Player Overview

A three-star WR recruit, Street received attention from mostly MAC schools, but committed to Pittsburgh once they offered him a scholarship the summer before his senior year in high school.

After redshirting in 2009, he started four games in 2010 and became a full-time starter as a sophomore in 2011, leading the team with 53 catches and 754 yards. Street again led Pitt in receiving as a junior with personal-bests in catches (73) and yards (975), earning Second Team All-Big East honors. He was the secondary option as a senior in 2013 behind true freshman stud Tyler Boyd, but tied for the team-lead in touchdown catches (7) and averaged 16.7 yards per catch.

Street has an expansive resume and was the go-to target for Pitt the last few seasons, lining up in the slot and outside the numbers - was effective in the short, intermediate and deep levels. He has an athletic frame with the height/length combination to match up well in the NFL, but needs to consistently play up to his measureables and develop his strength. Street projects as one of the top-5 senior WRs in this draft class and early day three selection.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Good-sized target with long arms to catch the ball well away from his frame...natural plucker with soft hands to catch everything thrown his way - nice job locating and highpointing to come down with off-target throws...well-built with natural body control, using his size well, working the middle of the field and holding his own in traffic - terrific hand-eye coordination...long-strider with adequate build-up vertical speed...shows balance after the catch to pick up extra yards...coachable and known as a reliable teammate - senior captain...athletic bloodlines - father (Kutztown) and uncle (Tennessee State) both played college football...productive resume with 40 career starts and three 50+ reception seasons - school's all-time leading pass-catcher with 202 grabs.

WEAKNESSES: Lean-muscled and needs to spend more time in the weight room to develop his functional strength...will be pushed around by smaller defenders and needs to shed the "soft" label...tight lower body and struggles to create much separation in his breaks...doesn't have any suddenness as a route runner and will struggle vs. press coverage...needs to show better creativity and wiggle as a ballcarrier to be a consistent threat after the catch...needs to stay focused for all four quarters and appears to have some mental lapses...lacks an ideal competitive temperament and too passive...some durability concerns, missing playing time in 2013 with nagging shoulder and ankle issues...character needs investigated after a Oct. 2012 incident when he was charged with one count of criminal conspiracy and simple assault after being accused of punching a student in the head - charges were reduced and he performed community service.

05/13/2014 - 2014 NFL DRAFT BEST VALUE PICK: DALLAS COWBOYS: Round 5/146 -- Devin Street, WR, 6-3, 198, Pittsburgh...Street is a big, athletic receiver who can high point the ball. There are concerns about his speed, but he was very productive in college. He played in 49 games during his collegiate career, starting 40 and totaling 202 receptions for 2,901 yards and 16 touchdowns. The Cowboys had a third-round grade on the playmaking receiver from Pittsburgh and got him in the fifth round. He will give them insurance for outside receivers Dez Bryant and Terrance Williams. He also can play inside. - The Sports Xchange
