Round 2, pick 31 (63 overall)
BIO: Sophomore entry and starter the past two seasons. Led the team in receiving last year with 41 receptions, 467 yards and eight TDs. Totaled 38-565-7 the prior year and named conference's Co-Freshman of the Year. Two-year letter winner for Stanford's basketball team, one of the nation's top programs.

POSITIVES: King sized pass catcher who may ultimately grow into a tight end. Fluid releasing off the line of scrimmage, shields away opponents with his frame and extends, displaying good eye-hand coordination as well as focus. Plays with balance, adjusts well and out muscles defenders for the difficult reception. Offers the QB a big target. Goes over the middle to make the reception and takes a pounding, yet holds onto the football.

NEGATIVES: Not quick or explosive and has more built up speed than suddenness in his game. Works his routes but lacks quickness into his breaks. Lacks timing and has trouble running full tilt and making the reception. Lazily lets the pass get inside him rather than snatching it away from his frame.

ANALYSIS: A physical specimen but far from being a complete football player and made a mistake leaving college early. Needs to improve all aspects of his game as he may not have a defined pro position.
