I think he actually did wake up being 6'5 and fast as hell with a 43' vertical. Those are the exact things that don't take any work. Work is hitting the weight room, studying technique and applying that on the practice field. There is a reason dude is built like randy moss and still went undrafted.


Sorry but I disagree. 6'5" tall men don't naturally run sub 4.6 forties. It takes a lot of work to get there. And how many young men at the combine posted a 43" vertical last year? I don't know the answer, but I'd guess not many. And I'd guess the one/s that did, aren't even sniffing 6'5". Stephen Hill may be the only person I can remember from last year with similar measurables, and that young man is an absolute beast - physically. And I doubt Randy Moss and Calvin Johnson woke up one day with their physical attributes as well. They worked their butts off.

He likely has a good work ethic, but doesn't know how to study film, and technique, and fully grasp a playbook. He probably needs someone to spend the time to show him how to be an NFL WR. If I'm a head coach, I'd assign someone to spend long periods of time with him.

Okay, from ProFootball Weekly.

So he actually ran a 4.45 at his pro day. That's still blazing for his size, but not Calvin Johnson, Randy Moss type freakish speed. But at 6'5" with a 43" vertical, he'd be hard to defend.

From Newport News, VA. Went to Morgan State. He needs a role model and may not have the right attitude to be a pro.

Seems like he could at least be effective in the redzone. Hope it works out.

The only thing that stands out to me is his height. According to these reports he ran a 4.45-4.56, has "shaky hands" in one report, and seems like a bit of a head case. I'm guessing there are many reasons why he had a mediocre career in a small college and is currently on the practice squad and not on a team's roster. It would be great if the light went on for him and he turned out to be a contributor but I'm not going to bet on it.
