All-Star Games: Shrine Game.
Positives: Physically, he has good bulk for his height – with a strong, compact build and adequate hand size. Runs with above-average power and balance after contact, and churns his legs well for extra yards after contact. He also has pretty quick feet and is able to change directions well in the open field. Though he lacks burst, he demonstrates above-average lateral quickness, patience, and decisiveness behind the line. As a receiver, he has generally good hands, and can extend well for passes away from his body. As a route runner, he is willing to get physical with linebackers. Protects the ball well through the line. Willing run or pass blocker.
Negatives: Below-average height for the position. Below-average game speed, track speed, and burst, and it takes him a while to get up to speed.
Projection: Round 7. It looks like he lacks the athleticism and dynamism to be more than a part-time contributor as a short yardage back and special teamer.
