Draft Scout Brandon Kinnie News
04/23/12 - There are several factors working against Brandon Kinnie as the former Nebraska receiver looks forward to the NFL draft. Kinnie knows them all, too. He lacked attention-getting numbers as a senior, catching 22 passes — and scoring just once — after having twice as many receptions the year before. He was denied some valuable exposure that others received by not being invited to any postseason all-star games or the NFL Combine. He played a position at NU that has little to no history when it comes to producing NFL draftees and players. As much as Kinnie might appear to be a long shot, he refuses to acknowledge it and has gone through his pre-draft routine no less sure of himself or his chances than before. It takes some looking to find Kinnie on most lists of receiver rankings with the three-day draft set to begin Thursday night. The 6-foot-3, 218-pounder is not among the Top 50 on some. But Kinnie thinks he showed his speed at the Huskers' pro day last month — running 4.41 in the 40-yard dash — and made good impressions on teams with how he tested and carried himself. He got a chance to work out for New England coach Bill Belichick the following day, when Belichick was in Lincoln for the NU spring coaches clinic, and did the same for Kansas City on April 10. "The feedback's been good," Kinnie said. "Everybody said they were pleased with my ability and how I can move, and with my character. "All I pray is that I get a fair shot." - Rich Kaipust, The Omaha World-Herald
