Draft Analysis:

"A nice slot receiver. The one thing you always hear about slot receivers is that they run routes well. Well, he needs to learn to run routes better." -- Charles Davis

  • 5'9" Height
  • 30" Arm Length
  • 192LBS. Weight
  • 9 3/4" Hands

Overview

Prepped in Maryland, where he was a standout running back, kick returner and safety -- won a pair of state championships, amassed more than 6,500 yards and 90 touchdowns and notched eight kick return scores. Redshirted in 2009. Played all 12 games (one start) in '10 and caught 10 balls for 107 yards (1.7-yard average) and zero touchdowns. Started 10-of-12 games played in '11, snagging 73-833-2 (11.4). Injured his right hamstring against North Carolina State and sat out against Gardner-Webb. Started 9-of-10 games played at flanker in '12, managing 79-763-6 (9.7). Broke his right hand against Duke, missed two games and was restricted by a splint in others. Sat out '13 spring practice while recovering from left ankle surgery. At flanker in the fall, started all eight games played and paced Demon Deacon receivers for the second straight year with 67-803-6 (12.0). Was held out of the season opener against Presbyterian (tight hamstring) and missed the final three games because of a broken collarbone suffered against Syracuse. Owns the school record for career receptions (229).

Analysis

Strengths

Has short-area quickness to separate short-to-intermediate. Good balance and hip flex. Adjusts to throws. Finds soft spots in zone coverage. Effective running drags and crossers. Tough, confident and competitive. Three-year starter. Solid character.

Weaknesses

Lacks ideal height and length -- has extremely short arms and can be hemmed at the line. Limited functional strength. Small catch radius. Lacks elite top-end speed to take the top off. Spotty concentration -- makes some focused grabs and drops others he shouldn't. Marginal blocker. Durability is an issue -- has a small build, has been dinged up and could struggle to stay healthy. Had the smallest wingspan (70 1/2 inches) of any receiver at the combine.

Draft Projection

Round 7-Priority free agent

Bottom Line

Undersized, slippery, competitive inside receiver who brings a possession element to the slot. Lacks ideal explosiveness and will have to prove himself on special teams to earn an extended look.
