Maurice Purify, WR, Nebraska

When it comes to talent, there's no question about it with Purify. He was one of the top JUCO prospects in the country when he signed with Nebraska out of City College of San Francisco and backed it up in 2006, when he caught 34 passes for 630 yards and seven touchdowns for Nebraska's Cotton Bowl team. In 2007, Purify was one of the bright spots for Nebraska at the end of their disappointing 5-7 season, recording 24 catches for 402 yards and six touchdowns in the final three games to finish with 57 catches, 814 yards, and nine touchdowns, with eight of those nine scores coming in the last five games. Purify has terrific size, athleticism, and has good speed as well (he ran a 4.44 40 at Nebraska's Pro Day). However, the off-field issues are where the questions are with Purify. He was arrested twice during the summer of 2007 and was arrested in March, along with offensive lineman Carl Nicks, another NFL Draft prospect. He'll likely be a mid-round selection, at best, but if Purify gets in the right environment (and can stay out of trouble), this is a guy who could really be a success on the next level.
