BIO: Three-year starter who finished his senior season with 17 receptions for 299 yards and two scores. Junior numbers were 16-174-3.

POSITIVES: Athletic prospect who's improved his game over the past three years. Quick releasing off the line, runs well and catches the pass in stride. Finds the open spot in the field, reaches back to grab the errant throw and looks the ball into his hands. Stays low playing with leverage, works hard as a blocker and jolts opponents at the point of attack.

NEGATIVES: Not always on the same page as his QB, must become more aware of his assignments and involved in the offense. Marginal blocker who lacks strength and technique.

ANALYSIS: Natural abilities alone make him worth a look and though he'll never break into a starting lineup, a solid developmental prospect for a team that carries three tight ends.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
