Notes:

The Newport News, Va., native was a dual-threat quarterback as a prep, who also played wide receiver, free safety and defensive end. Redshirted and spent the 2007 season as quarterback. Was moved to tight end in ’08 and saw action in five games on special teams, where he blocked two punts. In ’09, he caught 18 passes for 251 yards (13.9-yard average) and two touchdowns on his way to first-team all-conference honors in 10 games. Recorded 5-55-0 (11.0) in eight games in ’10, missing three games with a torn MCL in his left knee. Played in all 11 games in ’11, catching 21-371-2 (17.7).

Positives:

Physically talented — intriguing length, speed and athletic ability. Covers ground with long, fluid strides and can threaten the field vertically. Has a 42-inch vertical. Adjusts to throws. Competitive after the catch. Has some upside.

Negatives:

Has struggled to add/maintain bulk and lean body reflects weight-room work ethic. Pedestrian career production against marginal competition. Raw route runner. Shaky hands. Marginal in-line blocker. Could struggle to grasp an NFL playbook and require simple assignments. Hothead with an inconsistent personality — was ejected from the HBCU All-Star Bowl for fighting. Does not have a pro work ethic.

Summary:

Lean, athletic, underdeveloped, receiver-sized, “flex” tight end with raw physical ability and discouraging intangibles. Developmental project requiring patience and has to be managed closely to have a chance.
