Bio: 
Graduate transfer from Maryland who started 12 games in his lone season at Syracuse. Earned Third Team All-American honors after setting single-season school records with 94 receptions and 1,482 receiving yards, with his yardage total ranking second in ACC history. Tied the Orange school record with 14 receiving touchdowns. Started seven games with 31 catches for 500 yards and two scores as a redshirt freshman at Maryland. Made 30 receptions for 438 yards the following two seasons.
Pos: 
Maryland transfer coming off a career campaign. Long, uses his size as an advantage and plays with balance as well as body control. Uses his frame to shield opponents and protect the pass, consistently makes the reception away from his frame and easily adjusts to the errant throw. Extends or exposes himself to the big hit in order to come away with the reception, stays focused and easily makes the catch in stride. Displays a burst during the initial five yards, sells routes and uses the sidelines well.
Neg: 
More of a one-speed receiver and lacks the second gear. Must do a better job using his hands to separate from defenders. Average quickness.
Analysis: 
Etta-Tawo jumped off the tape last season and went from a non-factor in the scouting community to a solid middle-round choice. He has speed and quickness limitations but would excel at the next level as a fourth receiver.
