NFL Draft

Draft Profile: Hawaii WR John Ursua – John O’Mary

by John O’Mary

John Ursua

5’10 175 pounds

Wide receiver from University of Hawaii

2018 Stats

89 rec, 1,343 yards, 16 TD


Ursua was a quarterback in high school but served 2 years on a mission trip. He decided after coming back from his trip, that instead of taking a college offer from Utah and BYU he would stay home to attend Hawaii. The coaching staff convinced him to be a slot receiver. This past season he was fifth in the nation in receiving yards and first in touchdowns. He has good size, speed and quickness to become very hard to cover in the slot. He will be 25 this coming draft which makes him one of the older prospects if not the oldest. He has good body control, and is a reliable pass catcher. He knows how to bait a defender into thinking he is not trying hard enough and then take off on them. He is very competitive. Health can be an issue because of a torn ACL injury back in 2017. He sometimes does not attack the ball as he

Draft prospects.. I can see him as a free agent pickup. A couple of teams are looking at him,
namely the Redskins because they believe he could be another Jamieson Crowder.
