FLORIDA ST (ACC)
The Steelers were out in force at the FSU Pro Day, including OC Todd Haley. Mike Tomlin has often said that the Steelers could look to replace Mike Wallace with 'another fast guy, or a bigger guy, a different type of animal'. Here's your different type of animal. The Steelers have tried & failed to supply Ben a decent "Big Target" & this guy might just be that guy.
Strengths: Good combination of size and athleticism for the position. Does a good job of location and adjusting his lanky but fluid frame to make a play on the ball. Long arms and catching radius. Long-strider and eats up yards in a hurry. Very good effort as a blocker. Catch in 30 straight games with natural body control to adjust to off-target throws.
Weaknesses: Struggles to play up to his size and needs to do a better job finishing downfield. Very lean frame and needs to add bulk and looks like a twig. Too often doesn't complete catches or allows the defensive back to out-muscle him. Inconsistent focus at times catching the ball and needs to improve his routes, working back to the ball.
