Mature, has handled his role at Miami well.

Negatives: Lacks any real suddenness... Struggles to create separation... Does not look like a natural route runner, will tip his breaks and round off some routes... Receiving skills are still a big question mark... Has just ten career receptions... Is rarely thrown to... Sometimes just flashes his talent... Didn't take advantage of playing time, never lived up to his potential out of high school...

Still raw, a big time boom or bust type prospect.
