Strengths

  • Big target over the middle and in the red zone
  • Rare size for the position - height, length and bulk
  • Strong hands
  • Can play inline - has the build and strength to be a factor as a blocker
  • Solid intermediate receiver
  • Physical tools
  

Weaknesses

  • Decision making - suspended from senior season for improper benefits from an agent
  • Questions about attitude
  • Lacks the speed to be a threat down the seam
  • Inconsistent production - caught 2 or fewer passes in 6 of 12 games in 2009 including just 20 catches during the final 10 games of the season (12 in first 2 games)
  • Not the blocker you would expect for a guy his size
  • Conditioning - how will he respond to a year off
  • Only a 1 year starter
