Notes:

Also played defensive back and basketball as a Louisiana prep. Appeared in all 13 games as a true freshman in 2008, mostly on special teams, and recorded no offensive statistics but made six tackles. Was converted to tight end before the ’09 season and grabbed the first five passes (all for first downs) of his career for 82 yards (16.4-yard average) and two touchdowns in 13 games. Started two games when LSU opened with two tight ends. In ’10, saw action in 10 games with three starts and recorded 16-198-0 (12.4). Missed the first three games with an ankle injury. Caught 18-179-1 (9.9) in 14 games (three starts) in ’11.

Positives:

Athletic build — looks like an oversized receiver. Accelerates off the line and has speed to stretch zones vertically. Shows the ability to track, extend and catch with his hands. Flashes big-play ability. Functional move blocker to inhibit linebackers. Durable. Has some upside.

Negatives:

Undersized — lacks ideal length and bulk. Is a bit high-cut and tightly wound, and route running needs work. Average suddenness to separate vs. man coverage. Marginal in-line blocker. Lets throws into his body and has too many concentration drops. Questionable competitiveness in a crowd. Poor awareness. Minimal career production. Needs to be prodded. 

Summary:

Athletic, muscular, compactly built pass catcher with upside who would fit best in a receiving role in the pros. However, he will have to get stronger and prove his mettle by showing improved focus, toughness and consistency.
