All-Star Games: Senior Bowl.
Positives: Though he has below-average height for the position, he has a solid, running back-like build with above-average bulk for the position. He also has a running back running style after the catch. Above-average speed and quickness, and makes quick cuts when he is running routes. Is sudden in his routes and can stop on a dime, keep moving, and complete his routes to get good separation. He also has above-average hands and can extend to bring in passes on the move and enough body control to adjust for passes low and away. Like a running back, he keeps his balance well after contact and shows fair vision in the open field. Very hard to bring down – runs strong after the catch and will stiff arm for extra yards. Willing to get physical with cornerbacks. Tracks passes well over inside shoulder. Will come down with the occasional circus catch. Adequate hand size.
Negatives: Below-average height for the position. Inconsistent concentration on passes in traffic, and generally won’t come down with the ball. Inconsistent hand-eye coordination and let a pass hit him in the face mask and bobbled another easy one in 2014 bowl game. When running routes, he will consistently break them off short of the first-down marker. Also, though he showed speed and quickness on film, his Pro Day measures showed a complete lack of explosiveness and quickness. Injured right quad in first game of 2014 and missed a few games.
Projection: Round 6. His propensity for dropping easier passes will knock him back a few rounds. Otherwise, he’s a solid complementary receiver and returner in the pros.
