Positives: Versatile all-around player. Smart, mature, high character individual. Shows soft hands and catches the ball smoothly. Sure handed. Above-average speed and maneuverability. Knows how to get open and find soft spots in the defense. Effective short-to-intermediate-range receiver. Proficient blocker with good technique and intensity. Very effective as lead blocker and in space or on the move. Fights for extra yards after the catch.

Negatives: Has no truly outstanding physical characteristic – size, speed or athletic ability. Isn’t an elite threat in the passing game. Won’t dominate at the point of attack as a traditional in-line blocker.

Summary: Very solid, all-around, complimentary-type football player who will make a team and contribute as a role player.
