Dante Love, WR, Ball State

Love was a high school QB who has completed just three passes during his college career. He switched to WR after arriving to Ball State where he played as a true freshman in 2005 (catching 19 passes for 185 yards - 9.7 avg - with 3 TD). He also rushed for 89 yards on 19 carriers and returned 22 kicks for 546 yards (24.8) and a TD. In 2006, Love started seven of the team's twelve games, recording 52 receptions for 735 yards (14.1) and 4 TD. He also rushed for 83 yards on 19 carriers (4.4) and a TD, returning 13 kickoffs for 216 yards (16.6). Love was named to the Second Team All MAC unit and really exploded in his junior campaign. He started eleven of thirteen games in 2007 catching 100 passes for 1,398 yards (14.0) and 10 TD. He went on to rush for 203 yards on 35 carriers (5.8) and 1 TD. He also returned 48 kicks for an impressive 1,100 yards (22.9) and 1 TD. That season he was named to the Conference's First Team squad. Has one of the best sets of hands in this WR Class. Moves well in the open field. A terrific kick returner. Route running is surprisingly polished. A hard worker who likes to eat playbooks. Small. Will get pushed around. Dislikes contact. Runs slower than his clocked time (4.45). Love is a very interesting prospect. He is a more polished receiver than many above him in this Class, but his size is a major drawback. He is probably a middle to late rounder as of this moment. He will make an NFL team but probably as a returner at first.
