Bio: 
Two-year starter who caught 34 passes for 448 yards and one touchdown in 2016. Missed four games with a broken leg as a junior in 2015 but still posted 32 receptions for 416 yards and four touchdowns.
Pos: 
Moderately productive college receiver with nice size. Sturdy, makes difficult catches in a crowd and takes a pounding yet holds onto the throw. Works back to the quarterback to make himself an available target, uses his frame to protect the ball and easily makes the reception in stride. Terrific downfield blocker.
Neg: 
Unnecessarily lets the ball get inside him and does too much body-catching. One-speed receiver with a limited burst.
Analysis: 
Wheelwright flashed ability the past two seasons but has shown little consistency. He offers attractive size and is a receiver who does the little things well yet must improve many aspects of his game.
