Marquis Maze, WR, Alabama

Maze was a stellar four-year performer at Alabama. The speedy wideout improved each season, catching 11 passes as a freshman, 31 as a sophomore, 38 as a junior, and 56 as a senior in 2011. He caught 627 yards worth of balls last season and scored one touchdown. For his career he had eight touchdown receptions and he averaged at least 11.2 yards per catch in each of this four seasons (including 16.9 in 2009). Maze helped lead the Crimson Tide to the 2011 National Champion, as the team avenged its loss to LSU from earlier in the year. Maze's value cannot be underrated, as he was way less than 100 percent in the loss to the Tigers and that was arguably the biggest reason for 'Bama's lone loss of the season.

The Birmingham, AL native has been measured at 5'8'' and 180 pounds. He is generously listed at 5'10'' by Alabama and other media outlets believe it, but 5'8'' is certainly much closer to the truth. Regardless of his exact height, it's obvious that Maze will be doing his damage at the next level with speed. He generally runs in the 4.9s of the 40-yard dash and he has been clocked as fast as 4.38 from that distance. Maze was also a standout kick returner at Alabama and he will surely be able to make contributions in that department in the NFL, as well. He is never going to be any kind of red-zone target, but Maze can be dangerous in the slot and he should also get a few carries out of the backfield like he did in college. Expect Maze to get drafted in April, albeit toward the end of the proceedings.
