An NFC personnel director says a team will take a chance on TCU senior WR Kolby Listenbee because of his speed.
The evaluator said any player that approaches 10 seconds in the 100 meters is worth a long look by the NFL. Listenbee clocked a 10.03 at the Big 12 championships earlier this year. Not only that, but the 6-foot-1, 183-pound senior has reportedly run a 4.29-second 40-yard dash. Thu, Dec 10, 2015 08:17:00 PM

TCU senior WR Kolby Listenbee is one of the "favorites to run the fastest 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine in February," CBS Sports' Dane Brugler notes.

The 6-foot-1, 183-pound senior has track star speed, finishing fifth in the 100 meters and fourth in the 200 meters at the Big 12 Championships last May. The TCU speedster has 10.0-second 100-meter track speed, and has reportedly run as fast as a 4.29-second 40-yard dash.

TCU senior WR Kolby Listenbee accepted an invite to the Senior Bowl.

Despite missing two games, Listenbee is the school's second-leading receiver (behind you-know-who) with 29 catches for 598 yards and five touchdowns. The 6-foot-1, 183-pound senior has track star speed and projects as a poor man's Devin Smith at the next level.

TCU senior WR Kolby Listenbee is "a true vertical threat for the next level," writes TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

Listenbee is a one-trick pony, but his one trick is pretty neat. The 6-foot-1, 183-pound senior has 10.0-second 100-meter track speed. "Possessing legitimate 4.4s speed, he’s the perfect compliment on the college level for [Josh] Doctson and a true vertical threat for the next level," Pauline wrote. Listenbee has played well in place of Josh Doctson in the defacto featured WR role. He'll get another chance to prove himself Friday against Baylor.

TCU senior WR Kolby Listenbee will "be a riser come NFL Scouting Combine time," predicts NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter.

"He has 10.0-second 100-meter track speed and the game to do more than run fly routes," Reuter wrote. Listenbee has suffered with a hip injury for the past few weeks but looked fine in ripping up Iowa State for six catches, 101 yards and a score last week. He's got a bye week to heal up.

TCU senior WR Kolby Listenbee caught six passes for 101 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 45-21 win over Iowa State.

Listenbee--who's still working his way back from a hip injury--didn't have a catch in last weekend's win over Kansas State, but he looked close to form in Saturday's defeat of Iowa State. He notched his only touchdown of the game in the first quarter, when Trevone Boykin found him for a 21-yard score. Prior to suffering the hip injury, the 6-foot-1, 183-pound senior had caught nine passes for 202 yards and two touchdowns across three games played. If he's truly back healthy, he makes for a boom-bust DFS prospect due to his blazing downfield speed.

According to TCU HC Gary Patterson, senior WR Kolby Listenbee (hip) was "average" in his return to play against Kansas State on Saturday.

"Kolby was kind of hit and miss," said Patterson, who added that he expects Listenbee to ramp up to speed soon. The 6-foot-1, 183-pound senior injured his hip in a September 19 win over SMU, then subsequently missed games against Texas Tech and Texas before returning with a catch-less performance in Saturday's win over Kansas State. For the season, he's caught nine passes for 202 yards and two touchdowns. Josh Doctson will remain QB Trevone Boykin's top receiving target, but a healthy Listenbee is always a threat to break one deep due to his blistering top-end speed. He's averaging 22.4 yards per reception.

TCU WR Kolby Listenbee is questionable to play against Texas due to a hip injury.

Listenbee missed last week's contest against Texas Tech. Obviously TCU's go-to receiver is Josh Doctson, but they are struggling to find a second option mainly due to injury. On the season, Listenbee has nine catches for 202 yards and two touchdowns.

TCU senior WR Kolby Listenbee "did not practice much this week," per his head coach Gary Patterson.

Listenbee is apparently dealing with a hip injury suffered when landing at the end of a catch. The senior is considered the No. 2 receiver on the team behind Josh Doctson, with nine catches for 202 yards and two touchdowns in three games. Ja’Juan Story has also been hobbled with an injury.

TCU senior WR Kolby Listenbee caught six passes for 142 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 70-7 win over Stephen F Austin.

Listenbee's a blink-and-you'll-miss-him receiver and he showed off that speed on Saturday, busting free for multiple long gains (23.7 YPC) as Stephen F Austin had nobody who could truly keep up the pace. To wit, QB Trevone Boykin found him sprinting down the field with a five-yard cushion near the end of the first quarter. It resulted in an easy 61-yard touchdown catch, as much as any 61-yard touchdown reception can count as "easy." The 6-foot-1, 183-pound burner was almost completely shut down by Minnesota's corners in Week 1, but Week 2 reminded us all what happens when he can find just a sliver of daylight.

TCU senior WR Kolby Listenbee "flashes big play ability but needs to up his production a bit," notes TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

Pauline added that he "like[s] the potential" of the Horned Frogs' playmaker. The analyst grades Listenbee as a preseason Rd. 5 prospect. "Listenbee offers terrific measurables and the talent to line-up as a third receiver on Sunday," he wrote. The 6-foot-1, 183-pounder has the fastest time amongst college football players in the 100-meter dash (10.04 seconds). He recorded 38 receptions for 709 yards and three touchdowns last season.

Per NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter, TCU senior WR Kolby Listenbee "must demonstrate sufficient physicality and consistent hands to earn high grades from NFL teams."

The 6-foot-1, 183-pound Listenbee very well could be the fastest player in all of college football. He had the fastest time amongst football players in the 100-meter dash (10.04 seconds), the second fastest in the 200-meter dash (20.61) and was an All-American last year in the 4x100 relay. "That speed jumps out on film," Reuter wrote.

Sports Illustrated's Ben Glicksman believes TCU senior WR Kolby Listenbee "could become exceedingly difficult to cover" in 2015.

"If he can start to hone some underneath routes to complement his beat-you-deep dominance—something SB Nation’s Ian Boyd broke down in extensive detail last month—Listenbee could become exceedingly difficult to cover. That’s especially true given that TCU’s offense returns senior quarterback Trevone Boykin, the preseason Heisman Trophy favorite," Glicksman wrote. The TCU prospect recorded 38 receptions for 709 yards, with three touchdowns last season for the Frogs. The Speedster tore it up during spring football and could be a big-time wide out in the Big 12 this season.

NFL Media ranks TCU senior WR Kolby Listenbee as the No.1 fastest players in college football.

The 6-foot-1, 183-pound Listenbee posted the fastest time in the country among football players in the 100-meter dash with a time of 10.04 seconds and recorded the second fastest in the 200-meter dash (20.61). At the 2014 Big 12 Championships, Listenbee ranked fifth in the 100 meters and finished fourth in the 200 meters.

TCU coach Gary Patterson compared TCU senior WR Kolby Listenbee's versatility and precision in running routes to Odell Beckham Jr.

"Patterson is obviously expecting big things from Listenbee, who was given a shot to star in the spring after an injury to vertical threat Josh Doctson," ESPN's Travis Haney wrote. "With experience at every position on offense, Patterson hinted that co-OCs Doug Meacham and Sonny Cumbie will be able to implement additional formations and ideas in the second year of the spread at TCU. Expect Listenbee to be a huge part of that next chapter." The analyst named Listenbee the No. 2 breakout candidate in the nation. At last year's Big 12 Championships, Listenbee ranked fifth in the 100 meters and finished fourth in the 200 meters. He's arguably the fastest player in the country.
