Angular build with ability to track throws and attack them. Effective use of frame, hands and arms to box out or reposition defender when trying to make red-zone catches. Dominated in the red zone against his competition. Uses quick speed-cut to free himself on out-breaking routes. Above-average routes with attention to detail. Smooth pass-catcher with soft hands. Decent after the catch. Has adequate build-up speed. Confident performer from football bloodlines.


Positional blocker in run-heavy offense who needs to show more physicality as a run blocker. Marginal quickness off snap and into routes. Unlikely to threaten cornerbacks enough to back them off. Gets redirected by press coverage and takes a second to ramp back up into his route. Needs to stay lower in routes and show more bend. Produced big numbers against lower level of competition.

Draft Projection

Round 7 or priority free agent

Bottom Line

Lanky, productive former walk-on who got his start at Illinois before transferring to Wisconsin-Whitewater, where he has posted 33 touchdowns over the last two seasons. Shows the ability to win in the red zone against lesser competition, but short-area quickness and athleticism will be questioned as he steps into an NFL camp. Highly competitive and from a football family. Has an NFL shot.
