Quick Analysis: What 2016 WR Eddie McDoom Brings to Michigan Football

McDoom brings a solid all-around skill set to the Wolverine wide receiver corps.

Michigan received a commitment from 2016 wide receiver Eddie McDoom (Winter Garden, Florida) on Wednesday morning.

McDoom is a three-star prospect and the 65th-ranked wideout in the class, per the 247 Composite. He is the fifth player at the position the Wolverines have taken so far in this class.

At 5-foot-11, 170 pounds, McDoom is a very solid all-around prospect and a player that Jim Harbaugh, Jedd Fisch and staff were very high on. So much so that they stayed on him hard even after his commitment to Oregon.

The best thing any wide receiver can have going for them is good hands, and he posses them. He has the ability to adjust and snatch the ball out of the air and track it as he is running downfield.

McDoom looks comfortable on all patterns in the route tree and is really sharp in and out of his cuts. He is not a burner, but he shows good speed and knows how to get himself open.

He has the skills to line up both on the outside and in the slot, so he is a versatile talent in that regard.

McDoom is not an elite receiver prospect by any means, but he is a good one. We will see how the staff rounds out his game when he gets to Ann Arbor.
