WR | (5-8 3/8, 175, 4.4) | Furman
by Pro Football Weekly
Drafted by: Kansas City, Pick 2, Round 7 , Overall 208

Notes: Lettered in 1995. Team's top receiver the past three years. Also returned kickoffs. Caught 30 passes for 354 yards and three TDs and returned nine kickoffs for 266 yards and one TD in '97; caught 35-560-3 and returned 11-241-0 in '98; and caught 48-911-5 and returned 16-527-3 in '99. Has run the 40-yard dash in less than 4.4 seconds on grass and in the 4.3-second area on a fast artificial surface.

Positives: Flashes excellent speed and quickness on returns. Returned three kicks for scores in '99. Smooth athlete. Is small but not tiny.

Negatives: Small receiver who may have trouble getting off the line vs. the jam. Lacks large, soft hands and often tries to cradle the ball. Hands do not appear to be good enough for punt returns.

Summary: Will have a chance to catch on because of his speed and kickoff-return ability but will have to improve his hands to the point where he can return punts as well.
