Strong Points

Great combination of size, speed and athleticism. Has dominated the MAC for a few years while also playing well when they played Power 5 schools. Gets constantly double- and sometimes triple-teamed and still can't be stopped. Has very good route-running skills, adjusts to the ball and can snatch it. Can easily defeat press coverage with his size, strength and quickness. Competes in traffic and wins. Very good run skills after the catch. Strong blocker.

Weak Points

Sustained an ankle injury late and was unable to work out at the Combine or Western Michigan's Pro Day on March 15. His hand measurement is small for such a big guy (9¼ inches). Has not played with a complex route tree. Don't have a verified speed.

The Way We See It

Not being able to work out for clubs hurts him some but not much. He will still try to do something for clubs shortly before the draft in mid-April. As a player, he is as talented as you will find in this draft. A big, physical guy who can be compared to Brandon Marshall or Dez Bryant but looks faster than either. Had record-setting numbers while at Western Michigan. Shows a strong release and can uncover versus man or zone. Competes in traffic, makes the difficult catch and is a very good runner after the catch. Not much he can't do and will come in and play right away.
