Wide receiver Andre Jerome Caldwell nicknamed as “Bubba” was chosen by the Cincinnati Bengals in the 2008 NFL Draft. He was the 97th pick overall, going in the third round. Caldwell played his college ball at Florida.
At Florida, Caldwell appeared in 53 games. Averaging 12.7 yards per catch, he caught 185 balls for 2,349 yards. He grabbed 16 touchdown passes.
The wideout is six-foot and 200 pounds. He’s got a fine burst, excellent speed and better-than-average quickness. He can ably break through jams and runs fairly crisp and accurate routes. His balance, body control and soft hands enable him to make money catches. He’s elusive in the open field, shows competitive toughness and is a potential return man. On the down side, his blocking skills are below average; he doesn’t change directions well and may lack durability. With work and focus, he could be a breakout NFL receiver.
