Doesn’t create a ton of separation vertically, but exhibits good awareness and body control when asked to locate the football. Adjust to the throw well, extends his arms and knows how to go up and make a play even when in battle with a corner. Displays good concentration and has the ability to come down with some tough grabs while contorting his body. Is a surprisingly pretty smooth route runner as well on sharply breaking routes.
Does a nice job stemming his route off the line, keeping his feet under him and being precise when asked to snap off a break. Creates a burst for himself as well, even in tight areas, using his big frame to box out corners and isn’t forced to gear down in order to catch his balance.
However, has a tendency to really roll into his routes down the field on vertical routes, starts to drift prematurely and looks content to simply try to just outpace corners to a spot. Needs to tighten up his angles down the field. Displays a good feel vs. zone/off concepts though, will find soft spots underneath and isn’t afraid to extend and make plays over the middle.
For his size can create after the catch. Again, accelerates well with the ball in his hands, displays the fluidity to side step defenders even at full speed and is a bit more sudden then his size would indicate. Isn’t overly physical as a blocker, but gets after it, shows some effort and works hard to stay engaged through the play.
Impression: Possesses good size, good body control and hand eye coordination, and for his size and a pretty fluid athlete as well. Isn’t a dynamic athlete, but should be able to find a way to make and earn playing time on an NFL roster."
However, his average speed and suddenness prevent him from consistently separating from man coverage and lets too many throws into his body."
Solid all-around receiver with adequate size and speed; also runs nice routes and is a very good blocker;
Will make the tough catch in traffic, but will also drop the occasional pass;
Caught 50 passes in 2010 when he averaged almost 16 yards per catch, but only scored 4 times;"
