UDFA. Signed by Raiders as UDFA but released in August. Has enough talent to contribute WR3 numbers if he gets enough opportunity.
All-Star Games: Senior Bowl.
Positives: Adequate height and bulk. Above-average hand size. Long wingspan. Above-average hands and can reach out and snag off-target passes. Above-average routes with a quick double move, and is quick out of his breaks. Adequate concentration over the middle and on contested passes. Uses his quickness and hands well to get off press coverage. Solid downfield blocker. Seems to be a hard worker, and he reportedly put in a lot of after-practice work at Senior Bowl. Adequate track speed.
Negatives: Fairly weak upper body. Suspect ball security, and he holds the ball in one hand while making moves after the catch. Needs to be more decisive after the catch and head upfield instead of dancing around. Below-average overall lower-body explosiveness in pro day workouts. Underwent hernia surgery in Spring 2013. Sprained ankle in September 2013 and missed a game. Reprimanded by league in October 2013 for illegal block and his reaction may point to immaturity.
Projection: Keep an eye on him to see where he lands. Worth stashing at the end of your dynasty roster “just in case.”
