BIO: Junior college transfer who broke in with the first team as a senior and totaled 57 receptions for 939 yards with seven scores. Started one game his initial season in the program and caught 36-630-4.

POSITIVES: Natural receiver with a good feel for the position. Consistently gets open, shields away defenders with his body and catches the ball away from his body. Gets up in mid-air and makes the reception in contorted positions, snatching the ball out of a crowd. Adjusts well, comes back to the football and helps out the QB. Always working to make himself an available target.

NEGATIVES: Not quick releasing off the line of scrimmage, lacks the deep burst and top end speed. Loses focus and peeks before he's caught the ball which leads to dropped passes.

ANALYSIS: Natural pass catcher who could find his way onto a roster as a team's fourth receiver.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
