BIO: Two-year starter who posted 17/253/1 in only five games of an injury plagued senior campaign. All-Conference special teams player as a junior after totaling 59/831/5, also averaging 11.7 yards on 29 punt returns, bringing one back for a score.
POSITIVES: Natural receiver that's been very reliable the past three years. Quick releasing off the line, displays a burst of speed and easily makes the reception in stride. Sells routes, quick footed and displays sharpness into breaks. Uses his frame to shield away opponents and makes the difficult catch in a crowd. Stays focused, displays good eye/hand coordination and reliable. Gives effort blocking.
NEGATIVES: Not a big or sturdy receiver who can take a pounding and hold onto the ball. Does a bit of double catching rather than cleanly snatching the pass out of the air. Marginal speed and not a deep threat. Has a history of durability problems.
ANALYSIS: A solid football player that's consistently produced on the field, Frederick is a fourth receiver at the next level who must make his mark as a return specialist.
