Strengths: Adequate size for a WR, with good strength and weight for the position – Can stretch the field vertically and make the big play – Tracks the ball well while the ball is in the air – Makes the over the shoulder catch routinely – Exhibits plus body control and the ability to adjust to poor throws – Catches the ball and turns up field in one motion, gets up field as quick as any WR – Has shown the ability to win 50-50 balls and can go up and get it – At his best when working the middle of the field – Great straight line speed, ran 4.37 at combine – Makes catches in tight areas.
Weaknesses: Doesn’t play as fast as he was timed – Doesn’t consistently create separation against man to man coverage – When he is open, he allows the ball to get into his pads almost every time. Actually exhibits much better hands when asked to make the tough catch – Not a very polished route runner, doesn’t work his way back to QB – Loses some speed out of his breaks – Drops too many balls – Doesn’t appear explosive, more of a build up speed guy, takes time to get going – Was suspended for part of the 2011 season as part of the “Tattoo Scandal” at OSU.
