News & Notes:
Didn’t fare well in the 40-yard dash at the combine, but showed good hands. … Unimpressive college stats due to LSU’s focus on the running game. … Averaged 18.1 yards per catch in 2011. … Savvy route-runner, good size. … Strong work ethic, willing to put in the time to get better. … Might lack the speed necessary to get past top CBs in the NFL.
What they’re saying about him:
Mike Detillier (mikedetillier.com): “Fall in love with the football player. Don’t fall in love with the workout guy. That workout guy is going to get your a– fired. That football player is going to help you win a lot of games. Rueben Randle is a football player.”
Ian R. Rapport (Bostonhearld.com): “Rueben Randle certainly didn’t hurt his stock by his performance at the combine. He’s still considered one of the top five receivers in the draft, likely to be taken late in the first round.”
