Reggie Newhouse

WR | (0-0, 190) | Baylor
By Pro Football Weekly

Notes: Son of former University of Houston star and Cowboys RB Robert Newhouse. Unlike his father, who looked like a bowling ball, Reggie is built like a receiver. Played in every game as a true freshman and caught seven passes for 77 yards. Started 10-of-11 games in 2000 and again in '01. Caught 40-629 and four touchdowns in 2000 and 61-706-8 in '01. Had his best year in '02, catching 75-1,140-3.

Positives: High-character player with good intangibles. Is a willing worker who is very coachable and tough, has above-average hands and will go over the middle to make the tough catch. Has good but not great concentration and hand-eye coordination, reads coverage well and is a willing blocker.

Negatives: Lacks top deep speed and is more of a possession catcher who will struggle to separate at times. He has been very durable at Baylor but reportedly suffered a major knee injury in high school. Is not a return man.

Summary: Lack of pure speed hurts his chances, as does the fact that he is not a return man. But Newhouse is a good football player with high character who should make it if he does a really good job covering kicks on special teams.
