Grade: 3.34

BIO: Three-year starter used at both safety and wide receiver at Western Michigan. Recorded 38 receptions for 654 yards and four scores last year after totaling 77 tackles, 2 INTs and five pass defenses the prior season.

POSITIVES: Terrific athlete with top size-speed numbers. Uses his frame as a pass catcher to shield away opponents, displays good eye-hand coordination and adjusts nicely to the errant throw. Catches the ball in stride and shows soft hands. An intimidating force in the defensive secondary who runs with tight ends, gets depth on his pass drops and is a hard hitting defender, strong at the point of attack.

NEGATIVES: Does not play with great balance, not always on the same page as his QB at receiver and lacked instincts as a defensive back.

ANALYSIS: Still raw and needs a lot of fine tuning with his overall game. The ability to test well athletically may catch someone's eye and a solid developmental prospect destined for the practice squad.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
