Notes:

Named Northwest Ohio’s Player of the Year after rushing for 2,381 yards and 34 touchdowns, passing for 11 touchdowns and kicking 47 extra points. He complied 8,800 yards of total offense in his prep career. Started all 12 games as a true freshman in 2009, leading the nation’s freshmen with 82 receptions for 1,159 yards (14.1-yard average) and seven touchdowns and rushing 11 times for 55 yards (5.0-yard average) and one touchdown. Was also used on special teams — returned 18 kickoffs for 457 yards (25.4-yard average) and nine punts for 97 yards (10.8-yard average). In ’10, he was named the MAC Special Teams Player of the Year after returning 28-871-3 (31.1) on kickoffs and 19-72-0 (3.8) on punt returns. Was the only FBS player to return three kickoff returns for a touchdown and led the conference in kickoff-return average. As a receiver, he hauled in a team-leading 99-1,105-8 (11.2). Became the first player in MAC history to return two kickoffs for touchdowns in a game (Central Michigan).  Named to the first-team all-MAC squad as a wide receiver, punt returner and kick returner in ’11, becoming the only player in BCS history to make first-team all-league at three positions. Caught a school-record 125-1,182-10 (9.5), also returning 34-856-1 (25.2) on kickoffs and 18-196-1 (10.9) on punts in 13 starts. His 306 career receptions tied the MAC record and set the school mark. Caught at least two passes in all 38 career contests. The former prep quarterback completed 5-of-8 passes for 104 yards (62.5 percent), four touchdowns and one interception in his career. Has 13 career fumbles.

Positives:

Good balance and agility. Can stem his routes and set up defenders. Extends with soft hands to catch. Fields kicks confidently and shows nice vision as a returner — has shown he can take it the distance (five career scores). Outstanding career production. Did not look out of place against Ohio State. 

Negatives:

Diminutive stature and has short arms. Limited functional strength. Not an explosive athlete (30-inch vertical was worst among receivers at Combine). Average field speed and leg extension. Ordinary burst and does not pop out of breaks. Average elusiveness and creativity after the catch. Marginal blocker. Numbers are inflated by short passes and mid-major defenses. Ball security has been an issue (lost 8-of-13 fumbles). Yards-per-catch average decreased every year and bottomed out below 10 yards as a junior.

Summary:

Small-framed, highly productive, quicker-than-fast slot receiver/motion player and kick returner. Blunt knife type of athlete who lacks an extra gear to compensate for his size, as he does not show elite twitch or burst and will have to be schemed free in the pros.
