Pre-season report:

Not an overly productive receiver, but this is not a pass oriented offense, and Maze is one of the Crimson Tide’s best playmakers. He can help your team out as a speedy possession receiver as well as in the return game. Averaging almost 16 yards per reception the last two seasons, Maze is a guy who is consistently improving his game. He might not be a highly regarded small receiver like a Titus Young or Jerrel Jernigan, but Maze will make an NFL roster and find a way to contribute. Not a flashy player, but consistent, and I would love to see a breakout season from him this year as the primary target in the Alabama passing game. Probably a complementary or slot receiver in the NFL.
