Curtis has taken an interesting and long route to becoming an NFL prospect. He started his career at Snow College (Utah) in 1996-97, where he was a junior college All-American in 1997. He then went on a Mormon mission, missing the 1998 and 1999 seasons. He walked on at Utah State in 2000 and redshirted. Once he got back on the field the following season, it was like he never left. In 2001, he led the nation in catches per game, and was third in receiving yards per game. He has decent size and speed, though the speed is mostly straight-line as he isn't elusive. Curtis is an excellent route runner and knows how to find soft areas of zone coverage. He has a good burst, especially coming out of his breaks and when getting off the line of scrimmage. He does a good job of setting up defenders so as to get separation from them. His hands are excellent, and he rarely body catches a pass. He could afford to get a little stronger, but it doesn't prevent him from going over the middle or blocking. Curtis is a good leaper but wins the battles in the air because he knows how to time his jump precisely. Curtis is an interesting prospect as he has dominated some mid-major schools, but it will be a big jump to do the same to more physical NFL cornerbacks.
