Notes:

Was a three-sport standout (basketball and track) as a Texas prep. Appeared in all 14 games as a true freshman in 2008, catching nine passes for 98 yards (10.9-yard average) and zero touchdowns. Also had two rushing attempts for 10 yards. Recorded 37-458-2 (12.4) receiving and 11-92-1 (8.4) rushing in ’09, playing in all 13 games with five starts (three as a fourth receiver and two at “X” receiver). Started 11-of-12 games at “X” receiver in ’10 and hauled in 50-656-3 (13.1) plus 4-22-1 (5.5) on the ground. Did not play against Miami (Ohio) because of a thigh injury. In ’11, he grabbed 17-222-1 (13.1), rushed 2-8-0 (4.0) and returned three kickoffs for 91 yards (30.3-yard average) in 11 games with 10 starts at the “X” receiver. Missed the first two games with a hamstring injury. Only one career fumble.

Positives:

Has long arms. Fluid and flexible. Explosive athlete with outstanding leaping ability (41-inch vertical). Quick feet — can slip the jam, get in and out of breaks cleanly and uncover short-to-intermediate. Sits down in zone windows. Terrific body control and hip swivel to adjust and contort. Catches with his hands. Is tough and will sacrifice his body to make a play. Squats 500 pounds and bench-pressed 225 pounds 22 times at the Combine, tied for best among receivers.  

Negatives:

Workout numbers exceed tape performance. Average career production. Needs to bulk up his frame and get stronger. Struggles to combat press coverage and stay on his route. Inconsistent downfield receiving. Has been nicked up with minor injuries. Could stand to sustain better as a blocker. 

Summary:

Athletic, long-armed, long-striding, fairly raw flash talent with moldable attributes that cannot be taught. Is probably best served learning the flanker position initially but has skills to line up at multiple spots for a team that can afford to be patient with him. Talents might have been hidden playing outside the numbers in four-WR sets with an inconsistent quarterback.
