Golladay was very productive for only playing in 26 career game at Northern Illinois, where he had 180 catches, for 2285 receiving yards, and 18 receiving touchdowns. He was a go-to receiver, a solid pass catcher, he has great size, and good speed. He is also a great deep threat, a good blocking receiver, an offensive play maker, sure handed, he makes defenders miss, and he is always beating his defender. On top of those, he is a good route runner, he goes up & gets the ball, and he fights for the ball. The only issues I see are only 2 seasons at the FBS level, and some may consider his production at NIU as a product of the competition he saw. But, with that said, I see Golladay as a day 3 pick, somewhere in the 5th-7th round range.
