Strengths

  • Good body control
  • Tremendous red zone option - Notre Dame's career TD record holder
  • Underrated blocker
  • Tough to jam at the line
  • 3 year starter
  • Hard worker - proved he could adjust to a new scheme
  • Gained over 1000 yards receiving the last 2 years
       

Weaknesses

  • Not a great route runner although improved

  • Lacks ideal timed speed
  • Slow out of his breaks at times
  • Durability - Has battled leg and shoulder injuries throughout his ND career
