Analysis

Strengths

Good frame with room to add a little more muscle. Very good hands with ability to make contested catches as well as secure the ones he is supposed to. Creates small pockets of separation with quality stemming of routes. Understands how to vary speed in routes. Shows some physicality and a willingness to block. His 2013 tape was much better than 2014's, as he dealt with ankle issues in 2014.

Weaknesses

Played with a high ankle sprain his final season and tore two ligaments in his ankle, ending his season. Lacks top-end speed and there are concerns about whether he will have any speed or explosiveness after injury. Slow to get into and out of his breaks. Tends to round off his routes. Won't eat cushion to threaten cornerbacks over first 5-7 yards. Must sustain longer as a blocker.

Draft Projection

Priority free agent

Bottom Line

Possession receiver coming off of a season-­ending ankle surgery, which could drop him below acceptable level of speed and athleticism for the position. Might need to add more muscle and become a strong, slot target who can extend a drive on third down to have any kind of a shot. Uphill battle for the Boise wide receiver as he recovers from injury.
