SCOUTING REPORT

Quick, explosive wide out who runs crisp routes, possesses a tremendous work ethic and attitude, plus the toughness to play bigger than his size. He is more quick than he is fast, his change of direction and short area acceleration are some of his greatest attributes. He owns a set of strong, dependable hands and has the knack for being a clutch performer when his team needs a big play. He finished his final year with 785 receiving yards, fifth all-time in single-season school history, on 43 catches, with seven touchdowns in nine games, while earning First Team All-NJAC honors. He has also been named to the All-Academic team during his collegiate career. He learned three different playbooks in four years under new offensive coordinators. While he made a living on burning defenders deep at the DIII-level, he’ll have to make a career working out of the slot as a separation wide out in the NFL. His level of competition and size will be the two labels that he’ll need to overcome. He also needs to continue to develop his route-running tree, an area of his game he has improved immensely leading up to the draft, training with former NFL wide out Matt Campbell (Jets) and tight end Tim Wright (NFL FA) at Parabolic Performance in New Jersey. He timed 4.53 handheld at the National Scouting Combine in February and will have the opportunity to best that mark at Wagner pro day on March 27th.
