Andrei Iosivas NFL Draft Profile

  • Position: Wide Receiver
  • School: Princeton
  • Year: Senior

Iosivas attend the Punahou School (K-12) in Honolulu, Hawaii. After graduating high school, he chose to continue his education at Princeton.

Iosivas was a track and field superstar who entered college quite raw as a football player. But the kid can fly. He ran the fastest 60m (6.71) in the NCAA heptathlon at the 2022 NCAA Indoor Championships.

As a freshman, Iosivas wasn’t even on Princeton’s active roster. Instead, he played in junior varsity games and participated in practice, improving his skills as a wide receiver.

During his second year at Princeton, Iosivas finally saw some actual game action. He appeared in nine games, catching 18 passes for 263 yards and 4 touchdowns.

Unfortunately, Iosivas was unable to progress in what would’ve been his junior year due to COVID, as Princeton’s entire 2020 football season was canceled. As a result, Iosivas chose to take a gap year.

After returning to school in 2021, Iosivas picked up right where he left off. He caught 41 passes for 703 yards and five touchdowns.

As a senior (but technically his redshirt junior season), Iosivas continued to progress. He recorded 66 receptions for 943 yards and seven scores.

Iosivas caught at least five passes in eight of his 10 games played. He posted four 100-yard outings, three of which went over 150 yards.

Overall, Iosivas finished his college career with 125 receptions for 1,909 yards and 16 touchdowns.

Tony Pauline’s Scouting Report for Andrei Iosivas

Strengths: Exceptional athlete who has shown a lot of progress in his game over the past two seasons. Quickly releases off the line of scrimmage, sells routes, and tracks the pass in the air. Adjusts to errant throws, extends his hands, and makes the reception away from his frame.

Plays heads-up football, shows good route discipline, and stays with the action. Comes across the middle of the field and easily adjusts to make the reception in stride on crossing patterns.

Weaknesses: Lacks the elite burst and second gear. Average run-after-the-catch ability. Must improve his route running and tends to round off breaks. Not a strong blocker.

Overall: A former decathlete, Iosivas has been very productive over the past two years at Princeton and comes with a large upside. He must improve the details of his game, yet he’s a developmental prospect who could make a roster this fall as a fifth receiver.

Princeton WR Andrei Iosivas Current Draft Projection

On Tony Pauline’s Big Board, Iosivas ranked 263rd overall and is projected to be drafted in the seventh round. With a 3.28 grade, he is Pauline’s WR40 in this class.

This year’s wide receiver class features plenty of depth but lacks the true high-end talent we’ve been spoiled with in recent years. That could open the door for more later-round selections to work their way onto NFL rosters. With that said, Iosivas has a whole lot working against him.

College production is the most predictive indicator of NFL success. While Iosivas’ production improved each year, he played for an Ivy League school in the FCS. The level of competition was far less than even the weakest of FBS programs.

When evaluating FCS or Division II players, we really need to see absolute dominance. We didn’t get that from Iosivas.

Additionally, Iosivas is five years removed from high school and only has three years of college football experience. His path to the NFL certainly isn’t the most conventional.

The good news for Iosivas is his incredible speed, especially for his size, makes him an appealing project for NFL general managers. He can also contribute as a returner and on special teams in general.

It’s always a challenge for Day 3 picks. It’s even more of a challenge for Day 3 picks from FCS schools.

If Iosivas is indeed around the 40th wide receiver selected, it’s more likely he will get cut in training camp than make an NFL roster. However, his size and speed could give him opportunities to prove to NFL teams that he’s worthy of a roster spot.
