Notes:

Nicknamed Pee-Wee because he was so short entering high school. Also competed in track and field as a Florida prep. Played all 12 games as a true freshman in 2008, recording 22 catches for 268 yards (12.2-yard average) and five touchdowns. Was the team’s offensive MVP in ’09, when he started all nine games in which he played and totaled 32-533-2 (16.7). Suffered a neck injury against Florida Atlantic and missed three games. Started all 10 games in which he played in ’10, recording 44-794-7 (18.0). Sustained a left ankle sprain against Middle Tennessee and missed two games. Posted 51-606-8 (11.9) in ’11 while starting 12 games at tight end and did not play against Kent State (shoulder). Has tendonitis in his knees.

Positives:

Tall and long. Very productive. Is athletic and covers ground with long, fluid strides. Good leaping ability. Very good ball skills and body control to track and adjust to throws. Has soft hands and catches easily outside his frame. Solid citizen — mature, humble and dependable. Hardworking and football-smart. Dedicated in the weight room with very minimal body fat. Experienced four-year starter. Caught the ball extremely well at the Combine — looked like a receiver plucking the ball.

Negatives:

Lacks bulk — is slender and too easily knocked off course. Weak blocker (needs an angle). Average quickness off the line — limited burst into patterns. Stiff route runner — is not sudden and does not pop out of breaks to separate vs. man coverage. Questionable concentration and toughness to make contested catches. Average strength and creativity after the catch. Physicality leaves something to be desired and could play with more of an edge. Faced mid-major competition. Has dealt with knee tendinitis and long-term durability needs to be examined.

Summary:

Lean, finesse, detached pass catcher with tweener traits. Possesses length, athletic ability and ball skills to factor in the receiving game but needs to bulk up his frame and will have to prove he can adapt to the speed of the NFL game. Durability concerns could affect his draft value.
