrimmage, consistently finds the clearing in defense and displays a good sense of timing. Stays focused throughout the action, shows good eye/hand coordination and makes the difficult over-theshoulder catch down the field. Possesses both soft and strong hands and has the ability to snatch the pass out of the air. Comes back to the ball and consistently makes himself an available target for the quarterback. Elusive and slippery returning punts or running after the reception.

    Negatives: Not a heavy-duty receiver who can take a pounding and hold onto the ball. Lacks deep speed and not beating defenders down the field. Easily brought down on initial contact.

    Analysis: Ultra productive in a passing offense, Owens is a feisty skill player, productive handling the ball. Projects as a fifth receiver in the NFL but must make his mark as a return specialist.
