WR | (5-9, 178, 4.62) | Oregon
By Pro Football Weekly

Notes: Started eight games as an 18-year-old freshman in 1999. Started every game in 2000 and won All-Pacific-10 honors in '01 as a receiver and punt returner despite playing with a separated left shoulder. Caught 29 passes for 452 yards and two touchdowns in 1999; 52-780-5 in 2000; and 49-647-8 in '01. Also returned 36 punts for 282 yards (7.8-yard average) in 2000 and 32-465-2 (14.5) in '01. Started 12-of-13 games in '02, catching 40-784-5 with a long of 84. Averaged 19.6 yards per catch. Carried eight times for 79 yards.

Positives: Quick, nifty, shifty, aware and productive punt returner and receiver. Adjusts to the ball quickly. Good athletic ability, agility and elusiveness. More quick than fast. Very tough and has very good football intelligence. Good competitor and warrior. Tough. Maximizes size and talent. Fine returner with receiver skills. Has some make-you-miss qualities.

Negatives: Does not have great size or top-end speed. Not very explosive in and out of breaks. Tiny body. Size is a huge concern. Might not be more than a No. 3, slot receiver.

Summary: Has all the qualities you look for in a return man and could develop into a solid slot receiver.
