2021 NFL Draft Prospect: Donnie Corley, WR, Texas Southern

Wide Receiver Donnie Corley is locked in for his senior season at Texas Southern University

By: Brandon Gubitosa

In 2016 the Detroit, Michigan native enrolled at Michigan State as one of the top prospects in the nation. Rivals.com had him ranked 70th among the nations top prospects and 14th among Wide Receivers. ESPN.com named him the top impact freshman for the Michigan State Spartans.

While his time at Michigan State was cut short after 12 games, Corley at the time proved to be the real deal. During his freshman season he had 33 catches for 453 yards and three touchdowns. His breakout freshman season at Michigan State helped him land on the Freshman All-American team. I can’t stress it enough just how talented of a play-maker Corley is. He truly deserves a chance to be drafted this year coming up.

Last season at Texas Southern University he averaged 103.9 yards receiving a game, finishing the year with 72 receptions for 1,039 yards and three touchdowns. Corley averaged 14.43 yards a reception, and won SWAC Newcomer of the Year. His 72 receptions were a conference high, as he had three games with 10+ receptions.

Now entering his final year of eligibility, Corley will look to prove that he still has what it takes to be able to play on sundays in the NFL.

Scouting Notes:

If you are looking for a big play wide receiver, Donnie Corley is your guy. He tore up the FCS last season and I expect a bigger year in 2020. Corley has all the talent in the world, and runs sound routes. His breaks are sharp and his hands are soft. NFL teams are paying attention, and with a big year he should get a shot! – NFL Draft Diamonds Owner Damond Talbot
