Houston WR Dewayne Peace, a Supplemental Draft hopeful, will not receive "rave reviews" from his former coaches, according to Sporting News' Eric Galko.
Peace, the team's leading receiver in 2012, learned he would be ruled academically ineligible during spring workouts. "As I spoke with a member of the Houston staff, he made it clear that the coaches would not be receptive to speaking about Peace, and that he won’t be drawing rave reviews from his now former coaches," Galko writes. We do not expect Peace to draw a draft pick on Thursday. Wed, Jul 10, 2013 10:54:00 AM

Houston senior WR Dewayne Peace is eligible for the Supplemental Draft and could be chosen during the event on July 11.

Peace caught 54 passes for 603 yards and two scores in 2012 but was ruled ineligible, reportedly due to academics, just a few months ago. He led the Cougars in receiving despite missing three games. "Peace offers good lateral quickness but he does not possess the speed to run away from defenders," according to CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

Houston senior WR Dewayne Peace has been ruled ineligible and is no longer with the football team.

Peace led the Cougars in receiving in 2012 despite missing three games, totaling 603 yards and two touchdowns on 54 receptions. Houston has now lost their leading rusher and leading receiver in the last few weeks. Peace's academic standing is reportedly the culprit for this ruling. He worked with the second team offense during the spring, so coaches might have seen this coming.
