Notes:

Three-time first-team all-state selection at wide receiver as a Missouri prep. Saw limited action in seven games as a true freshman in 2008, grabbing one 15-yard pass. Started all 13 contests at “Z” receiver in ’09 and hauled in 23 passes for 418 yards (18.2-yard average) and two touchdowns. Helped out at kickoff returner for the last five games with six returns for 136 yards (22.7-yard average). Held down the “Z” receiver position again in ’10, posting 39-420-3 (11.2) in 13 starts. Hauled in 29-369-5 (12.7) in 13 starts at the “Z” receiver in ’11. Graduated in December in just 31⁄2 years. Never lost a fumble.

Positives:

Terrific size — well put together with long arms. Intriguing timed speed and leaping ability (has a 39-inch vertical). Can extend to catch outside his frame. Good field awareness. Competitive after the catch. Strong weight-room numbers. Experienced, durable, three-year starter. Solid personal and football character.

Negatives:

Does not play to measurables. Average initial quickness. Builds to speed. Average burst and flexibility in/out of breaks. Route running needs work (limited tree). Struggles to track and adjust. Has concentration drops and is inconsistent making contested catches. Ordinary career production.

Summary:

Long-armed, size-speed prospect with outstanding leaping ability, though he is more of a short-to-intermediate receiver whose tape and production are less intriguing than his measurables.
