Summary

Although he was suspended for Penn St.’s bowl game (academics), he is still an interesting guy in this draft.. He is a very big and physical wide receiver, and turned into a big play/big game type guy in his Sr. year. He is excellent in the red zone. He will make the tough catch in traffic, and he has solid overall receiving skills. What he does lack is great quickness and speed, and he is not a real nifty guy. He almost plays more like and H-back or TE, but may not have the ability to get real big. He is a perfect fit in today’s NFL game as a big physical, possession WR that will be a mis-match against smaller DCs, and can also dominate in the red zone. If his quickness and speed are at least adequate, he will be a real consideration on day one in this draft.
