Notes:

Also played basketball and ran track as a Washington prep. Committed to then-head coach Ty Willingham and played all 12 games in ’08 — drew a pair of starts and caught 20 balls for 301 yards (15.1-yard average) and two touchdowns. Started 9-of-12 games in ’09 and snagged 50-866-8 (17.3). Was the Huskies’ leading receiver in ’10, when he totaled 63-1,005-12 (16.0) in 13 starts. Led the team in receiving again in ’11 after posting 47-699-7 (14.9) while starting all 13 games. Team captain. Has one career fumble.

Positives:

Good size. Uses his hands to escape press and releases cleanly. Fluid, controlled mover. Sound route runner — understands how to stem, get in/out of routes and create separation. Goes in traffic areas. Not afraid to make a clutch catch. Lined up outside and inside. Willing blocker. Football-smart. Solid personal and football character.

Negatives:

Inconsistent hands and ball reactions — too many drops. Average speed and suddenness. Not an explosive athlete. Runs a bit upright. Pedestrian leaping ability. Average elusiveness after the catch. Lacks finishing strength as a blocker.

Summary:

Well-built, athletic receiver with solid, if unspectacular, traits across the board, though his playmaking ability is not great enough to overlook persistent drops. Can make a living as a short-to-intermediate, No. 3 or No. 4 WR if he catches more consistently.
