Strengths

Has capability of playing in­line or as move tight end. Build-up speed allows him to threaten Y-­seam from off line of scrimmage. Hands catcher with excellent hand­-eye coordination and can go get the rock in traffic. Shows enough burst to create separation from linebackers and safeties over the top. Does an adequate job of shielding defenders from the pass and posting them up in space. Strong runner after the catch in screen game and will carry defenders with him into the end zone. Willing blocker who comes from program where run blocking is demanded. Latches onto target with centered blow and shows enough strength to sustain. Looks for work downfield as blocker to help spring explosive runs.

Weaknesses

Lacks suddenness and crisp feet in his route work underneath. Could be faced with high number of heavily contested catches in short and intermediate routes. Not much of a salesman with his routes and needs more juice from stem at top of his routes. Would improve separation by meeting physical defenders with increased physicality. Hands need work. Was late getting hands catch­ ready and had nine drops over two seasons for drop rate of almost 11 percent. Catch radius just average for his size. Head ducker as run blocker and can lose track of target and whiff from time to time.
