Strong Points

Has the size and length teams love. Not only does he have size but he is very strong for the position and one of the better WR blockers in this draft. Has very good hands and can make the difficult catch as well as compete in traffic. Good runner after the catch. Best as a short to medium range receiver while in school.

Weak Points

Does not play to timed speed, plays more like a 4.52 type than a 4.42 player. Doesn't consistently gain separation. Will have some concentration drops. Not the deep threat you would think he would be.

The Way We See It

Was one of the stars of the Combine, running a 4.42 and jumping very well. His agility drill times did not match up to his 40 time but were still good. He has had 128 receptions the last two seasons and 16 touchdowns. He is big, strong and physical and his blocking ability will help the run game. There is no doubting his hands and talent, just his play speed but the bottom line is the time he ran will get him drafted earlier than people thought going into the Combine. His overall play style will get him on the field early and he can ascend to a No. 2 receiver for most clubs.
