What did Shawn Jefferson have to say:
“He has a good skill-set, and he catches the ball really well. He just needs to tighten up on the details. In a lot of aspects he is raw. He is one of these self-made guys who made it on his own, nobody recruited him. So what he does is he reverts back to a lot of the stuff he did (in college) at William & Mary, but that is not what we want. He needs to do the details of what we want. But he is going to be fine. He is going to be a player in this league.”
Again, this looks like one of the big projects who should be looked at for the 2016 season as a breakthrough candidate.
As for this year, I would expect that the Tennessee Titans find a way to work him in on kick return and use his movement skills as a rotational receiver. It wouldn’t surprise me if he had an inconspicuous 2015 stat line like a 25 receptions, 375 yards, and one touchdown.
However, I am sure that if he he has a stat line like that, it will spell out good things for him next year considering that he will have to get that in limited reps. Hopefully he can take some special teams snaps away from Dexter McCluster so that this team can free up some cap room for next year.
