Grade: 3.14

BIO: Two-year starter who led the herd in receiving as a senior recording 86 receptions for 993 yards and eight scores. Posted 56-800-9 as a junior after catching only a single pass the prior season.

POSITIVES: Reliable receiving threat in the underneath coverage. Quick releasing off the line of scrimmage, comes back to the ball out of his routes and finds the open spot on the field. Solid eye-hand coordination, looks the pass in and displays soft hands. Makes the reception in stride, keeps the play in bounds and works to pick up positive yardage running after the catch. Extends to pull the high throw out of the air.

NEGATIVES: Tall, thin build and has difficulty with larger opponents. Choppy in or out of his breaks and lazily lets the pass get inside of him at times. Does not have the second gear or deep speed.

ANALYSIS: Must physically mature but could develop as a team's fourth receiver.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
