Notes:

Played all over the field as a Virginia prep, including wide receiver, defensive back, kick returner, punter and placekicker, in addition to being an all-state lacrosse player. Spent the season at split end while redshirting in 2007. Started all 14 games — the first five at split end and last nine at flanker — in ’08, grabbing a team-leading 36 passes for 408 yards (11.3-yard average) and zero touchdowns. Hauled in 30-614-2 (20.5) while playing in all 13 games with 12 starts at flanker. Was the starter in all 14 games at split end in ’10 and hauled in 39-732-3 (team-leading 18.8 avg.). Has graduated with a degree in finance and is working on a second undergraduate degree. Made all 14 starts at flanker in ’11 and hauled in 60-904-3 (15.1) and returned eight punts for 52 yards (6.5-yard average) and zero TDs. Was the punter in four games, booting 13 punts for an average of 43.5 yards with a long of 61 and three dropped inside the 20-yard line. Has one career fumble.

Positives:

Controlled, efficient mover and route runner. Tracks and adjusts — good body control. Dependable hands. Concentrates in traffic and will pay a price to make contested catches. Sits down in zone windows. Aware along the boundary. Tough and durable. Productive four-year starter. Smart, hardworking and coachable.

Negatives:

Short arms. Needs to get stronger. Average athletic ability and flexibility. Timed speed does not correlate to vertical ability. Lacks ideal slot quickness to separate vs. man coverage. Too many catches are contested or schemed for him. Average physicality and functional strength to sustain as a blocker. Does not project as impact punt returner.

Summary:

Good-sized, aware, dependable, monotone receiver who will have to make a living moving the chains short-to-intermediate, and would help himself proving the ability to learn multiple positions and contribute on special teams.
