Explanation of Player Grading System


Strengths

A good route runner. Natural hands catcher. Very quick and deceptively strong – good after the catch ability. Above average height and bulk for a WR.

Weaknesses

Doesn’t get great separation. Only has 2 years of D1A experience and 1 full year of starting experience. Doesn’t use his body to shield defenders. Below average timed speed.

Analysis

Most likely only a reserve wideout in the NFL. Doesn’t test great and doesn’t get great separation on film, but he’s got good hands and runs good routes which should allow him to compete in camp. Is close to David Tyree as a prospect.

Experience

One year starter at Utah. Transferred from Pasadena City College JUCO after two seasons.

2008: Honorable mention All-MWC (special teams).
