Scouting Report
Little was ruled ineligible for his entire senior season at North Carolina for receiving extra benefits - a development that surely diminished his draft value but also could make him a steal for some team in the middle or later rounds. He has been publicly apologetic about his mistake, and proved he stayed in top condition during his hiatus with a fantastic performance at the NFL combine. Little performed 27 reps in the bench press - three more than any other wide receiver. His 40.5-inch vertical leap ranked fourth at the position, while he also placed among the leaders in the 60-yard shuttle. As his bench press accomplishment indicates, Little is extremely strong for a wide receiver, and also provides a big target. While he doesn't possess the sort of speed needed to be a true deep threat, he does have a decent burst off the line. Little caught 62 passes for 724 yards and five touchdowns as a junior in 2009, concluding with the Meineke Car Care Bowl, where he scored the Tar Heels' only two TDs in a 19-17 loss to Pittsburgh. Little's game lacked some polish as a junior, so he will be a project for whichever team drafts him. However, his showing at the combine virtually ensures that he will get drafted.
