Strengths: A quick, agile and shifty receiver/return specialist prospect. His hands are much improved. Shows the ability to pluck on the run and has developed his ability to catch the ball over his head. He's a weapon after the catch -- at his best on quick slants, crossing routes and jailbreak screens. Shows good vision in the open field and displays excellent change-of-direction ability. Is shifty and elusive in space. Will consistently make the first defender miss. He can be dangerous on reverses. Continues to improve with more experience at the wide receiver position. Versatility as a return specialist is an asset. He shows enough vision, quickness and elusiveness to compete for a PR/KOR job in the NFL. Hard worker off the field and will do a good job of studying opponents tendencies. Continues to improve with more experience and really seems to be maturing late in his career.

Weaknesses: Lacks ideal size. Just decent height and marginal bulk. He lacks strength and gets pushed around too easily. Is quicker than fast; lacks ideal top-end speed. He swill struggle to get a clean release off the lien of scrimmage versus bigger press-coverage cornerbacks in the NFL. He gets pushed around and taken out of his routes at times. He still has room to improve in terms of recognizing coverages and finding soft spots in zone. He's far better vs. man-coverage than when working vs. zone. He has had durability issues throughout his career and his lack of size gives more reason for concern regarding his ability to stay healthy long-term in the NFL.

Overall: Stuckey was redshirted in 2002. In 2003 he saw action in eight games, caught two passes for 10 yards but also carried 17 times for 136 yards (8 average) and two touchdowns, and completed 11 of 21 passing attempts for two touchdowns while filling in for Charlie Whitehurst. Stuckey started the nine contests that he played in during the 2004 season, missing two games with an ankle injury. He finished the season with 25 catches for 280 yards (11.2 average). Stuckey started all 12 games in 2005, caught 64 passes for 770 yards (12 average) and scored four touchdowns. During the 2004 and 2005 seasons, Stuckey returned a total of 31 punts for 229 yards (7.4 average), scored one touchdown and also returned two kickoffs for 39 yards. He also has 40 career carries for 227 yards (5.7 average) and two touchdowns (including the totals from 2003). He did not participate in the 2006 spring game because of an injury. In the fall he missed three games (Wake Forest, Temple, and Georgia Tech) with a fractured fifth metatarsal in his right foot, but still managed to lead the team in receptions (45), receiving yards (607 for a 13.5 average) and receiving touchdowns (3) in the nine games he started. Stuckey came on strong as a junior in 2005, especially considering his best performances came against top defensive competition (7 catches vs. Miami, 8 catches vs. N.C. State, 8 catches vs. Ga. Tech and 11 catches vs. FSU). Stuckey overcame an early foot injury in 2006 and went on to have another very productive season in a run-oriented offensive scheme. Stuckey is a clutch player who continues to develop as a wide receiver and shows excellent versatility as a potential NFL return specialist. Unfortunately, his marginal size, durability issues and disappointing timed-speed really hurts his draft stock. Expect Stuckey to come off the board early on Day 2.

and he ran like **** at the combine. For a guy who supposedly ran a 4.3, he ran a 4.6 on the same track that CJ was at 4.35. That cost him some money and quite a few rounds.

He broke his foot during the 2006 season, probably wasnt 100% for the combine.

This could be a good pick. And like Brad Smith, he can throw the ball (former QB) so maybe we reverse to either Brad or Chansi, or double reverse it......this could be another year to confuse D coordinators with both of these guys on the field with ability to throw the ball.

Stuckey is an excellent all-around athlete who has not only proven to be a breakaway threat as a receiver, but also has the explosiveness and strength to break tackles and separate from the pile when handling the reverse. Few college receivers possess the sure hands that Stuckey has, and he also displays a powerful arm for the option pass, thanks to his days as a one of the nation's premier prep quarterbacks.

At Northside High School, Stuckey was rated the No. 15 athlete in the nation by Rivals.com, earning four-star status from that recruiting service. The all-state product threw for 1,286 yards and 13 touchdowns as a senior, leading Northside High to the Class AAAAA state title game. He also rushed for 1,008 yards and 10 scores that year.

Clemson won a heated recruiting battle over Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, South Carolina and Tennessee for Stuckey's services. He spent the 2002 season performing on the scout team as a quarterback.

Stuckey appeared in seven games behind Charlie Whitehurst at quarterback in 2003. He also saw action with the receiving unit, shifting to that position the following year. As a redshirt freshman, he completed 11 of 21 passes (52.4 percent) for 97 yards and two touchdowns. He added 136 yards and a pair of scores on 17 carries (8.0 avg.) and caught two passes for 10 yards.

Dont write off Dwight so quickly; last year he was a good slot receiver for the Jets. And a good blocker.


1)He was hurt almost the entire season.

2)He didn't look good returning punts,and I mean catching the ball.

3)He made a couple of plays to get 1st downs.

Thats what you consider a good slot receiver?

Very, very solid pick by the Jets and I completely forgot all about him and wanted the Jets to take a chance on Walker or draft Tim Duckworth but I'll take Chansi Stuckey with the release or trade of Justin McCareins to come before July in the future.

Very good pick-up and I think even though with only 4 picks, a very good draft for our Jets.

One thing i do know is that this kid comes from one of the top hig school programs in the country Northside High School which yearly is a school in contention on the national stage and plays its rival Warner Robins which also is a national powerhouse here in Ga, so he has good roots.
