Overview

Hass is one of college football's elite receivers. The former walk-on has proceeded to shatter school and conference season records the past two years.

Hass is a classic blue chip talent with a blue-collar work ethic. Hass was a three-year letterman and two-year starter at wide receiver at Jesuit High School, where he also lettered twice in baseball as a third baseman. He had 79 receptions for 1,739 yards and 21 touchdowns as a senior, earning The Oregonian's 4A Player of the Year honor. He also earned USA Today Oregon Player of the Week once.

Despite his impressive statistics, he was not recruited coming out of high school, but emerged from 2003 fall camp with a scholarship and a starting job for the Beavers. Upon joining Oregon State as a walk-on in 2001, Hass spent his first season on the scout team, followed by a 2002 campaign that saw him record eight tackles (7 solos) on special teams.

After catching the eyes of coach Mike Riley in 2003 preseason action, Hass was not only awarded a scholarship, but was also given a starting job. He lined up at split end for injured James Newson vs. Sacramento State before shifting to flanker for the rest of the year. Hass went on to rank third on the team with 44 receptions that year, gaining 1,013 yards (23.0 avg) with seven touchdowns while also recording six solo tackles on special teams. He made first downs with 35 of his 44 catches, with 10 coming on third-down plays. Seventeen of his receptions led to OSU touchdown drives and three more set up Beaver field goals. His average of 23.0 yards per catch set a school record and his 1,013 yards rank fourth on OSU's single-season list.

Hass was named Associated Press All-America third-team as he led the Pac-10 Conference and ranked third in the nation with an average of 114.9 yards per game receiving in 2004. He set school season records with 86 receptions for 1,379 yards (16.0 avg), topping the previous marks of 81 for 1,306 yards by James Newson in 2003. He made first downs with 68 of his catches, with 20 coming on third-down plays. He registered seven touchdown catches and set up 24 other touchdowns, along with six more drives that produced OSU field goals.

In his final season, Hass led the nation in receiving yardage, yards receiving per game and first down catches. He had 90 receptions for a Pac-10 Conference and school-record 1,532 yards (17.0 avg) and six touchdowns. He also ranked second in the country with an average of 8.18 catches per game. Of his 90 touches, 67 resulted in first downs, including 16 on third-down plays. He also made six solo tackles.

In 36 games on offense, Hass started 35 times. He holds school career records with 220 receptions for 3,924 yards, surpassing James Newson (213 for 3,572 yards, 2000-03). His average of 17.0 yards per catch is a school record and his 20 touchdown catches tied Newson for the Oregon all-time mark. He joins Newson (1,284 in 2002 and 1,306 in 2003) and Vern Burke (1,007 in 1962) as the only players in school history to gain over 1,000 yards receiving in a single season. He's the first player in Pac-10 Conference history to gain over 1,000 yards receiving in a season three times in a career.

Hass also excelled on special teams, collecting 20 tackles (19 solos) while returning a fumble recovery 14 yards. He is the only player in school history to gain over 200 yards receiving in a game more than once in a career (four players did it once), accomplishing that feat three times (2004 vs. Boise State and 2003 vs. Stanford and Southern California).

Analysis

Positives: Has a big, muscular frame with a long torso and arms, good bubble, thick thighs and calves and excellent body control and change of direction agility … Shows no wasted motion in his initial step off the ball and while he lacks blazing speed, he is quick to get in and out of his breaks … Defeats press coverage with his hand extension and strength, showing the leg drive needed to break arm tackles … Precise route runner who does a very good job of sinking his hips working out of his cuts … Very alert on the field, doing a nice job of maintaining body control and balance to keep his feet in bounds along the sidelines … Has the separation agility to get open and settle in the soft spot of the zone … Does an excellent job of securing the ball and using his body to shield it from defenders, showing no wasted motion turning to head downfield … His ability to elude coverage underneath presents a good passing lane for the quarterback … Shows no fear extending for the ball in traffic and is very willing to compete for the ball … Times his leaps to get to the ball at its highest point … Has enough of a second gear to get on top of vertical routes and the leg drive to run through defenders … One of his best assets is his hand/eye coordination, as he rarely ever body catches or double catches the ball … Makes proper body adjustments to get to off-target throws, getting his feet down while showing the hip wiggle to elude his defender in the short zone.

Negatives: More quick than fast, having to build to top speed rather than explode coming off the snap … Better second level cut blocker, as he does not have the ideal upper body strength to sustain blocks for long when operating in-line … Won't win many foot races in the open, but has the hip swerve and head fakes to push a defender out of his backpedal.

Hass is a big, physical route runner with excellent hands and ball concentration skills. He has a blue-collar work ethic and is highly respected by his teammates, coaching staff and opponents. He has a thick, muscular frame with long arms, good bubble and large hands. He has a long, fluid stride with good turnover and the ability to move his feet quickly. He flashes above average route agility and uses his hand extension very well to defeat press coverage. He transitions into and out of his cuts very well, and for a player of his size he shows enough burst to separate in the short area.

He cuts with precision and has the ability to easily adjust to a poorly thrown ball. He is fearless working in traffic, showing excellent ball concentration skills and the ability to extend and pluck the ball away from the body. He is a natural hands catcher who might not have awesome leaping ability, but times his jumps well to get to the ball at its high point. Hass might not be able to elude tight coverage downfield, but he has the size and leg drive to power through arm tackles and has the run instincts to get extra yardage after the catch.

Hass easily finds the open spots in the zone, doing an excellent job of sitting down, sliding and settling into the soft areas. He makes very good ball adjustments and is a very strong runner who seems to come alive with the ball in his hands. He is precise in his deep routes and shows great ability to leverage defenders when he properly sinks his hips and makes his cuts with no wasted movements. He is very determined to get to the ball in a crowd. There is no gather in his transition and Hass looks very sharp going in and out of his breaks.

Hass is a capable cut blocker who takes proper angles to neutralize linebackers in the second level. He could use more upper body strength in order to sustain his blocks longer when blocking at the line of scrimmage. Still, he is quite effective at blowing up free safeties on crack blocks and he shows the competitive fire to position and pester when asked to block for the ground game. Teams looking for a chain mover in the Hines Ward (Pittsburgh), Ed McCaffrey (ex-Denver) mold are sure to keep Hass in mind come draft day.
