Strong Points

Four-year starter and very productive. Has the athleticism of a big wide receiver. Very good body control and flexibility, can get in and out of cuts quickly. Sure hands, can snatch the ball. Very good runner after the catch. Very good speed for a tight end. Willing blocker. Works to get open versus man and zone. Effective short and deep. Great Combine performance.

Weak Points

Needs to get bigger and stronger, especially in the lower body. Narrow frame and does not have a lot of growth potential. While he is a willing blocker, he can get stalemated when blocking in-line. Plays in a simple spread offense, not a very large route tree.

The Way We See It

Very productive four-year stater for Ole Miss. Going into bowl season he has 162 career catches for a 14.3-yard average and 15 touchdowns. Used mostly as a move tight end, in the slot, split out and on the wing. Seldom lines up in tight. While he is a willing blocker, he lacks size and bulk to be effective as a Y at the next level. Is much better when blocking on the move. Can get open and has very reliable hands. Strong runner after the catch showing speed and moves. Should be able to play right away as a move guy in the NFL. Needs to get bigger and stronger but can become an effective weapon if used correctly. Some teams may use him as a big wide receiver.
