Draft Scout Donte Moncrief News
11/11/13 - Mississippi's Donte Moncrief has most of the attributes expected of an elite receiver, including a 6-foot-3, 226-pound frame, breakaway speed and a pair of hands that rarely lets him down when catching the football. About the only thing missing is the ego. So when Moncrief's season started slowly, the soft-spoken junior didn't complain. He knew quarterback Bo Wallace would find him. Moncrief's time has come. He had 149 yards receiving and a touchdown on Saturday as Ole Miss beat Arkansas 34-24. It's the third time in five games he's had at least 100 yards receiving.
He said the emergence of the team's other receivers — including Laquon Treadwell and senior Ja-Mes Logan — has forced opponents to use more single coverage against him. "You can't double cover anybody now," Moncrief said. "That's easier for me. There are a lot of receivers on our team making big plays and that's exactly what we needed." Ole Miss (6-3) hosts Troy (5-5) on Saturday at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. It's the fifth straight home game for the Rebels, who can match their win total from last season by beating the Trojans.
Ole Miss is on a three-game winning streak and has emerged as one of the better passing teams in the Southeastern Conference. Wallace is fourth in the league with 2,392 passing yards, 14 touchdowns and five interceptions. Moncrief is second on the team with 41 catches, but first with 647 yards receiving and five touchdowns. Logan (35 catches, 496 yards, three TDs) and Treadwell (49 catches, 424 yards, three TDs) have also had productive seasons. - AP Sports
08/31/13 - ROB RANG'S 08/30/13 BIG BOARD: 31. WR Donte Moncrief, Mississippi (6-2, 224, 4.49)* -- Moncrief's thick frame, deceptive speed and smooth route-running make him a nightmare for cornerbacks. He does not possess the explosive moves of Southern Cal's Lee or Clemson's Watkins but might be a better player than either of them. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
08/26/13 - 2013 PRESEASON ALL-SEC SECOND TEAM (COACHES): WR - Donte Moncrief, Ole Miss,...Moncrief has been named preseason second team All-SEC by the league media, Phil Steele, Birmingham News, Athlon and Lindy’s, and is also on the Biletnikoff Award Watch List. The Raleigh, Miss., native tied a school record with 10 touchdown catches last year and racked up 66 receptions for 979 yards to rank among the SEC leaders. - Mississippi football
08/26/13 - PLAYERS TO WATCH IN 2013: WR Donte Moncrief became a sensation at the end of the season by carving up some of the best pass secondaries in the SEC. Still only a junior, Moncrief caught 66 passes for 979 yards and 10 touchdowns. His assault on the record books should continue. - The Sports Xchange
08/26/13 - TOP MISSISSIPPI PROSPECTS FOR THE 2014 NFL DRAFT: 1. WR Donte Moncrief (6-2, 224, 4.49)*...Moncrief's thick frame, deceptive speed and smooth route-running make him a nightmare for cornerbacks. He does not possess the explosive moves of Southern Cal's Marqise Lee or Clemson's Sammy Watkins but might be a better player than either of them. 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. Moncrief tracks the ball well and generally shows excellent hands (one drop vs. Texas), as well as the body control to make the dazzling grab. Moncrief is also cognizant in the running game, showing awareness and toughness as a downfield blocker.
Perhaps the only thing standing in Moncrief's way of becoming the first "skill-position" player from Mississippi to earn a first round draft selection since Eli Manning (No. 1 overall, 2004) is the question about his straight-line speed. Moncrief was not caught from behind on tapes viewed but the big-bodied receiver may not possess elite timed speed. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
