Missed six games in the middle of the 2001 season with a broken bone in his foot. Caught 10/88/8.8/1 last year after finishing second on the team in receptions as a sophomore posting 43/600/14.0/3. Totaled 21/265/12.6/4 as a red shirt freshman when he originally broke into the starting lineup. Has had several off the field incidents in the past few; arrested for assault in '98 and proceeded to spend three weeks in jail after testing positive for marijuana which violated his probation. Had sexual assault charges against him dropped due to insufficient evidence in 2000. Cited for reckless driving and leaving the scene of an accident earlier this year after driving his truck into a retirement home.

Nice-sized, athletic tight end that needed another year of college ball. Fluid releasing off the line as a receiver, displays speed and makes plays in the defensive backfield. Extends and out-jumps or out-muscles opponents, adjusting in mid air and grabbing the errant throw. Improved his eye/hand coordination and catches the ball away from his body, offering the quarterback a nice target. Runs well laterally, uses his body to shield away opponents and for the most part looks the pass in. Blocks with solid fundamentals getting leverage on opponents and using his arms and hands to keep them away. Overall effort and results have been inconsistent. Quick into his blocks but does not work hard to finish them and not aware of his assignments. Displays the ability to shuffle and slide his feet in pass protection but stiff and does not use his blocking angles correctly. Lacks focus, concentration and not consistent catching the football. Only an average route runner who uses his strength to maul opponents instead of applying sound football technique. A lot of potential but injuries last season and a lack of focus have limited his production. The sky is the limit for this prospect but based on his off the field exploits and the lack of intensity he's shown may have made a big mistake by entering the draft. Mid-fourth round if not lower.
