Strong Points

Good size to go along with very good speed. Instant deep threat. Big playmaker. Can run after the catch. Productive in college. Quick cuts and is able to get separation. Flashes good blocking ability.

Weak Points

Raw as far as route running — that area will need development. Doesn't consistently catch the ball cleanly and will have some drops. Does not return kicks.

The Way We See It

Talented but raw wide receiver. Has the size and strength to go along with excellent speed. Will need to improve his route-running skills and catch the ball consistently before he is ready to play on a regular basis. He was extremely productive in college with 184 receptions, 3,197 yards and 34 touchdowns the past two years. Has not been a returner but has the traits and can greatly enhance his value if he can convince teams at the Combine and his pro day he can do that job as well. Has a lot of upside, just not quite ready. Could be a starter by Year Two. Will be a role player as a rookie. Speed will get him drafted high.
