2020 NFL Draft Scouting Report
Donovan Peoples-Jones, WR, Michigan Wolverines

Career Snapshot
Three-year starter who was named Honorable Mention All-Big Ten in each of his final two seasons at Michigan. Made 47 catches for 612 yards and eight touchdowns as a junior in 2018. Caught 34 passes for 438 yards and six TDs and missed the first two games of the season with a lower-body injury in 2019.

Positives
Nice-sized receiver who flashes natural pass-catching skill. Fluid, nicely makes the reception in stride and displays soft hands. Tracks the ball in the air, gets vertical and effectively times receptions. Contorts his body, adjusts to the errant throw and looks the ball in. Uses his frame to shield away defenders and effectively extends to make the catch away from his frame.

Negatives
Displays limited quickness into breaks and rounds off routes. Occasionally lets the ball get inside him unnecessarily. Average quickness and plays to one speed.

Analysis
While Peoples-Jones has shown flashes of ability the past three seasons, his game has never taken off to the next level. He’s a solid wideout with return skill who could make it as a fourth receiver at the next level, but Peoples-Jones must improve the details of his position, and quickly produce to make an NFL roster.
