Strong Points

Syracuse's go-to guy, with 94 receptions for 1,482 yards and 14 TDs. Has moderately good size. Good athlete with adequate speed. Shows courage and will compete for balls in traffic. Good after-the-catch run skills.

Weak Points

Has a lean frame and needs to get bigger and stronger. The Syracuse offense has a minimal route tree with no sight adjustments. Willing blocker but not that effective (strength). Not a burner.

The Way We See It

Fourth-year senior, graduate transfer from Maryland. Played three years at Maryland and was a part-time starter and rotational player. It is fair to wonder why he had such limited production three seasons at Maryland before starring at Syracuse. Has some height and length with a lean frame. Shows good initial quickness but needs to develop his route-running skills after Syracuse. He has good hands and gets yardage after the catch. Like many from that style offense, it will take some time for him to adjust to the NFL. Might never be a starter but can be in a rotation.
