Colts, Round 3. Was a junior. Rated as my 16th-best WR going in, he went 14th to the Colts. His combination of size, speed, hands, and effort are going to serve him well in catching passes from Andrew Luck. He should start immediately across from Hakeem Nicks if Reggie Wayne doesn’t come back from his ACL tear, and should do well for himself.
Positives: Good height and very good bulk for the position, with a fairly long wingspan. Adequate hand size. Very good hands and extends well, laying out for passes. Can get low to scoop passes. Above-average speed. Good effort for extra yards and will dive for the pylon. Tracks fairly well over his inside shoulder. Above-average track speed for his position, but great for his size. Adequate upper body strength. Good vertical leap and general lower body explosiveness in Combine testing.
Negatives: Needs to work back to the quarterback on comeback routes. Doesn’t seem to change directions very quickly after the catch. Below-average lateral quickness and ability to change directions in Combine testing.
Projection: Draft as an immediate WR3 with high WR2 potential.
