At 6'1-208 pounds, has a good blend of strength & size. At the scouting combine, T.J. ran a 4.43 & a 4.48 in the 40 yard dash and put up 18 reps of 225, placing him in the top 5 for receivers. He also registered a 35 1/2 inch vertical leap a 10-1 broad jump.
T. J garnered plenty of interest from the Bears, Browns, Denver, and worked out for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but had a private work-outs with the Kansas City Chiefs WR Coach Dedric Ward at Saddle Brook before the draft.
"Coach Ward is a real good coach and I'd love to play for him and the Chiefs."
