Ashley Lelie 
SELECTED BY DENVER , ROUND 1, PICK 19, OVERALL PICK 19                            MORE INFO
WR | (6-2, 197, 4.4) | HAWAII | COLLEGE STATS 
By Pro Football Weekly

Notes: Three-sport athlete (football, basketball and track) in high school. Redshirted in 1998. Started seven times in '99 and caught 36 passes for 518 yards and two touchdowns. Second-team All-Western Athletic Conference pick in 2000, when he caught 74-1,110-11. All-WAC and received some All-America notice in '01, when he snatched 83-1,713-19.

Positives: Is tall and uses his height advantage well. Exceptional athlete with outstanding body control and very good ball skills. Adjusts to the off-line throw well and can make the circus catch. Can and will go up and grab the ball at its highest point. Has deceptive speed and a stride that eats up ground. Is a deep and home-run threat. Has improved dramatically every year under head coach June Jones and played in a pro-style offense. Made clutch, great and big plays to help Hawaii stun Fresno State last fall. Superproductive in 2001 and was very good in '00 as well.

Negatives: Does not always do a good job of getting quick separation. Is more fast and fluid than sudden and explosively quck. Is not that aggressive in a crowd and can be muscled and jostled. Has too many drops all over the field for a player with his hands, because he does not always watch the ball into his hands and at times will peek to see where the defender is. Is not a polished route runner and is mostly a vertical receiver. Played in the WAC, an offensive league where many defensive teams are very mediocre and very few have top defensive backs.

Summary: A terrific receiver who has the tools to really excel on the next level. Three times the football player Walter Murray (second-round pick out of Hawaii in 1986, for whom the Redskins gave up their first-round pick in '87 to draft) was.
