5092, 185, 4.45

Notes: From St. Petersburg, FL. Dual-threat quarterback in high school. Also excelled on the basketball court. Played in 8 games, saw modest action at wide receiver, with 2 rushing attempts for 20 yards as a true freshman in 2015. Played in 13 games and caught 25 passes for 194 yards and 1 touchdown in 2016. In 14 games, he caught 84-815-5 and had 2 punt returns for 42 yards in 2017. Played in 13 games, caught 69-546-1, rushed 3-12, and returned punts 22-217 (9.9 avg.) in 2018. He also threw for 2 touchdowns on trick plays during his college career. Finished his Tigers career as school’s all-time leader in receptions with 178. Earned his bachelor’s degree in December 2018.

Positives: Quick, fast and versatile. Good hands. Catches the ball well. Gets open and catches a lot of passes. Runs crisp patterns with good burst out of his breaks. Very effective, darting runner after the catch. Very shifty and elusive but is aggressively taking the ball upfield at all times. Can make defenders miss. Turns a lot of short flips into big gainers. Can line up in the backfield.

Negatives: Smallish and lacks the overall frame to win a lot in contested ball situations. Not often used as a down-the-field receiver.

Summary: Has the tools to carve out a niche in the NFL on special teams, as a punt returner, and slot receiver.
