Kenny Stills: Video Highlights for Former Oklahoma WR
The wild hairstyle and questionable attitude of Oklahoma receiver Kenny Stills may come off as brash to NFL scouts, but there's no denying his talent level on the football field.
San Diego's all-time leader in receiving yards at the high school level has family ties to the NFL, with a father and uncle who suited up on Sunday.
Despite some maturity concerns, the junior earned second-team All-Big 12 honors after achieving the same feat the previous year. A favorite target of Landry Jones, Stills made himself widely available when the team needed a catch.
Here are nine video highlights for the former Oklahoma receiver.
9. 44-Yard TD Catch in Back of End Zone vs. Kansas, 2012
In what would be a long night for the Jayhawks, Landry Jones floated a pass to Stills right in the back of the end zone for a perfect quarterback-to-receiver connection.
Jones hit Stills in stride on the 44-yard score, but credit should be given to Stills for his part in getting enough separation from his defender to be able to make the play. Stills made it look easy.
8. 68-Yard TD Catch vs. UTEP, 2012
Down by a score to the Miners early in the game, Stills wasted no time in playing catch-up as he and Landry Jones hooked up for a 68-yard TD in the first quarter.
Stills had his man beat by a good three yards when he caught the pass, and nobody was going to stop him from reaching the pylon in a foot race. Stills ran a beautiful route downfield and finished it off with an impressive showing of speed.
7. Block on Blake Gideon vs Texas, 2011
Blake Gideon didn't know what hit him after he took a huge hit from the undersized Stills on a completed pass.
At first believed to be an unnecessary roughness call for a helmet-to-helmet blow, you can clearly see in the clip that Stills delivers an accurate clean shoulder to the defender, lifting him off his feet. Not bad for a 195 lb. six-footer.
6. Block on C.J. Morgan vs. Iowa State, 2011
Iowa State linebacker C.J. Morgan was another victim of a stiff shoulder from Stills in this highlight from the 2011 season.
Never afraid to make contact even without the ball, Stills is aggressive with the block but accurate.
5. 15-Yard TD Catch in Rivalry Game vs. Oklahoma State, 2012
Landry Jones threw for a whopping 500 yards against Oklahoma State in what was a big overtime victory for the Sooners.
Stills contributed nine catches for 103 yards and this 15-yard TD in the second quarter. After the defender misread the ball, Stills was able to cash in and tip the ball to himself for the score.
4. Game-Winning TD vs. West Virginia, 2012
Down by five on the road with less than 30 seconds remaining in the game, Oklahoma faced a 4th-and-3 near West Virginia's end zone.
Stills would run a quick inside slant toward the end zone and catch the eventual game-winner from Landry Jones. It was his fourth TD catch of the game and a prime example of a receiving using his body to get inside and set up for a completion.
3. 38-Yard Catch in Between Two Defenders vs. Florida State, 2011
In the second quarter of a much-anticipated showdown with then-ranked No. 5 Florida State, Stills displayed tremendous toughness and concentration in making a catch despite an oncoming collision between two defenders.
Stills manages to complete the catch for 38 yards after beating Xavier Rhodes downfield—a highly rated defensive back in this year's draft.
2. Game-Winning TD Catch vs. Florida State, 2011
In his first game back since being suspended for an offseason DUI arrest, Stills proved he was ready to come back and play football when he recorded seven receptions for 125 yards and the game-winning TD catch in the fourth quarter.
Tied at 13 with about seven minutes to go, Landry Jones threw a bomb downfield, where Stills and his defender awaited its descent. In typical jump-ball fashion, Stills went up right over the defensive back and pulled down the catch.
1. One-Handed Catch vs. Florida A&M, 2012
Stills had a nice 10-reception game in a 69-13 whooping of Florida A&M, but this one-handed beauty was his highlight moment for sure.
Coming across the middle, Stills and the Florida A&M safety are quickly acquainted with one another, but despite the hit, No. 4 makes the catch with just one hand.
