Ourlads' Analysis:

2017 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about CHAD HANSEN: California, 6017 202 4.53. Junior entry from Fillmore, CA. One-year as a starter but had a breakout year in 2016. Transfer from Idaho State. Earned second-team All-Pac 12 honors last fall. A good size set of strong hands. Solid sized frame. Hands catcher. Will fight for 50/50 catch by squaring his shoulders and rebounding the ball. Tracks the ball downfield very naturally. Is a smooth long strider. Good straight line speed with ball in his hands. Has a good amount of leaping ability to make contested catches. Is tough to bring down after the catch. Makes good adjustments with his body while ball is in the air. Has surprising separation quickness after a couple of steps. Lacks top end speed and foot quickness. You would like to see him use his frame and box out the defense more. Shows lack of play strength at times. Doesn’t always keep a corner’s hands off during deep routes, squeezing drop zones for the quarterback. Needs route running work to be able to run full tree particularly the underneath breaking routes. Plays with some stiffness in his hips and in an upright fashion. Has a nice blend of size and speed to be an outside receiver. But also possesses enough burst and ability to run shorter routes off the tree if he works on some technique refinement. Complete enough prospect to be a day two pick and potential starter. 2016 stats: 92-1249, 13.6 ypr, 11 TD. OSR:23/60. Second/third round. (A-32 1/8, H-10 1/8, VJ-35, SS-4.15).
