Stroughter was a reserve receiver and punt returner early on in his career, but had a tremendous junior season. He broke out as a receiver and returner. As a receiver, he caught 74 passes for 1,293 yards and five touchdowns. He added over 15 yards per punt return, while taking three back for touchdowns.
Stroughter is a big play specialist who can score any time he has the ball in his hands. He has excellent quickness and the ability to change direction and make defenders miss. He is dangerous as a receiver, but may be even more dangerous as a punt returner. Any opening and he is gone. His ability in both facets of the game make him one of the more intriguing receivers in the game.
Stroughther’s size is only average, and he doesn’t match up very well with more physical corners. You can get in his face and get physical with him at the line of scrimmage.
Stroughter came out of nowhere to become one of the most dangerous players in college football last year. He needs to show this year that he is capable of doing it again.
