After dominating at Hutchinson Community College in Kansas in 2010, came to Tennessee and logged 46 receptions for 778 yards and five touchdowns in only full season at the Division I level...Had nine receptions for 219 yards and a touchdown in a Nov. 3 win over Troy...Showed promise as a rusher as well with 308 yards on 25 carries (12.3 ypc) and three touchdowns...Explosive as a return man as well, with 772 return yards and two touchdowns (one on a kickoff and one a punt)...SEC single-season record 27.6 yard returnaverage...Tennessee school record of 1,858 all-purpose yards...Elite athleticism, running a 4.42 40-yard dash and recording a 37-inch vertical leap at the NFL Combine...Easily creates separation from defenders thanks to a combination of explosiveness, precise route running and agility...Big and physical...Good vision...Solid run blocker...Merely average hands, oftentimes letting the ball into his body rather than snatching it out of the air...Maynot be as seasoned as other top receiving prospects, but freakish athleticism almost assures an early selection.
