Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Has a knack for getting open and is a quarterback's best friend - passers just need to toss the ball in his area and he'll come down with it.
  • Often used on deep routes, getting separation down the sideline or over the middle on crossing routes by extending his arms rather than pure speed.
  • Has good body strength to squirm out of tackles with the coordination to maneuver his frame between defenders.
  • He catches the ball with his large, soft hands and is tough. Deceptive jets and a smooth route runner.
  • Balanced, savvy route runner with top field awareness, setting up and selling routes beautifully.
  • Strong runner with the ball with enough agility to make defenders miss in the open field.
  • Good quickness off the line. Has size and quickness to get off NFL press.
  • Generally reliable receiver capable of making difficult catches in traffic over the middle or one on one down the sideline.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Comes off the snap high and upright, and doesn't get to top speed quickly. Not sudden or elusive.
  • Does not always use his hands to secure deep throws, allowing the ball into his pads and chest.
