Scouting Report
An experienced and natural receiver, he is most comfortable out of the slot. Will range over the middle and extend his arms for the ball; he is deceptively fluid in space for his size. Will lower his shoulder and punish defenders to max out gains. An instinctive runner, he will follow blockers and accelerate after the catch. Is a little lacking as an inline blocker. Is prone to unforced drops when he cannot turn and stop. His production has been curtailed due to frequent injuries.
Long Range Potential: Productive, rotational tight end, when healthy.
