BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter and All-Conference selection as a senior after posting career-best receiving numbers of 55/568/2. Also averaged 13.1 yards on 20 punt returns with one score, and 25.6 yards on 16 kick returns.
POSITIVES: Elusive receiver also effective as a return specialist. Plays with great quickness,, displays sharpness into breaks and gets separation from opponents. Goes up in a crowd for the difficult reception, uses his frame to protect the pass.
NEGATIVES: More quick than fast and lacks the top speed or a second gear.
ANALYSIS: A short wideout who.s been developing his game, Steptoe is a potential fourth receiver whose primary duties will be returning punts and kicks.
