Draft Scout Jamison Crowder News
01/22/15 - 2015 Senior Bowl, Tuesday: Although he wasn't impressive during the weigh-ins, Duke's Jamison Crowder redeemed himself on the practice field Tuesday when it mattered and looked like the best receiver on the North squad. He has the athletic skill set and frame that draws comparisons to Saints 2014 first-round pick Brandin Cooks. Measuring 5-foot-8 and 174 pounds, Crowder doesn't have the size ideal for the NFL, but his short-area quickness and start/stop ability are above average, making defenders miss in space. He showed that burst on the practice field at Ladd-Peebles Stadium, beating press with his sudden quickness and creating space out of his breaks. And although he has tiny hands (8 3/8), Crowder, who is the ACC's all-time leader in catches, has natural ball skills to pluck away from his body with reliable hands. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
01/22/15 - 2015 Senior Bowl, Wednesday: Duke wide receiver Jamison Crowder again stood out as the most explosive pass catcher on offense for the North squad. His natural burst and route acceleration especially were impressive as he created separation, appearing to be a nightmare for defensive backs to cover in space. He does have a smaller catching radius, but for a player with such small hands (8 3/8 inches), Crowder has the focus and body control to make acrobatic catches look routine. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
11/17/14 - NOV 3 ACC RECEIVER OF THE WEEK: Jamison Crowder, Duke, Sr., WR, 5-9, 175, Monroe, N.C.,...Crowder caught nine passes for 165 yards and two touchdowns in Duke’s ACC road win at Pitt. Crowder’s touchdown receptions covered 38 and 45 yards, and he also caught a 27-yard pass on the next-to-last play of the first half to set up another Duke TD. Crowder averaged 18.33 yards per reception, with seven catches producing first downs against a Pitt squad that ranked first in the ACC in passing defense entering the week. He moved into second place on the ACC’s all-time list for pass receptions with 247, passing former Clemson standout Sammy Watkins (240). - ACC football
11/17/14 - NOV 10 ACC SPECIALIST OF THE WEEK: Jamison Crowder, Duke, Sr., PR, 5-9, 175, Monroe, N.C.,...Crowder snapped a 10-10 tie with a 52-yard punt return for a touchdown in Duke’s road game at Syracuse on Saturday, sparking the Blue Devils’ to a 27-10 win. Crowder finished the day with six punt returns for 106 yards (17.67 yards per return) to match the eighth-highest single-game total for punt return yardage in Duke history. He has now matched the school career record for punt returns for touchdowns (three) also held by Elmore Hackney (1935-37) and Jay Wilkinson (1961-63). Crowder added nine catches for 59 yards from his wide receiver position. - ACC football
11/11/14 - Say this for Duke star Jamison Crowder. He listens well to his coaches. With Syracuse pinned at its own goal line and getting ready to punt early in the fourth quarter of a tie game, Duke's coaches advised Crowder to be aggressive on the return. He was, racing 52 yards for the touchdown that gave Duke the lead for good, and the No. 22 Blue Devils rallied past the Orange 27-10 on Saturday. "Fortunately, we were able to get that spark in the fourth quarter," Crowder said. "It came late, but we were able to take the lead and get the win."
Crowder's return gave Duke a 17-10 lead with 12:45 to play and was a devastating turn for the inspired Orange, who had played the Blue Devils even for three quarters. Anthony Boone threw two touchdowns to Issac Blakeney, including a 54-yarder midway through the fourth quarter, and Ross Martin kicked two field goals for Duke (8-1, 4-1 Atlantic Coast Conference). Boone is now 18-1 as a starter in the regular season for Duke, which won its fourth straight and stayed on target to reach the ACC championship game. - AP Sports
