Bills, 2nd round. S. Cal.: Junior who has declared for 2013 NFL Draft. Adequate size. Average hand size.
Positives: Good hands. Very good effort on errant passes. Fights for contested passes. Above-average routes. Adequate speed, quickness, and change-of-direction ability. Good concentration on tipped passes. Gets physical with CBs off line. Not easy to bring down. Though not a strong blocker, is a willing one.
Negatives: Below-average athleticism in Combine measurements. Not a very effective blocker. Injured ankle in 2011, and may still be feeling effects. Not a dynamic PR and makes some risky fielding decisions. Slow to head upfield on punt returns.
Projection: He’s entering a completely rebuilding Bills offense, with new faces at most positions. But he’s the kind of WR who is ready to be plugged into an NFL offense and have an immediate positive effect. He’s also joined by fellow rookie Marquise Goodwin, who will be the deep threat that keeps defenses honest. Low ceiling but also a low floor. May never be a dominant WR, but will be a solid pro. Draft as an immediate WR3 with WR2 potential.
