Notes:

Also played baseball and basketball as a prep, drawing mid-major offers on the hardwood. Was recruited as a quarterback and redshirted in 2007. Made the switch to receiver in the fall of ’08, seeing action in three games and catching one ball for 11 yards (11.0) and zero touchdowns. Also attempted three passes, completing one for 10 yards and throwing an interception. Played 12 games in ’09, starting five (four at flanker), and totaled 34-674-8 (19.8). Was bothered by a right thumb injury the second half of the season and did not play against Wisconsin. Started all 13 games at flanker in ’10, hauling in 83-861-8 (16.2) and rushing once for five yards. Led Iowa in receiving in ’11 after grabbing 82-1,315-12 (16.0) and rushing 6-58-0 (9.7) in 13 starts at wide receiver. Has two career fumbles. Was medically excluded from bench press at the Combine because of a right shoulder injury. 

Positives:

Big target with nice length. Large hands. Shows some quickness and flexibility off the line to avoid the jam. Excellent leaping ability (37-inch vertical). Big catching radius. Settles into zone windows. Deceptive vertical speed. Tracks very well over his shoulder. Uses his frame effectively. Has toughness and concentration to work inside. Very good ball skills and body control — confident hands catcher. Makes difficult and clutch catches. Has improved as a route runner. Durable and productive in a pro-style offense. Solid character.

Negatives:

Has build-up speed. Is a bit high-cut, which restricts his fluidity in and out of breaks. Average hip flexibility and twitch (shows on non-vertical routes vs. man coverage). Still honing his route running and could stand to improve his deception, crispness and sophistication. Average agility and run strength. Should be a more physical blocker than he is. Does not factor on special teams.

Summary:

High-cut with a thin lower body, McNutt is a converted quarterback with appealing size, leaping ability, body control and ball skills to be effective between the hashes, outside the numbers and in the red zone. Fits very well in a West Coast system and could develop into a dependable No. 2.
