He's also got really deceptive speed .... think about the guy he almost chased down from behind on the ST play a few games back. ( I forget what game that was).

Considering that he out performed all of those guys taken ahead of him at that workout , I think they got value for the pick.

He hasnt gotten a lot of opportunity to get on the field but when he has he's made the most of them - Remember the first catch he made in preseason bouncing off of multiple defenders and taking it the distance ?
I think the Texans got value for the pick, too.

I studied a majority of his games the last 3 years in college.
Good route runner, good hands, play the ball out in front, going into traffic, etc.

I thought he was a solid mid second round guy.
