Notes:

Was a quarterback and safety as a New Jersey prep, and also played basketball. Began his college career at West Virginia, where he redshirted in 2007. Had a felony assault charge reduced to a misdemeanor disturbance and trespassing charge after having an alleged physical altercation with a female residence hall advisor. Transferred to Temple in ’08 and had to sit out the season per NCAA requirement. Had hernia surgery on his right side in the spring. Was arrested for disorderly conduct in April 2009. Played in all 13 games (seven starts) in ’09 and hauled in 13 catches for 145 yards (11.2-yard average) and two touchdowns. Started 9-of-11 games in ’10 and caught 21-247-2 (11.8). Did not play against Akron (broke team rule). In ’11, started 12-of-13 games played and tallied 35-479-2 (13.7). Only non-start was because team opened in a three-WR set. 

Positives:

Very athletic. Flexible hips and fluid movement skills. Very good balance and body control. Catches easily and has a wide catching radius. Effective move blocker — fits on linebackers and is able to adjust to moving targets.

Negatives:

Not tough or physical — could stand to get stronger and become more of a finisher. Gets outmuscled in line. Too reliant on athletic ability — not a savvy route runner. Limited elusiveness and tackle-breaking ability. Is immature and does not know what it means to be a pro. Character and dependability need to be investigated.

Summary:

Athletic, finesse, high-maintenance “move” player with tweener traits and off-the-field red flags.  Would benefit from the presence of a demanding father-figure presence in a city far from the East Coast, where trouble has followed him.
