Notes:

ousin, DeAngelo Lloyd, was an undrafted free agent defensive lineman from Tennessee who spent time on NFL practice squads and in NFL Europe. Lightly recruited North Carolina prep. As a true freshman in 2008, started 8-of-14 games at split end and produced 30 receptions for 441 yards (14.7-yard average) and two touchdowns with a blocked punt. Played all 13 games in ’09, starting the final 10 at split end, and posted 40-835-5 (20.9). Was the Hokies’ leading receiver for the second consecutive season in ’10 when he started all 14 games and totaled 53-847-6 (16.0). Made 13 starts at split end in ’11 and grabbed 61-761-5 (12.5) to become the Hokies’ all-time leader in receptions and receiving yards. Did not play against Marshall (hamstring). Has four career fumbles. 

Positives:

Has NFL size and is thickly built. Strong and quick to defeat the jam. Good balance and body control. Strong hands to pluck away from his body. Concentrates in traffic. Outstanding leaping ability. Can take a hit and hang on. Competitive and strong after the catch — runs through arm tackles. Effective blocker. Experienced, durable and productive. Dependable character. Hardworking and mature.

Negatives:

Marginal timed speed — cannot run by cornerbacks vertically. Slow out of the blocks. Average suddenness out of breaks to create separation vs. man coverage. Tight hips. Inconsistent hands (occasional concentration drop). Not creative or elusive after the catch.

Summary:

Big, physical, competitive, short-to-intermediate “Z” receiver who plays faster than he times and could be a value pick for a team employing a West Coast offense.
