Strong Points

Adequate WR size. A three-year starter at Virginia Tech. Has a good release and good route quickness. Shows good to very good overall athleticism and overall body control. Play speed is faster than timed speed. Shows he is able to get separation on both long and short routes. Tracks the ball well and has been a consistent playmaker.

Weak Points

Timed speed. Needs to add strength to fight off jam by strong corners. Can get redirected by corners. Not a blocker. Too many double catches or drops. Doesn't always catch the ball cleanly. Plays like a small hand guy but hand size is OK. Limited route tree at Virginia Tech.

The Way We See It

A tall and lean WR who needs to add strength. He is a good athlete with play speed but raw. At Virginia Tech, the route tree is limited, so he will need work in perfecting his routes. While he is productive, he has too many drops and/or double catches. Does he have poor hands or is it concentration? Either way, it has to improve. Shows he can be dangerous after the catch with his quickness. His 40 time at Indy was disappointing, add that to his other weak points and he will be drafted much later than originally expected. Doubt he becomes more than a No. 4 receiver in the league unless he shows drastic improvement.
