All-Star Games: College Gridiron Showcase.
Positives: Though he tends to let too many passes get to his body, he actually has adequate hands. He maintains his balance pretty well after contact, and is effective after the catch, which also helps him as a punt returner. Has fairly strong hands and can hold the ball while defenders are trying to strip it. Runs with OK speed and quickness. Smart punt return fielding decisions and generally fields kicks and punts very cleanly – even on the run. Adequate height, bulk, and hand size for the position.
Negatives: He tends to body catch. Runs below-average routes and consistently rounds them off, limiting his separation ability. Doesn’t keep squared while making big moves and lets his legs get out of control – will slip at times making cuts. Has to dial down a lot to change directions and lacks explosiveness out of his cuts. He also looks like he is slow to accelerate after fielding punts. Injured wrist in October 2014 and missed unknown amount of time, but was back for the bowl game.
Projection: Round 5. He will probably land on a roster as a special teamer and part-time contributor on offense.
