2006 Biletnikoff Award winner...First Team All-American in both 2005 and 2006...2006 ACC Player of the Year...First Team All-ACC all three seasons at Georgia Tech...Has decided to skip senior season to enter draft...Widely considered the best player in this draft regardless of position...A freakish athlete who combines a 6-4, 237-pound frame with 4.4 speed, a 45-inch vertical leap and a 335-pound bench press...The best hands the college game has seen in a long time...Has a flare for the unbelievable play, routinely making seemingly impossible catches...Scored 15 touchdowns as a junior...Racked up huge collegiate numbers despite the fact that he played with Reggie Ball, Tech's painfully inconsistent quarterback...Finds open spots in the zone and is outstanding after the catch...Does not fumble the football...Likes to line up wide...Worthy of the top pick and won't make it out of the top five.
