Gonzalez did not play much as a redshirt freshman in 2004, but show some potential a year later when he had 28 catches, 373 yards, and three touchdowns on the year. He moved into the starting line up this year opposite Ted Ginn and had a very solid year. He hauled in 51 balls for 734 yards, and eight touchdowns.
Gonzalez is the type of receiver you can always depend on. He is tough, and willing to do anything to help his team, and make a play. He can do a little bit of everything. He has excellent hands and is not afraid to go over the middle and take a hit. He has the speed to get down field, and has excellent body control.
Although he can do a little of everything, he does not have any one true stand out ability. He only has average size and decent speed on the field. He lacks the explosiveness to be a major playmaker and the size to be a go to intermediate receiver.
Gonzalez may not have the talent to be a go to target, but his combination of skills, intelligence, and toughness will allow him to make an impact in the league. He is a player you can count on and who will always go full tilt. Gonzalez has had a nice showing at the combine and at his pro day, and may have pushed himself into the second round.
