Positives: Excellent burst off the line. ... Can accelerate past the corner down the sideline. ... Uses nice body control and leaping ability to get up to catch the ball at its highest point, even in traffic. ... Adjusts to back-shoulder ball. ... Sells the head fake. ... Uses his hands to create separation. ... Returned from mid-2006 surgery to repair torn meniscus/MCL in less than a month. ... Good bloodlines. One of his cousins is former Wolverine and NFL starting offensive lineman Bubba Paris. Negatives: Only average size and build. ... Really needs to work on his run blocking, whiffs when cutting and doesn't sustain well. ... Does lose concentration when trying to run before the catch or hearing footsteps. ... Needs to show he can run all of the routes and be tough over the middle at his size. ... Even coach Lloyd Carr called him out on his inconsistent play earlier in 2007.
