BIO: Productive receiver that moved in with the first unit since he was a freshman. Caught 40 passes for 543 yards and six TDs as a senior after 48-657-2 the prior year and 28-394-3 as a sophomore.

POSITIVES: Possession type receiver best in the short field. Finds the open spot in the field, comes back to the ball and shields opponents away with his frame. Moves well laterally, effectively uses the sidelines and lays out then extends for the difficult grab. Good eye-hand coordination.

NEGATIVES: Does a lot of double catching and lets passes slip through his hands. Marginal size-speed numbers. Rarely makes plays down the field.

ANALYSIS: Must step it up in camp next summer to make a roster.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
