#132 - Kealoha Pilares, WR, Hawaii

A 5'10, 205 lb run and shoot receiver, Pilares has a wide catching radius who's strong for a receiver his size, goes over the middle, and can stretch the field.

He put together 88 receptions, 1300 yards, and 15 touchdowns last year, coming up from 66/690/4 last year. He's a very productive slot type receiver, and is smart enough to make the Coryell reads that inside receivers must make - reading the coverage, reading the corner, and making the choice along with the QB to break a route in a different direction.

I'm a little surprised they went receiver, with three young guys on staff, but even with a backlog of young players, the new staff will want their guys. Pilares fits, especially in providing a young slot guy if Steve Smith is gone.
