BIO: Junior college All-American who caught 48 passes for 565 yards and seven TDs last season after 23-196-8.5 his first year in the program.

POSITIVES: Big framed receiver who flashes skill on occasion. Fluid releasing off the line of scrimmage, stays low exiting breaks and positions himself to make the reception. Strong, boxes out opponents and looks the ball into his hands. Adjusts well to the errant throw and comes away with the difficult grab. Runs well laterally and occasionally shows the ability to take it deep.

NEGATIVES: Lacks timing, consistency and a feel for the position. Does not show much quickness or explosion in his game. Cradles the ball between his forearms or lets the pass get inside him instead of ex10ding and catching the pass away from his frame.

ANALYSIS: Made some strides as a senior though he was hampered by a knee injury late in the campaign. Developmental type prospect who could find his way onto a practice squad.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
