Prepped in California, where he also competed in the high jump. Saw very limited action in 10 games as a true freshman in 2010 and had one catch for 10 yards and no touchdowns. Started seven of 13 games in 2010, totaling 21 catches for 293 yards (14.0-yard average) and two TDs. Started all 27 games from 2012-13: Produced 42 catches for 470 yards (11.2) and a TD in 2012 (14 games) and 51 catches for 753 yards (14.8) and 12 TDs in 2013 (13 games). Team captain.
Looks the part with terrific size, long arms and an NFL musculature. Can elevate and snatch throws above his head. Strong after the catch. Sheer size and brawn to block out corners outside. Has hustle traits. Knows where the sticks are and is very football smart. Excellent intangibles -- team captain with a professional approach and leadership traits. Was a 21-year-old senior.
Lacks elite top-end speed to separate vertically. Shows some hip tightness. Is not fluid or sudden out of breaks (wastes steps). Not a natural catcher -- lets throws into his body, double catches some and drops catchable throws.
Big, tough, athletic, West Coast receiver who broke out as a senior. Has a mixture of "Z" and "X" traits and could even be viewed as a developmental H-back prospect.
