Selected by Oakland Raiders
Round 7, pick 48 (262 overall)
BIO: First-team All-Conference selection as a senior after leading his squad with 56 receptions for 808 receiving yards and 10 scores. Junior totals were 54-786-14 after 34-548-5 the prior year. Began his college career at Wake Forest and a champion track and field sprinter.

POSITIVES: Tough, sure-handed receiver with reliable hands. Plays with focus, concentration and adjusts well to the errant throw, reaching back then plucking the ball from the air. Possesses soft, natural hands and makes the difficult catch in a crowd. Plays as fast, if not faster, then his forty time.

NEGATIVES: Marginal route runner who 10ds to round off breaks and does not display quickness entering or leaving them. Played well on a small school level but did not produce the eye popping numbers.

ANALYSIS: Combines solid size-speed numbers with natural hands a developing receiver who could turn into a productive NFL player in the future.

PROJECTION: Early Sixth Round
