When the dust had finally settled from last week's annual pro day at UCLA, one player emerged as the clear winner: Nelson Rosario. For CSR members who have been clamoring for a tall, play-making receiver, this may be your man. Rosario measured in at an impressive 6' 5 1/2", and carried his 230 lbs quite well when he ran a 4.55 forty in what was reported to be a stiff head wind. He also showed his outstanding leaping ability by posting a 36.5 vertical and 10' 1" broad jump.

Despite his excellent size and adequate speed, Rosario was a bit inconsistent throughout his college career, but that didn't stop him from putting up his finest numbers at UCLA in his fourth and final season. He finished that senior campaign with 64 receptions and 1,161 yards receiving, for a gaudy 18.1 average per catch.
Before you begin thinking of all the reasons why you wouldn't want this guy, consider the fact that this prospect could be available in the 6th or 7th round. Personally, this seems tempting because it gives us a tall, developmental wide receiver with plenty of room to grow. Rosario may not have the upside of a similar, yet faster prospect like Stephen Hill, but he would represent less risk, and I could live with that just fine. Be sure to watch the series of videos I posted after the jump and let me know what you think in the poll that follows.
