Pros: Very athletic for his size with a 40 time in the 4.72-4.74 range at his pro day and a 35 1/2 inch vertical jump. "Good run blocker and downfield blocker. Gets squared inline and drives defenders. Good hands and can extend for the catch." (1)

Cons: Played at the FCS level, although he was on the FCS Championship winning team. Wasn't particularly productive at the collegiate level with only 49 career receptions in 41 games and seven career touchdowns. "Lumbering stride and seems slow to change direction." (1)
