Notes:

(Arms measured 31 inches at Boston College pro day, 32 3/4 at UMass.) Also was a track and field standout as a New Jersey prep. Redshirted in 2007. Played all 12 games in ’08 (wore jersey No. 15), recording 18 receptions for 234 yards (13-yard average) and zero touchdowns. In ’09, tallied 24-288-1 (12.0) in 11 games (three starts). Started all 22 games the next two seasons — totaled 56-747-6 (13.3) in ’10 (11 starts) and 60-759-4 (12.6) in ’11 (11 starts). In his career, also rushed 12 times for 152 yards (12.7) and two touchdowns, returned 16 kickoffs for 286 yards (17.9) and brought back 25 punts for 252 yards (10.1).

Summary:

Does not possess the speed or “salsa zest” of NFL breakout star Victor Cruz, a former UMass teammate, but has ability to carve out a pro career of his own. Has an athletic build, shows smooth movement skills and is quick in and out breaks. While his production was hindered by poor quarterback play, Talley has worked outside and inside and has punt- and kickoff-return experience, and comes from a I-AA program that recently has produced several NFL products. Lets some throws into his body and requires some more polish, but could be draftable given intriguing combination of size, tape and workout numbers (41½-inch vertical, broad jump of 10 feet 8 inches, short shuttle of 4.09 seconds, 3-cone drill time of 6.65 seconds).
