Scouting Report
The would-be wide receiver is earning his pro stripes by moonlighting on special teams. He has carved out a niche as a primary punt and kick return specialist while working toward a spot in the receiver rotation. Possesses the fearless demeanor required in the return game minus the raw speed of a true scoring threat; lacks big play ability and has had issues with turnovers. An average skill set as a receiver may limit him to a depth role.
Long Range Potential: Reliable return specialist and depth wide receiver.
