Profile
Picked with the 12th overall selection in the 1997 draft, he never lived up to the billing that spot expected of him following a great college career with the Gators. Having been a starter for his first two seasons, he lost his starting role in 1999 and was no more than a fourth-string receiver by the end of 2001. The Bucs made no effort to sign him after that season and he joined the exodus of ex-Florida Gators heading to Steve Spurrier's first NFL job with the Redskins but did not make the team in Washington and was out of the NFL for good.
