First Team Conference USA selection in 2011 as a defensive end, but has entered the draft as a tight end...Impressed at the NFL Combine with a 4.56 40-yard dash and a 37 inch vertical leap...An all-state tight end in high school...Raw with a lot of untapped potential on the offensive side of the ball.
