Given first name is Xiangdre. The Florida prep didn’t play football until his junior season but starred on the basketball court, where he was an All-State selection and MVP of the championship game. Appeared in four games as a true freshman in 2008, making one catch for eight yards. Saw action in all 13 contests with five starts in ’09, grabbing 11 passes for 101 yards (9.2-yard average) and two touchdowns. Took on a much bigger role in the offense in ’10, starting 10-of-13 games in which he played and hauling in 17-198-1 (11.6). Did not play in the Chick-Fil-A Bowl after being ruled academically ineligible. Saw action in 12 games with nine starts at tight end in ’11, catching 7-69-0 (9.9).Positives:
Has a big, projectable frame with room for added bulk. Adjusts to throws and has good hands to snatch balls outside his frame. Flashes ability as a blocker (see Clemson 2010 vs. Da’Quan Bowers). Able to fit on linebackers.Negatives:
Is lean and needs to bulk up — limited functional strength. Unreliable in-line blocker — needs to play with better leverage and more consistent intensity. Lazy route runner — stiff-hipped, telegraphs patterns and gives up break points. Nondescript production. Ceded his starting job to a freshman. Poor instincts. Marginal character — immature, unmotivated and dispassionate. Questionable toughness. Does not have a mind for the game and will require a babysitter.Summary:
Raw, underpowered, underachieving TE prospect with growth potential and good hands whose alarming intangibles and basketball mentality will turn teams off.
