Juaquin Iglesias is a wide receiver for the Chicago Bears. After completing his senior year at the University of Oklahoma, Iglesias entered the 2009 NFL Draft, where the Bears selected him 99th overall. Iglesias is 6-feet tall and weighs 204 pounds. His name is pronounced WAH-keen ee-GLAY-see-us.
Iglesias attended Killeen High School (TX) where he played football, basketball and track. Despite recording 42 receptions for 866 yards and 10 touchdowns as a senior, Iglesias was lightly recruited coming out of high school. He was the lowest-rated wide receiver prospect of the four receivers in the Sooners 2005 recruiting class, behind Malcolm Kelly, Manny Johnson, and Eric Huggins.
During his true freshman season of 2005, Iglesias caught just 19 passes for 290 yards. His breakout game came in the 2005 Holiday Bowl against Oregon in which he caught a season-high five passes for 85 yards.
Iglesias saw an increased workload in 2006, catching 42 passes for 514 yards. He once again saved his best for last, recording his first career 100-yard game in the 2007 Fiesta Bowl against Boise State. During his sophomore season, Oklahoma also began using Iglesias as a return specialist. He returned 14 kicks for 363 yards, including one for a touchdown against Baylor.
Entering his junior season, Iglesias was expected to take a back seat to standout receiver Malcolm Kelly, but it was Iglesias who became Sam Bradford's favorite target. Iglesias led the team in receptions (68) and receiving yards (907).
Iglesias was selected in the third round (99th overall) in the 2009 NFL Draft by the Chicago Bears. Before the 2009 season, Iglesias signed a four-year contract with the Bears.
Iglesias entered his senior year as Oklahoma's number one receiver, following the departure of Malcolm Kelly to the NFL. He helped lead Oklahoma to the Big 12 Championship by posting career highs in receptions (74), receiving yards (1,150) and touchdowns (10). In the BCS Championship Game against Florida, Iglesias caught five passes for 58 yards. Iglesias finished his collegiate career with 2,861 receiving yards and 19 touchdowns.
Oklahoma QB Sam Bradford has been nothing short of excellent so far this season, and his accuracy may be best defined by completing more than half of his passes (16 of 30) to targets more than 15 yards beyond the line of scrimmage. That's impressive. But it would be foolish not to recognize the role of the OU receivers in Bradford's gaudy passing stats. His four primary targets -- Manny Johnson, Juaquin Iglesias, Jermaine Gresham and Ryan Broyles -- have gained 747 of their combined 1,403 receiving yards (53.2%) after the catch. Johnson (10.3), Gresham (10.8) and Broyles (11.4) all gain more than 10 yards on average after catching the ball.
