Toledo WR Eric Page to Enter NFL Draft

Toledo Rockets junior Eric Page has decided to skip his senior season and enter the NFL draft. According to reports, Page has acknowledged he has been given a third to fifth round grade. That was apparently enough for the Toldeo native. Page will skip a chance to set the MAC record for receptions in a career (he is currently tied for first with 306 receptions) and possibly the NCAA record as well. Page will fall just 43 catches shy of that record.

In addition to his prowess as a receiver, Page was a consensus All-American as a kick returner. He performed well against Ohio State this season, and seems like he would help an NFL team.

    As a Toledo Fan, I am saddened by this news, but as a realist I knew this was coming.  Page has a great career at Toledo, and has the potential to have a long career in the NFL.  I see him as a Wes Welker type with great hand, and quick feet.  He doesn’t possess top end speed, but can get open and make guys miss in space.  He compares favorably to another Toledo product Lance Moore, now with the Saints.  Good luck to him, hope to see him on Sundays. 

  • How would he look compared to our groupof guys? Having not watch much of Toledo I do not know Page well. Could he be a guy to target/watch (for us) in later rounds?

  • I wouldn’t be upset if the Browns took a shot on him with a fourth or fifth rounder. A lot of his stock will be determined by his 40 time at the combine. Great hands, but not great size (5’10”) and not a blazer. But he is a football player.

    love to see this guy in the slot running sort slants, slant and gos and deep posts with a QB that can hit him in stride. Just get this kid the ball and he’ll make some plays

    Eric Page may not have  the best 40 time at the combines. But, I have never seen him get caught from behind. He is one of the few players who can elevate his speed on game day! He may run a 4.5 on the track and a 4.3 on the field. Ask the Buckeyes, best player on the field that day!
    Given the right team, he will be an outstanding pro. Mark my words! He was by far and away the best high school offensive player in the state Ohio in 2007-2008. The kid is only 20 years old. He will be 21 in September, not even close
    to reaching his physical potential. He will be missed  in Toledo. Good Luck Eric!!
