High school receiver who also played basketball and competed in track and field as a Texas prep. Played 12 games as a true freshman in 2008, recording four receptions for 22 yards (5.5-yard average) and zero touchdowns. Needed surgery to repair a high right ankle sprain in the spring of ’09. Played all 13 games in the season and snagged 3-25-0 (8.3). Broke out in ’10 — was the Tigers’ MVP after racking up 90-762-5 (8.5) in 13 starts. Finished as the Tigers’ second-leading receiver in ’11 after grabbing 50-523-3 (10.3) in 13 starts at tight end. Team captain. Graduated in December.Positives:
Quick-handed, natural catcher — can stab the ball out of the air. Adjusts well to its flight, tracks it very well in the air and times jumps. Makes difficult catches look easy — stretches out and snags the ball. Good field awareness. Can dot the “i”. Willingly enters traffic and will catch the ball in a crowd. Exceptional straight-line speed. Good competitiveness, work ethic and durability.Negatives:
Was seldom used to block and it clearly showed in Combine blocking drills — has no anchor substance or power in his body and is too soft-tempered in his approach on the second level. Is not an elite athlete. Functioned in a simple scheme and is not a savvy route runner — will need to learn how to diagnose coverages. Shows little strength or creativity after the catch. Can secure the ball more tightly (stripped twice vs. Kansas State).Summary:
Lanky, underdeveloped, finesse seam catcher whose production slipped as a senior after QB Blaine Gabbert departed early. Is a converted receiver who lines up detached and will not factor as a blocker but knows how to work the seams and can contribute in the slot.
