Notes:

Threw for more than 4,500 yards and 41 touchdowns as a South Carolina prep quarterback who also played baseball. Attended Hargrave Military Academy in 2006 and redshirted in ’07 at Coastal Carolina as a QB. Missed most of ’08 spring practice because of an illness but saw action in six games in the fall, completing 6-of-17 passes (35.3 percent) for 47 yards with zero touchdowns and one interception. Rushed 22 times for 61 yards (2.8-yard average) and one touchdown. In ’09, appeared in nine games (three starts at QB), throwing for 27-53-289-3-6 (50.9) and rushing for 49-163-3 (3.3). Moved to tight end (also backup QB) to see more playing time in ’10, grabbing 19 passes for 218 yards (11.5-yard average) and one TD. Rushed 2-15-0 (7.5). Played tight end and quarterback in ’11, seeing action in eight games with five starts. Threw for 15-38-209-2-0 (39.5), rushed 18-41-0 (2.3) and grabbed 11-233-3 (school-record 21.2).

Positives:

Well-proportioned build with room for added bulk. Athletic movement skills. Deceptive speed (see 83-yard rushing TD called back vs. Towson ’09). Catches naturally — tracks, adjusts and extends outside his frame. Flashes playmaking ability — gained more than 21 yards per catch as a senior. Smart. Has upside.

Negatives:

Needs to get stronger and continue growing into his frame. Has been hurt and durability could be an issue. Can be jammed off the line and knocked off course. Fairly straight-linish. Average run strength. Finesse blocker. Faced marginal competition. Relatively inexperienced — still learning positional nuances and developing instincts. 

Summary:

Converted quarterback with raw size, speed and receiving ability. Needs to be coached up and spend more time in the weight room but has moldable tools as a detached pass catcher.
