Yeah, I'm curious what his off field problems were. Heealth? Discipline? Family? It obviosuly affected him this year.
Physically, he is a talented player and right now I have him as a late 3rd. He has great size, great hands, and great body control. Obviosuly for any 6-4 reciever, their speed/quickness is the big issue. Its funny though that Criner putting up 900yrds and 11 TDs is considered a "down" year...goes to show you how dominant he was as a junior.
Another big WR I have my eye on is Gerrell Robinson from the other Arizona school, ASU. He is an odd prospect though, a 6'4 WR that plays the slot WR position. I can't really think of WRs in the NFL that have that size and play the slot. His matchup problem is rather then just rely on pure quickness as small slot WRs, he has enough speed/quickness to beat LBs and most CBs can't hope to compete with his size (kind of like competing with a TE). But his biggest games were when he played against zone coverage, geeeze, this guy knows how to find open space in his routes against the zone. I'd have him as a 5th or 6th becuase he lacks top end speed
