DaeSean Hamilton left Penn State as the all-time career receptions leader, but took an interesting route to become the player who is now on the verge of hearing his name called during the 2018 NFL Draft.
Hamilton made a huge impact from the start of his career, leading the Big Ten in receptions as a redshirt freshman in 2014. He would then see his numbers decline the next two seasons. As a sophomore, he had a respectable 45 receptions for 580 yards and six touchdowns, playing second-fiddle to current Tampa Bay wideout Chris Godwin. As a junior, he struggled to find his role in the new offensive system under Joe Moorhead, and battled a case of the yips where his typically-incredible hands deceived him at times. However, he did find his groove toward the tail end of the season, setting up for a strong senior campaign.
