Pos: Nice sized possession wide out and solid red zone\third down target. Extends or gets vertical to grab the throw from the air, displaying good eye\hand coordination. Effectively uses the sidelines looking the pass into his hands. Adjusts to the errant throw and quick transitioning from making the reception to running after the catch. Tough and always working to make positive plays.
Neg: Lacks quickness into routes. Not a wide out who can run to daylight. Gets marginal results as a blocker.
Analysis: A prospect becoming the "go-to guy" in Michigan's offense, Avant has terrific upside for the next level. Nicely fits into the middle portion of the draft's first day. A productive second wide out at the next level.
