    Strong Points: Very good size and long arms for a wide receiver. Very good athlete with great speed and change of direction. Good hands and a large receiving radius. Good route runner who is able to create separation on a consistent basis. Very good runner after the catch, showing speed and elusiveness. Used as a kickoff returner in the past. Two-year starter.

    Weak Points: Not a very good blocker. Will have some concentration drops. Doesn't run a very complex route tree.

    The Way We See It: Campbell was a very productive inside receiver for Ohio State. Despite his height and length, he was always aligned in the slot in the Buckeyes' spread attack. He ran mostly bubble screens, crossing routes and hitches, with some seam routes sprinkled in. The go-to receiver for Ohio State last year with 90 receptions and 12 TDs, he runs good routes and separates regularly with quick-cutting ability. Many of Campbell's catches were of the short variety, but with his burst and run skills he is able to turn them into long gains. He gets his open-field running ability in part from his RB experience in high school. Campbell can play inside or outside at the NFL level but will need to develop his route-running ability. He should also contribute as a returner while he develops. His combine workout was off the charts, which will get Campbell drafted early at a speed-driven position.

    Hub Arkush: It seems like Ohio State sends at least one Parris Campbell clone to the show every year. Like fellow alum Will Fuller, he is 6-0, but he's 20 pounds bigger at 205, and with a ton of speed to burn he may even be faster than Fuller, clocking a 4.31 40 at the Combine. Campbell is raw as a receiver and needs a lot of work on his routes, but he can be a plug-and-play rookie on jet sweeps, quick slants and bubble screens, with the potential to be a nuclear weapon in the slot. The biggest concern with these Buckeye receivers is it seems half become studs at the next level and the other half superior athletes who lack what it takes to be great football players. Campbell clearly has elite traits.

    Best Fit: Cardinals, 49ers, Lions, Broncos, Bills, Ravens, Colts

    Red Flags: Limited route tree. Concentration/lack of focus

    NFL Comp: Will Fuller
