Bio: 
Three-year starter who earned First Team All-Patriot League honors in 2016 and 2017. Led the Patriot League with 12 touchdown receptions and caught 60 passes for 854 yards as a senior. Paced the conference with 14 receiving TDs and made 62 receptions for 1,135 yards as a junior. Started six games as a sophomore and recorded 34 catches for 488 yards and four scores.
Pos: 
Productive pass catcher with average size and speed for the next level. Plays intelligent football, knows where he is on the field and effectively uses the sideline. Displays a sense of timing, looks the ball into his hands and takes big hits but holds onto throws. Works to keep the play in bounds after the catch and gives effort as a blocker.
Neg: 
Unnecessarily lets the pass get inside him at times. Does not always come away with difficult receptions. One-speed receiver.
Analysis: 
Casey was a consistent pass-catching threat at Lehigh but has no single physical skill that stands out about his game. He’s a prospect who must display return skills this summer.
