Height: 6-3 | Weight: 217 | 40-Time: 4.60

Strengths:
Has excellent size and bulk with a solid frame...Very productive...Has soft, reliable hands...Shows terrific body control and ball skills...He's more quick than fast...Can run after the catch a bit...Smart, hard working and tough...Still has a little upside.

Weaknesses:
Does not have great timed speed and lacks a burst...Is not much of a deep threat and won't stretch the field vertically...Is just a slightly above average blocker...Still relatively new to the position & must work on mastering its techniques / nuances.

Notes:
Began his college career as a defensive back and only moved to wide receiver in '05...In high school he won state titles in the 100, 200, 400 and long jump...Had a huge senior campaign and really gave his draft stock a boost...Profiles as more of a possession guy in the NFL but could surprise if he can run better than expected.

If the Lions trade Roy Williams how early would we draft Jordy Nelson.

Height/weight? Those are important for me...

Love the size... but the speed hurts.

Let's see how he times. If he's faster than the report would lead you to believe, he'd be worth a shot.

with his size and ball skills, maybe we could teach him the basics of tackling and make him play corner.
