Scouting Report: Strengths
  • He’s equally dangerous in catch-and-run situations as Wells is taking the top off a defense
  • Wells runs precise routes, showing an innate feel for setting up defensive backs to create separation.
  • He tracks the ball well downfield and consistently runs under long throws.
  • He’s a precise route runner, creating separation when used on quick outs and stop patterns in college. Wells has good stop-start ability and lateral agility.
  • Has good body strength to squirm out of tackles with the coordination to maneuver his frame between defenders.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Wells doesn’t have the ability as a run blocker or the violent run-after-catch ability.
  • Wells seems comfortable in traffic to the point where Wells doesn’t make the effort to create separation.
  • He’ll be coming to the NFL from a wide-open spread offense in which he ran a limited route tree.
  • Physically, he profiles as a guy who should have success facing the quarterback, but he struggles to gear down and make the necessary sharp cuts to create separation underneath.
