Rams, 2nd round. Appalachian St.: Very good size. Above-average hand size.
Positives: Can extend to catch errant passes. Adequate speed for the size. Adequate downfield blocker. Adequate upper-body strength.
Negatives: Below-average acceleration and change-of-direction skills. Suspect balance making cuts. Lacks awareness of first-down marker.
Projection: Likely to be a solid WR4 contributor — fantasy relevant in deeper leagues. Enters a very confusing WR depth chart filled with mediocre WRs, with Danario Alexander, Brandon Gibson, Steve Smith, Danny Amendola, Austin Pettis, Greg Salas, and fellow rookie Chris Givens. Will get a shot to contribute right away, and has ability to put up WR3 numbers if Sam Bradford gets back on track, but I’d say he’s probably their 5th-best WR talent right now. But his draft position means he’ll get a good chance right away.
