Selected by New York Giants
Round 6, pick 38 (211 overall)
BIO: Started every game as a senior posting career numbers of 36 receptions, 559 yards receiving and three TDs. Named second team All-Conference choice. Played in 13 games as a junior starting seven and caught 18-233-0. Special teams stand-out as a sophomore when he tied a Syracuse single season record with three blocked kicks. Also blocked a punt during the same season.

POSITIVES: Nice-sized receiver who took his game to another level last year. Physically strong, out muscles opponents and uses his frame to box out defenders. Extends his hands catching the ball away from his body and works to pick up yardage after the reception. Offers the QB a big target and displays a solid head for the game. Excels on both kick and punt coverage teams.

NEGATIVES: Lacks explosion, downfield acceleration and top end speed. Never really productive until his senior campaign.

ANALYSIS: May never be a starting pass catcher at the next level but potentially a team's fifth receiver who's main duties lie on special teams.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
