Houston junior WR Deontay Greenberry snatched five catches for 36 yards in Friday's win over SMU.
Greenberry's production is down this season -- 59 catches for 653 yards and three touchdowns after leading the squad last year with 82 receptions for 1,202 yards and 11 touchdowns -- but much of that can be blamed on the Cougars' awful QB play. TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline graded him as a third-rounder in the preseason and wrote that Greenberry has "big potential," while CBS Sports' Dane Brugler wrote in June that he was intrigued by Greenberry's "NFL tools," but added "he needs a ton of work." Greenberry should return to school in 2015. Nov 30 - 3:41 PM

Houston junior WR Deontay Greenberry has "big potential," according to TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

The Cougars' star led the squad last year with 82 receptions for 1,202 yards and 11 touchdowns. "Greenberry, who I presently grade as a third rounder, has big time potential," the analyst wrote. "He’s not very big but shows vertical speed on the field and reliable hands." The former five-star recruit -- rated the No. 46 overall player and the No. 7 WR by Scout.com in the 2012 class -- has the attention of evaluators.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler is intrigued by Houston junior WR Deontay Greenberry's "NFL tools" but believes "he needs a ton of work."

"Houston WR Deontay Greenberry has intriguing NFL tools but despite the gaudy statistics, he needs a ton of work. Keep this JR on your radar," Brugler tweeted. Brugler mentioned in another tweet that Greenberry was "so raw in several areas on 2013 tape." The Cougars' prospect was the leading receiver last year with 82 receptions for 1,202 yards and 11 touchdowns. The former five-star recruit will definitely have the attention of evaluators, if he can show further development from his sophomore season.
