 Draft Scout Snapshot: DS Rating on 8/24/08: #30 WR, #239/750 Overall, Projected Rnd: 7
2007: 13 GP; 11 GS; Rush: 1-(-11)-(-11)-0; Rec: 47-633-13.5-4; A three-year starter, Butler got the opening nod 12 times in 2007 and made 47 receptions for a team-high 633 yards (13.5) and four touchdowns. He made a touchdown catch in each of the last three contests of 2007 and his 47 receptions were tied for No. 10 on the school season list. He was on the field for 672 snaps in 2007, led by 71 at Indiana. The intelligent and instinctive Butler has joined classmates Jordan Norwood and Derrick Williams in becoming the first trio of Nittany Lions to each make 40 or more catches in a season, accomplishing the feat the past two years...2006: 13 GP; 12 GS; Rush: 1-(-3)-(-3)-0; Rec: 48-637-13.3-2; A starter in 12 games, Butler was the Nittany Lions' leading receiver for the second consecutive season. He made 48 receptions for 637 yards (13.3) and two touchdowns to earn honorable-mention All-Big Ten recognition. His 48 catches were tied for sixth all-time in a season at Penn State. He was third on the squad with 634 all-purpose yards...2005: 12 GP; 0 GS; Rush: 1-6-6-0; Rec: 37-691-18.7-9; It was a breakout season for Butler, who led Penn State with 37 receptions for 691 yards and nine touchdowns, tied for fourth-highest overall on the school season list. He broke four school freshman records, including season receptions (37), receiving yards in a game (125 vs. Wisconsin) and season (691) and TD catches (nine). His 18.7 yards per catch average was tops among players with 10 or more receptions and he posted 11 catches of 20 yards or longer (seven for TDs). For his efforts, he was named a third-team Freshman All-American by The Sporting News and earned a spot on TSN's Freshman All-Big Ten team. Butler also was an honorable-mention All-Big Ten choice...2004: Redshirt Season.

Post-Draft Outlook:
COULD SURPRISE: Penn State receiver Deon Butler. At 5-10, 181 pounds, Butler is small. But he ran a 4.38-second 40-yard dash at the combine and finished his career at Penn State as the school's all-time receptions leader, breaking former Seahawk Bobby Engram's record. Scouts compare Butler to Engram, and believe he has the quickness and hands to be a good slot receiver in the league. A closer look at the Seahawks' picks: Round 3/91 - Deon Butler, WR, 5-10, 182, Penn State...Butler finished as the all-time leader at Penn State with 179 catches, breaking the record of 167 set by former Seahawk Bobby Engram. Some have compared the speedy Butler to Engram in terms of his ability to work the slot position and get in and out of breaks. - by The Sports Xchange
