Bears, 2nd round. S. Car.: Junior who has declared for 2012 draft. Good size. Large frame in college, but slimmed down for Combine.
Positives: Tough — broke hand late in 2011, but played in bowl game. Fights off press coverage. Very physical. Adjusts fairly well to errant passes. Average speed.
Negatives: Has a lot of trouble getting separation. Doesn’t seem very athletic. Though a willing blocker, but not terribly effective. Volatile — ejected for personal foul in 2011 bowl game.
Projection: Physical enough to put up solid WR2 numbers. He and Brandon Marshall will be too physical for most corners in the league. If he is dedicated, could have impact like Anquan Boldin in his first several years. Draft as an immediate WR3 with high WR2 upside.
