Strong Points

Adequate size, very good route runner, has very good hands and can adjust to the ball to catch the poorly thrown pass. Good runner after the catch. Effective short and deep. Breaks down and is able to get in and out of cuts quickly. Good to very good athlete. Can be a mismatch against strong safeties and linebackers.

Weak Points

Below average blocker (run and pass), unable to get movement. Inconsistent effort as a blocker. Needs to get bigger and stronger for the NFL game.

The Way We See It

A third-year junior who is entering the draft. Full-time starter in 2015, was a part-time starter in 2013 and 2014. 116 career receptions and nine career touchdowns. Lines up in the slot, flexed out and in tight. Is quick off the ball and is a good route runner. Can get in and out of cuts and is able to gain separation. Has soft hands and makes some difficult catches. A strong runner after the catch. Does little as a blocker. No snap in his hips and rarely gets movement. Can come in and be a force as a move tight end but will need to get stronger and develop his blocking in order to play in-line in the NFL. A long ways away from being a complete tight end but in today's game, there is a place for him.
