Moncrief at 6’2″ 221 pounds, is built like a tall running back. He ran a 4.40 second 40-yard dash so the speed is there. He has become a 2nd or 3rd rounder before the combine. After the combine he has jumped to a 1st or 2nd. The biggest question was about his straight-line speed. Moncrief ran a 4.40 second 40 yard dash. So I believe the question has been answered with the fastest 40 time clocking at 4.33 seconds.
The biggest sell on Moncrief is not only that "he is sudden in his breaks, showing the ability to generate separation even against tight man coverage, and accelerates quickly, often leaving defenders in his dust on double-moves. Or he tracks the ball well and generally shows excellent hands as well as the body control to make the dazzling grab." "It's that Moncrief is also cognizant in the running game, showing awareness and toughness as a downfield blocker" With him and Bowe blocking down field for yep you know who Jamaal Charles. Either on a run play or screen pass.
Some might say he's a reach for a 1st round pick because he's a solid 2nd but I think not. Remember KC is 23 a lower 1st. Moncrief is listed as the top 7 of WR in the draft. With Lee from USC being 5 and Beckham being 4. But why wouldn't you go with Moncrief before them. Moncrief is taller by 2-3 inches, jumps higher by 2-3 inches and faster than those two. Well Beckham being faster by 0.07 seconds. Here is biggest difference is that Moncrief had to play against the SEC like Beckham but Beckham didn't have to play against LSU. All I know is that Denver Bronco have worked out Donte Moncrief and wouldn't be surprised if they use there 1st round pick on him. Broncos to Work Out Ole Miss WR Donte Moncrief
We all know that Manning has something to do with that. Watch the video and understand why Manning would want Donte Moncrief.
