Wideout Kevin Deevon Curtis played his college football for Utah State. In the 2003 NFL Draft, the St. Louis Rams chose him as the 74th overall pick in the third round. He played with St. Louis from 2003-2006. Since 2010, he has been with the Miami Dolphins.
Curtis has played in 67 NFL games over five seasons. In the last three years, he’s seen action in each regular-season contest. Over five years, he’s caught 213 passes for 2,824 yards and 18 touchdowns. He’s also made 130 first downs, while averaging 13.3 YPC. In the past three years, he’s seen a small amount of special teams work.
Curtis, who is six-foot and 186 pounds, starts at wideout for the Eagles. He’s a fine athlete and a smart player who utilizes his skills and talents nicely. His quickness allows him to break free at the line of scrimmage and his acceleration often leads to decent separation from defenders. He’ll go for the pass in a crowd and is willing to play in tight situations up the middle. Curtis can take the ball downfield, adjusting quickly. He plays bigger than he is, making tough catches with his skilled hands.
He was released by the Eagles in 2010, in the month of March. Curtis was signed on 13th December, 2010 by the Miami Dolphins team.
He’s not the strongest or most elusive runner, although he can use a move or two to find a few more yards after catching the ball. His blocking skills are below average and his downfield acceleration is not very good. He’s a tough player whose skill set and physical properties mesh nicely with a West Coast Offense. Curtis is a good number two receiver.
