Northern Arizona WR Emmanuel Butler caught three passes for 46 yards in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.
Butler (6'3/220) had a 32-yard pickup -- the longest play of the game -- and impressed during practices this week. It's always an uphill battle coming from such a small football program, but Butler has NFL-caliber size and has competed with other NFL prospects. If he can test well, there's a chance Butler comes off the board late. Otherwise, he will compete as an UDFA. Jan 19 - 8:30 PM

NFL Draft Scout's Ric Serritella writes that Northern Arizona WR Emmanuel Butler has impressed during practices at the shrine game.

Serritella write that he he believes that Butler (6'3/220) has been one of the top prospects at the event. This comes after posting a 33-611-6 line in just eight games on the season. "Butler is a natural hands catcher and has been making tremendous plucks," Serritella writes. "His frame and athleticism should earn him strong Day 3 consideration."

Northern Arizona redshirt senior WR Emmanuel Butler has accepted an invitation to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

Butler (6'3/210) will try to use the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl to jump his name into the draft process in earnest. Unlike the Senior Bowl, which mostly features brand-name draft prospects, the Collegiate Bowl is more a proving ground for fringier hopefuls. At this juncture, Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline grades Butler as an undrafted free agent. He owns a 33-611-6 receiving line in eight games this season.

Northern Arizona redshirt senior WR Emmanuel Butler has 27 receptions, 494 yards, and four touchdowns through five games.

Butler (6'3/210) just went over 3,000 career receiving yards two weeks ago, so his advanced production metrics will test really high. The redshirt senior is averaging an explosive 18.3 yards per reception, which is on par with his career 17.0 YPR. Before the season began, Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline gave Butler a fourth-round grade, and he has produced like a Day 3 draft pick in 2018. Butler will go head to head with fellow wide receiver NFL prospect UC Davis' Keelan Doss on November 3rd.

NFL Draft Scout's Ric Serritella notes that Northern Arizona senior WR is an FCS prospect to watch in the 2019 draft.

Butler (6'3/210) was given a medical redshirt after he missed most of 2017 with a shoulder issue. He has looked healthy in 2018, and he caught eight passes for 147 yards with a score in a loss to Idaho State on Saturday. "Overall, Butler shows great concentration, along with the ability to adjust to the football and come away with the ball in traffic," Serritella writes. "The team captain has been a student of the game, learning all the receiver positions, while lining up at X, Y and Z spots for the Lumberjacks." A name to keep an eye on going forward, for certain.

Northern Arizona senior WR Emmanuel Butler has been awarded a medical redshirt for the 2017 season.

Hat tip to Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline on this one. Butler (6'3/210) missed the vast bulk of the 2017 season due to a shoulder injury sustained in September. Draft Analyst graded him as a potential fourth-round receiver prior to the campaign. Butler ranks fourth in the NCAA in all-time receiving yards with 2,541 to his credit.
