5 late round wide receiver prospects for the Cleveland Browns
By Joseph Cantz
Hasise Dubois, Virginia
Hasise Dubois has received very little press, which can be forgiven based on how loaded this incoming receiver class is shaping up to be. Still though, a guy who is the only eligible draft prospect in the country to be targeted at least 100 times without recording a drop should be getting at least somewhat of a look.
Dubois’ name does not pop up often in projections, even in late rounds. There will be a team that gets a pair of dependable hands for dirt cheap. On top of his catching ability, Dubois is a polished route runner. What he may lack in quickness he makes up for in smooth fakes and crisp breaks in his routes all the while providing a big target for his quarterback.
If a throw was slightly off, there was little concern. Dubois boasts a wide catch radius; just get it to his spot and there’s a good chance of a completion. As mentioned earlier, he isn’t the fastest guy on the field. Whoever takes him will have to take advantage of his technique to create catching windows.
He could make a living as a slot receiver who works the middle of the field against slower linebackers and safeties, where his technical ability to separate could really shine. Either way, don’t be surprised if Dubois’ name pops up more often soon.
