Colts selected Ole Miss WR Donte Moncrief with the No. 90 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.
Moncrief (6-foot-2, 221) will be a 21-year-old rookie after becoming a day-one starter at Ole Miss as an 18-year-old true freshman. He finished his three-year career with 156 catches for 2,371 yards (15.2 YPR) and 20 touchdowns. Moncrief proceeded to shred the Combine, running 4.4-flat with a 39 1/2-inch vertical and highly explosive 11-foot broad jump. While he has physical traits of a Type-A No. 1 wideout, Moncrief is still learning to play to his size and has a tendency to body catch. He offers big long-term upside in the vertical game, but may need a year or two to get his NFL bearings. He'll have to compete with LaVon Brazill and Griff Whalen for a spot behind the top four receivers in Indy. The Colts are loaded at wideout for 2014. May 9 - 10:52 PM

ESPN's Todd McShay says Ole Miss WR Donte Moncrief is "one of the most impressive workout freaks that you've ever seen at the wide receiver position."

Moncrief entered the 2013 campaign as a probable first-round pick, but a down year and a ridiculous WR class has kicked him down the board a bit. "Moncrief did not play all that well this past year," McShay added. "But if you're a metrics guy, he's the first pick of the draft." That's because the 6-foot-2, 221-pounder, whom NFL Films' Greg Cosell has compared to Josh Gordon, runs a 4.40-second forty. Moncrief is ticketed for Day 2.

Ole Miss WR Donte Moncrief will work out for the Broncos.

Moncrief is a great size/speed prospect who has been lost in the shuffle a bit in a super deep WR class. He goes 6-foot-2, 221 pounds, and runs a 4.40-second forty. "Moncrief might be a possibility for the Broncos’ No. 31 pick in the first round," notes the Denver Post. "He is expected to be gone by the team’s No. 63 overall selection in the second round."

Ole Miss WR Donte Moncrief will work out for the Broncos and the Dolphins, according to NFL.com's Gil Brandt.

Moncrief is a big body (6'2/221 lbs) and timed fast (4.40 forty), although his final season at Ole Miss was not good. Sure he was stuck to the sideline too often, but he did not fight at the catch point on a consistent basis. Teams could take a stab at him in the early third-round.

Ole Miss WR Donte Moncrief visited the Steelers on Tuesday.

Moncrief had a down 2013, which can partially be attributed to poor quarterback play, but Moncrief did not help himself in contested situations. The Ole Miss receiver surprised with outstanding workout numbers, posting a 4.40 forty at 6'2/221 lbs, as well as a 39 1/2" vertical.

Scouts will closely monitor the output of Ole Miss WR Donte Moncrief at the NFL's Scouting Combine.

"Ole Miss coaches raved about his freakish athleticism, but he had only a so-so junior season before deciding to turn pro," wrote NFL.com's Mike Huguenin. "He has intriguing size, and if he runs well in the 40 -- most expect a sub-4.4 time -- it will bode well for his draft status." The 6-foot-3, 226-pounder collected 59 catches for 938 yards and six touchdowns last season. He's more talented than his collegiate production suggests, the primary reason that evaluators are hoping for excellent test numbers.

Ole Miss junior WR Donte Moncrief has declared for the NFL draft.

"After meeting with Coach Freeze and looking at all available information, my family and I have decided that I will declare for the draft," Moncrief said. He entered the year with plenty of buzz, but Moncrief seemed to be attached to the sideline which limited his productivity and impact.
Jan 5 - 2:20 PM

Ole Miss junior WR Donte Moncrief had 6 catches for 113 yards and a touchdown in Monday's 25-17 Music City Bowl victory over Georgia Tech.

Moncrief's 28-yard touchdown reception from QB Bo Wallace in the second quarter gave the Rebels a 13-7 halftime lead. The 6-foot-3, 226-pound junior posted 59 catches for 938 yards and six touchdowns this season. Moncrief suggested last month that head coach Hugh Freeze is the key to whether or not he chooses to enter the 2014 NFL Draft. "Whatever he says, I'm going to go with it," Moncrief said at the time. For the record, draft insider Tony Pauline reported in November that Moncrief will enter the draft.

Ole Miss junior WR Donte Moncrief suggested head coach Hugh Freeze is the key to whether or not he chooses to enter the 2014 NFL Draft.

"It's just whatever coach Freeze thinks is best, I could come back or leave. Whatever he says, I'm going to go with it," Moncrief said. Draft insider Tony Pauline has gone on record saying Moncrief will enter the draft. The junior is an impressive player, but his production has dipped this season.

Ole Miss junior WR Donte Moncrief will enter the 2014 NFL Draft, according to draft insider Tony Pauline.

Pauline cites multiple sources that have told him as much. "Moncrief himself thinks he is going to rather early... I think he is more of a second day guy," Pauline said on his podcast. The non-seniors will really bring a lot of talent to this position during the draft process. It hasn't been a great year form Moncrief production-wise, but his talent did not disappear into thin air.

Ole Miss junior WR Donte Moncrief caught seven passes for 149 yards and a touchdown in the school's 34-24 win over Arkansas.

Moncrief's 52 yard touchdown was a thing of beauty, taking a seven yard curl to the house after making the first man miss. He has been limited this season, but Moncrief has good talent and could declare for May's draft.

ESPN's Mel Kiper dropped Ole Miss junior WR Donte Moncrief from the No. 9 prospect overall to No. 19 following his week one performance against Vanderbilt.

Moncrief only managed five receptions for 56 yards against Vandy, but we think it is a bit early to drastically change rankings. "He was really frustrated in the game against Vandy, but credit the Commodores and Andre Hal," Kiper writes. "Moncrief has the look of a down-the-field threat who can use his size and good feel and body position to beat defenders for the ball, but he can also really chop his feet, cut and make people miss underneath. Hits his stride quickly for such a big player." The Rebel is now the No. 3 receiver on Kiper's big board.

Ole Miss junior WR Donte Moncrief caught five passes for 56 yards Thursday against Vanderbilt.

Scouts Inc.'s Todd McShay's top draft-eligible receiver from the SEC, Moncrief was rather quiet in his 2013 debut. The junior will have to acclimate to playing opposite elite WR prospect Laquon Treadwell, but we don't expect that to be an issue. If Ole Miss receives consistent play from quarterback Bo Wallace -- who was allowed to throw the ball 47 times against Vandy -- then both Moncrief and Treadwell will have huge seasons.

Ole Miss junior WR Donte Moncrief did leave the door open for this being his last year with the Rebels.

"It's in the back of my mind, kind of. But right now, the main thing is getting my team some wins, just staying healthy, just staying focused," Moncreif said during SEC media days. "It's according to how the season goes. If I feel like it's a good time to come out, I'll come out. If not, I'll come back and be a Rebel and be ready to play another season." Scouts Inc.'s Todd McShay listed Moncrief as the top draft-eligible receiver from the SEC.

Scouts Inc.'s Todd McShay believes Ole Miss junior Donte Moncrief is the top draft-eligible WR from the SEC.

"Moncrief isn't exceptional in any one area, but he has a very good skill set across the board," McShay writes. "He can separate from coverage, shows good ball skills and has big-play ability." The evaluator does admit that Alabama's Amari Cooper is likely the top target in the conference, but he is only a sophomore and not draft-eligible.
