Analysis

Strengths

Tall target with massive catch radius. Well-proportioned and unusual athleticism and coordination for his size. Releases quickly and is fluid in space.

Weaknesses

Struggles to set edge and stay engaged as a blocker against lower level of competition. Suffered season-ending knee injuries early in 2012 and 2013 seasons. Very little production as a pass-catcher.

Draft Projection

Undrafted

Bottom Line

Long-shot project with tremendous height and good athleticism. He might possess the necessary athletic traits worthy of a camp invite.
