Notes:

Arkansas native played all 12 games (one start) as a true freshman in 2008, recording 18 receptions for 273 yards (15.2-yard average) and two touchdowns. Started 8-of-13 games in ’09 and led the Razorbacks in receiving with 48-894-7 (18.6). Started 7-of-8 games in which he played in ’10, managing 46-659-6 (14.3). Tweaked a hamstring against Alabama, sprained an ankle against Mississippi and suffered a season-ending torn patellar tendon injury in his right knee against Vanderbilt. Had a disappointing season in ’11, grabbing only 21-240-0 (11.4) in 11 games (two starts). Missed the Troy game (death of grandmother) and the Vanderbilt game with right knee soreness. Has two career fumbles.

Positives:

Terrific size — NFL musculature with very long arms and big hands. Has a big catching radius. Extends to pluck throws. Effective jump-ball receiver — adjusts to the ball in flight and goes after it aggressively. Uses his body to shield defenders on slants and go over top of smaller DBs. Competitive blocker with strength to stalk outside.

Negatives:

Builds to adequate speed. Straight-linish mover. Needs to refine route running — gets forced off his rail and is not precise. Questionable physicality and toughness over the middle. Has some concentration drops. Limited wiggle and creativity after the catch. Did not score a touchdown as a senior. Not a self starter. Has been hurt the last two seasons and durability could be concerning. Mental toughness, focus and maturity need to be investigated.

Summary:

Big, lean, outside-the-numbers, West Coast leaper who peaked as a sophomore, was affected by injury and slid down the pecking order in a deep, talented WR corps at Arkansas. Did not regain his form as a senior, and career path is suspiciously reminiscent of Marcus Monk, a comparable Razorbacks receiver who flamed out.
