Florida prep. Redshirted in 2009 when he suffered a broken foot. In '10, caught eight balls for 113 yards (14.1-yard average) and zero touchdowns, but was limited to eight games (torn meniscus). Lost his 2011 season while nursing a hamstring injury. Started 25-of-26 games the next two seasons and was the Cardinals' leading receiver both years -- produced 50-628-2 (12.6) in '12 and 58-780-5 (13.4) in '13. Did not start against Miami in Russell Athletic Bowl when he gave way to a two-tight end formation. Graduated and was granted a sixth year of eligibility but elected to leave school. Injured his left thumb during NFL Scouting Combine drills.
Makes good adjustments to the ball and has a fairly wide catching radius. Runs with urgency after the catch and carries a swagger. Solid production -- two-time team-leading receiver. Has a 40-inch vertical jump and recorded the best three-cone time (6.53 seconds) of any receiver at the combine.
Limited functional strength to escape tight press coverage. Lacks a feel for coverage to beat zones. Can be fazed by traffic -- will alter his routes and make some concentration drops. Not a nuanced route runner and creates little separation with savvy -- gears down out of his breaks and gives up break points. Struggles to escape man coverage. Not creative after the catch. Soft blocker -- does not finish. Durability was a considerable issue early in his college career (missed 17 games with knee, foot and hamstring injuries).
Round 7-Priority free agent
Runs a lot of simple digs, slants and bubble screens and is effective as a short-area, stationary target when he has free releases. Could compete for a job in the slot.
