Prepped in Pennsylvania, where he was a running back and track standout. Suffered an MCL tear as a junior. Appeared in all 13 games (one start) in 2010, tallying eight receptions for 105 yards (13.1-yard average) and a touchdown. Started all nine games played in '11, managing 14-205-1 (14.6). Missed four games (ankle). Started 11-of-12 games in '12 and caught 60-669-3 (11.1). Started all 14 games in '13, tallying 63-771-10 (11.9). Also returned 41 career punts for 400 yards (9.8), including two scores. Team captain. Did not lift at the NFL Scouting Combine because of a right shoulder (A/C joint) injury.
Works himself open short-to-intermediate. Adjusts to throws. Quick enough to elude the initial tackler and pick up yards after the catch. Functional blocker. Lined up inside and outside and has punt-return experience.
Has a lean build and relatively small hands. Needs to get stronger in order to combat the jam. Not an explosive athlete. Average initial quickness into routes. Lacks elite top-end speed to beat defenses vertically. Bland, unrefined route runner. Lets throws into his body. Inconsistent traffic player. Average production and playmaking.
Priority free agent
Adequate-sized, monotone, fairly nondescript receiver lacking exceptional athletic traits for the pro game and will need to prove himself in the return game to stick.
