BIO: Three-year starter who led Princeton in receiving every season since his sophomore campaign. Second-team All-Conference selection as a senior catching 57 passes for 772 yards with three scores. Junior totals were 36-581-3 after 51-893-3 the prior year.

POSITIVES: Big, strong receiver who may be best at H-back. Fluid releasing off the line of scrimmage, extends his hands and catches the ball away from his body. Displays soft, consistent hands. Effective running after the catch and breaks tackles, picking up yardage off initial contact.

NEGATIVES: Not fast or explosive, only good in a short field and does not time well in the 40.

ANALYSIS: Size and productivity are an advantage and may even garner some consideration at fullback.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
