Bio: 
Two-year starter named First Team All-SEC in 2016 after catching 54 passes and leading the team with 864 receiving yards and eight touchdowns despite missing two games with a leg injury. Made 63 receptions for 700 yards and four touchdowns as a sophomore in 2015. Started twice in 2014 and had 12 catches for 149 yards.
Pos: 
Average-sized receiver with return ability. Resilient, finds ways to get open and comes back to the ball to make himself an available target. Fights defenders to come away with the contested pass, looks the ball into his hands and effectively uses his frame to shield opponents. Follows blocks in the open field, displays a degree of quickness in his game and shows a burst of speed. Solid downfield blocker who seals open the running lanes.
Neg: 
Does some unnecessary body-catching on occasion. Average run-after-catch skill. One-speed skill player lacking a burst and second gear.
Analysis: 
Stewart was productive in his role for the Crimson Tide and could find a home as a fifth receiver this summer if he plays well on special teams.
