Notes:
First Team All-Pac 12 Conference selection in 2012, racking up 91 receptions for 1,244 yards and 11 touchdowns, while adding 142 yards and two more scores as a runner...Saw an increase in production in each of his four seasons at Oregon State...Shined at the NFL Combine, running a 4.45 40-yard dash while ranking among the top performing receivers in the bench press (20 reps), 20-yard shuttle (4.02), 60-yard shuttle (11.16) and vertical leap (37.0 inches)...Incredible quickness off the line of scrimmage and regularly loses his defenders...Large catch radius...Not afraid to lower his shoulder to gain extra yards...Doesn't always attack the ball at its highest point...Often outmuscled by more physical cornerbacks.
