06/20/14 - Arizona State's top NFL Draft-eligible prospects to watch in 2014: 1. WR Jaelen Strong, RS Junior...Strong is aptly named as he is a well-built receiver whose height, body control and leaping ability make him a difficult matchup for cornerbacks. He runs hard and forces defenders to take him to the ground, fighting through arm tackles to generate good yardage after the catch. His size makes him equally effective on the perimeter (where he excels on back-shoulder fades) and when dragging across the middle. Strong accelerates quickly off the line, making him an effective vertical threat.
Strong's talent is undeniable but he's far from a finished product. He generally catches the ball with his hands and can make the dazzling acrobatic reception but fights the ball on occasion and needs to do a better job of extending his arms fully to high-point passes and take full advantage of his height advantage. He's going to need to sharpen up his route-running, as well, as too often he gets by on simply posting up defenders at this level. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
06/20/14 - Arizona State's top NFL Draft-eligible prospects to watch in 2014: 1. WR Jaelen Strong, RS Junior...Choosing the Sun Devils over offers from a number of other high profile programs such as South Carolina, Miami and Nebraska, Strong exploded onto the FBS-scene in 2013, hauling in 75 passes for 1,122 yards and seven touchdowns to earn Second Team All-Pac-12 honors as a JUCO-transfer (Pierce College). Strong only played one year at Pierce (67 passes for 1,263 yards and 15 touchdowns in 10 games) and therefore has two more years of athletic eligibility for the Sun Devils. A third highly productive season in a row, however, could make the 2014 season Strong's last at the amateur level, as Strong is currently NFLDraftScout.com's No. 3-rated WR in the 2016 class. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
