Monk had a great freshman season in 2004, catching 37 passes for 569 yards and six touchdowns. He didnít blow up as expected as a sophomore, but still had a solid year finishing with 35 receptions for 476 yards and seven touchdowns. Monk had career highs as a junior with 50 receptions for 962 yards and 11 touchdowns on the year. A knee injury pretty much killed his senior season, as he was only able to catch 12 passes for 116 yards and three touchdowns.
Monk has tremendous size for a receiver. He can overpower corners and is nearly untstoppable in one on one situations. He is also a great athlete, that has excellent body control when going up for the football. That combination of height, strength, and athleticism should make him a big time red zone threat in the NFL. Monk uses his size to his advantage even when crossing the middle, and has shown the ability to hold on to the football after being hit.
Speed is the major concern with his game. He may lack the speed to get separation in the NFL. He has everything else, but you still need to be able to get open in the secondary to be able to catch the football.
Monk has a lot of upside because of his natural talent. He will need time to develop his receiving skills, as he is more athlete than receiver at this point, but that shows how much potential he has. He should be able to help out in the red zone immediately, but patience may be needed for him to reach his full potential.
