Speaking of Later-Round Wide Receiver Prospects ...

As some of you know, I like to poke around trying to find hidden gem draft prospects for the Niners. Came across this guy in one of Rob Rang's blog posts ... WR Dale Moss of the South Dakota State Jackrabbits. 6'3.5" and 213#

In high school played WR on football team, G on basketball team, long-jumped on track team; all-state WR in football. In college, starting guard on basketball team for four years ... 7.6 ppg, 4.5 rpg, and led team (as a guard) in blocked shots and offensive rebounds. Decided that he wouldn't make it in the NBA, so decided to return to play football in his senior year only (2011-12) ... 10 games, 61 receptions, 949 yards, 6 TDs, 15.6 yards/reception.

Wait a minute! Four years of basketball and one year of football? Why are we talking about this guy? Here's why. Moss wasn't envited to the Combine, but SDS just held the Pro Day. Here is how Moss did in the underware olympics versus top WRs at Combine:

Reading from left to right -- 40 time, Verticle, Broad, 3-Cone, Short Shuttle

Blackmon -- 4.54 / -- / -- / -- / --

Floyd -- 4.47 / 36.5" / 10'2" / -- / --

Wright -- 4.45 / 38.5" / 10'1" / 6.93 / 4.18

Hill -- 4.36 / 39.5" / 11'1" / 6.88 / 4.48

Randle -- 4.55 / 31.0" / 10'1" / 6.99 / 4.36

Dale Moss -- 4.42 average* / 41.5" / 10'10" / 6.32 / 4.08

* Winds, 4.38 - 4.45

Rang thinks that he will be drafted in the fourth or fifth round. Don't know if any Niner scouts were present. Check him out on the net.
