Notes:

Father, Jeff Sr., starred for the Aggies and spent six years as a safety for the 49ers (1984-89) before injury ended his career. Chose the Aggies over offers from Texas, Oklahoma, Florida and LSU, among others. As a true freshman in 2008, Jeff started 8-of-11 games and totaled 50 receptions for 630 yards (12.6-yard average) and nine touchdowns. Did not play against Oklahoma (quad). Started 7-of-9 games played in ’09 and managed 41-568-7 (13.9). Broke his right fibula against Utah State and missed four games. Started all 13 games in ’10 and totaled 72-1,066-12 (14.8). Sustained an ankle sprain against Oklahoma and was slowed the final four games of the regular season. Logged 70-828-6 (11.8) in 13 games (12 starts) in ’11. Has two career fumbles. Was medically excluded from the Combine for a right foot injury. 

Positives:

Looks every bit the part — outstanding size, stature and length (very long arms and a big wing span). Functionally strong to defeat the jam. Moves fluidly and is flexible in and out of breaks. Advanced route runner. Big catching radius. Has big, soft hands to pluck the ball out of the air and can make one-handed grabs. Terrific leaping ability and body control. Is tough and will play with pain. Mature, intelligent leader by example. Has NFL bloodlines.

Negatives:

Lacks elite top-end speed — will struggle to separate vertically. Drops have been too prevalent — lets some throws into his body and concentration lapses. Does not consistently catch on contact or win “50-50” balls. Average elusiveness and creativity after the catch. Can improve blocking technique. Faltered in the clutch (see Missouri). Regressed as a senior. Has not been able to stay healthy — nagged by leg, hamstring, ankle, toe and hamstring injuries — and durability could be an issue.

Summary:

Big, inconsistent, outside-the-numbers, possession/red-zone receiver whose stock tumbled during a disappointing, injury-plagued senior season when he too often appeared distracted. Flashes playmaking ability but must overcome drops and prove he can stay healthy to fulfill his potential.
