4.75 ?

Draft Analysis:

  • 6'3" Height
  • 32 5/8" Arm Length
  • 239LBS. Weight
  • 9 1/2" Hands



Good athlete. Solid pro-day workout. Very good straight-line speed. Has NFL pedigree -- brother, Ben, was a first-round pick of the Patriots and currently plays for the Saints.


Undersized. Only a one-and-a-half-year starter with limited career receiving production (27 career catches). Underdeveloped blocker. Not a natural catcher. Long-term durability needs to be evaluated carefully given missed 2011 season following heart surgery.

Draft Projection

Free agent

Bottom Line

A pedigreed, H-back prospect with limited experience. Could warrant an opportunity as a developmental project.
