Position: Wide Receiver College: Illinois Height: 6-0 Weight: 184 40-yard dash: 4.49 Hometown: Blue Springs, Mo. Looking at Lloyd and his measurable numbers, you wouldn't think he was anything special. He isn't big, though he does have good height at 6-1, nor is he very fast. What he is, though, is a good athlete who knows how to be a receiver at the next level. He has good hands with long arms. He is an incredible leaper and uses his high jump skills in this regard. Lloyd is able to locate balls in the air and adjust to them. He has improved his route running skills, becoming more sudden and quick out of his cuts. He is willing to go over the middle to make the tough catches, even though he isn't a physical receiver. He isn't a great threat after the catch but does such a good job of catching the deep pass, he is a down field threat. He is a willing blocker but isn't all that good. He does a decent job of getting separation at the line of scrimmage but can be jammed. Lloyd isn't the physical specimen that some receivers are in this draft, but he is an accomplished receiver who has to be judged on more than his physical attributes.
