BIO: Former linebacker who mainly played special teams originally with the program. Two-year starter who produced career numbers of 50 receptions for 752 yards and four scores as a senior after 28-392-4 the prior year.

POSITIVES: King sized receiver whose game has progressed the past Two-years. Looks the pass in, adjusts to the errant throw and makes the difficult reception in traffic. Uses his size as an advantage, displays timing and extends to catch the ball away from his frame. Works to make himself an available target and stays in bounds, picking up positive yardage running after the catch. Helps out on punt coverage teams.

NEGATIVES: Not quick releasing off the line, lacks deep speed and has difficulty getting separation. Inconsistent and runs before he's actually caught the ball which leads to dropped passes.

ANALYSIS: Inexperienced as he has only two full seasons at the receiver position under his belt. Needs time and repetition but his natural abilities make him worth bringing into camp.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
