Strong Points

Size, very good athlete, two-year starter. Good hands with a large receiving radius. Tough and physical. Will go inside and compete in traffic and win. Uses his size well to win jump balls. Good route runner especially versus zone. Good runner after the catch. Good downfield blocker.

Weak Points

Suffered a knee injury late in the 2015 season (Bowl game) and recovery was longer than usual. Was really mid-season before he regained pre-injury form. Does not always play to timed speed. Not see the quickness and explosion in 2016 that we saw in 2015. Needs to improve his run after catch skills.

The Way We See It

Looked like a player on the come in 2015, then he suffered a knee injury in the Michigan Bowl game and his 2016 wasn't nearly as good. Had a very strong Combine to show that he may be all the way back. While he may never be a starter, he can be a matchup reserve who can give a team quality reps. His medical will have a lot to do with where he gets drafted. A Day 3 selection with upside if he is healthy.
