Notes:
Earned a spot on the All-Pac 10 First Team in 2008 after hauling in 47 receptions for 672 yards and 10 touchdowns...Did not play one game as a junior in 2009 after going through back surgery...Is a very tough and competitive player that plays with a chip on his shoulder...A tremendous blocker on the line and in space, and is also impressive in beating the jam at the line of scrimmage...Uses his above average hands to haul in passes, and his excellent route running usually helps find open spaces...Creates mismatches in the redzone thanks to his height and long arms...Durability is obviously a concern, as back problems tend to linger.
