Jordan Leslie only played in Provo for one season, but you didn't have to watch very much BYU Football last season to see the impact he had for the Cougars from the wide receiver position. Leslie finished the season with 779 yards receiving on 55 receptions and six receiving touchdowns. He also added another touchdown on the ground. Before coming to BYU as a graduate transfer, Leslie racked up 125 receptions, 2015 receiving yards, and 15 receiving touchdowns over three seasons with UTEP.
While those stats aren't phenomenal, they are very good and better than some of the wide receivers projected higher than him on various mock drafts. He showed the ability to be a big-time receiver before UTEP changed offensive schemes, and then battled injury in his lone season at BYU. When those stats are combined with his performance at his Pro Day they should earn him a draftable grade from at least a few teams.
Here are Leslie's Pro Day numbers (according to nfldraftscout.com):
- 40-yard dash - 4.44
- 225 lb bench - 18 reps
- Vertical jump - 36 inches
- Broad jump - 130 inches
- 20-yard shuttle - 4.08
- 3-cone drill - 6.87
