Raiders selected Florida WR/KR Andre Debose with the No. 221 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.
Debose (6'0/190) was billed as the next Percy Harvin when he committed to Florida, but battled injuries throughout his career and finished with just 30 catches. He did bring back a school record four kickoffs for touchdowns though and can run in the 4.3s. It's a nice flier pick for the Raiders. Sat, May 2, 2015 05:23:00 PM

Per CBS Sports' Dane Brugler, Florida WR Andre Debose ran the 40-yard dash at his pro day in the high 4.3s.

Debose, a former five-star recruit who leaves school as Florida's all-time leader in kick return touchdowns (four), has "NFL potential as a return man," according to Brugler. TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline even suggested back in October that Debose "could be looked at like a guy like Devin Hester when he came out of Miami." The prospect is hoping that skill will earn him a Day 3 call. "His career didn't quite go as planned due to injuries, but his speed will give him a shot to earn a role at the next level," Brugler wrote.

Florida redshirt junior WR Andre Debose "could be looked at like a guy like Devin Hester when he came out of Miami," according to TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline.

"He could be looked at like a guy like Devin Hester when he came out of Miami. He wasn't really graded at a position, but he was looked at as a sensational special teams guy. He has return skills, so he will get consideration as far as the Combine and camp invites," Pauline told Inside the Gators. Pauline adds that the 5-foot-11, 191-pound DeBose has "fallen off the map from his great season a couple of years ago. He came into the season not even listed with a grade by the scouting services." The former five-star recruit, has been a disappointment as a WR, but should still remain a weapon on special teams moving forward.

Florida redshirt senior WR Andre Debose was thrown into a window during a violent dispute on Saturday night, according to the Gainesville Police Department.

The police initially said that Debose himself had thrown a person through a window. Police spokesman Ben Tobias posted a correction and an apology to the Gators wideout on social media. The police department now states that Debose tried multiple times to break up the fight. Debose did not sustain an injury in the altercation. "He told me it was an eye-opening experience," Florida coach Will Muschamp said on Monday. "He admittedly said, 'Coach, I was in a bad place and shouldn't have been there, and I didn't know all of the people that were involved.' And I just told him, 'That's where you've got to be careful.'"

Florida redshirt senior WR Andre Debose allegedly threw a person through a window during an altercation on Saturday night.

Details from the incident are scant and it's unclear at present if DeBose has been arrested or if he faces charges. UF has not commented. DeBose was granted a sixth season of eligibility because he missed the 2013 campaign with a torn ACL. The former five-star recruit has been a disappointment as a WR, but should remain a weapon in the return game if he's on the roster in August.

Florida head coach Will Muschamp said redshirt senior WR Andre Debose will return in 2014 for his sixth season with the school.

Debose has missed time since August with a torn ACL and the receiver also missed the entirety of his 2009 season due to a knee surgery. After breaking out early in his career, Debose has failed to take the next step. He likely won't be relied on as a major threat next year.

Florida redshirt senior WR Andre Debose will miss the 2013 season after tearing his ACL, according to Nick de la Torre or Gator Country.

Debose left Tuesday night's practice with a "tweaked knee," but obviously the diagnosis was much worse. Florida coaches reportedly had high hopes for the receiver who had yet to live up to expectations. Debose will have to apply for a sixth season of eligibility if he wants to return to Florida in 2014. This could mean corner Loucheiz Purifoy sees even more snaps on offense.

Florida junior WR Andre Debose will miss Saturday's game with a hyper-extended knee.

This will be Debose's second straight missed game. The junior is the team's top kick and punt returner, however, he has been lost when on the field at wide receiver.

Florida junior WR Andre Debose has been demoted from his return duties in favor of sophomore CB Marcus Roberson.

Debose has returned four punts for 46 yards and two kickoffs for 61 yards thus far in 2012. On the other hand, Roberson has yet to take a return during his collegiate career, but coaches apparently have faith in his ability.

A university news release indicates Florida sophomore receiver Andre Debose, who was mentioned in the Miami scandal report, will not face any eligibility issues.

The University of Florida consulted with the NCAA, which indicated Debose and offensive lineman Matt Patchan do not have eligibility concerns after they were mentioned in the report as having received improper benefits. The sophomore Debose was an electrifying kick returner last season, averaging 28.0 yards and taking two back for touchdowns. After catching 10 passes last season, his responsibilities in that area could grow.
