Analysis

Strengths

Boasts freakish athleticism, including rare leaping ability. Explodes off the line. Fast and sudden. Turns over fluid stride with length and frequency. Stretches the field vertically. Tracks and adjusts to throws and displays terrific body control. Catches easily -- snatches throws out of the air. Good short-area quickness. Darts upfield after the catch. Playmaking ability -- averaged 19.4 yards per catch the last three seasons. Paced all receivers at the combine with a 41-inch vertical jump and tied for the longest broad jump at 11 feet.

Weaknesses

In desperate need of NFL weight training and nutrition -- is rail thin with small hands and weighed the lightest of any combine participant. Can be jammed and re-routed at the line. Questionable toughness to consistently work the middle. Outmuscled in a crowd and struggles to make contested catches. Dabbled in track and is fairly straightlinish. Marginal blocker. Durability is a concern -- has been dinged up and is not built to withstand the physicality of the NFL game.

Draft Projection

Rounds 5-6

Bottom Line

Thin, underdeveloped, confident, field-fast receiver with soft hands. Was a playmaker in a prolific spread offense. Will have to be a slot receiver, given his dependence on a free release, but does not have an ideal skill set to work inside and could require patience.
