Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Although Wells is more of a possession target than a field stretcher, he fiercely competitive demeanor and run-after-catch ability make him a major threat in the middle of the field.
  • Strong runner with the ball with enough agility to make defenders miss in the open field.
  • Thriving on physicality, he’s a contested-catch specialist with a knack for warding off defenders while the ball is in the air. Wells has strong hands and the ability to wrestle the ball away from defenders.
  • He tracks the ball well downfield and consistently runs under long throws.
  • He is a natural playmaker, at his best with the ball in his hands.
  • He’s coordinated with soft, reliable hands, and he shows the ability to adjust to balls thrown behind him, as well as a knack for digging out low throws.
  • He accelerates quickly and possesses good straight-line speed. Wells shows solid ball-tracking skills and body control downfield, able to adjust to the off-target throw.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • His playing speed is less than elite. Wells won’t run past defenders like Wells did at the college level.
  • While he has the athleticism to be a catch-and-run threat, he never seemed comfortable catching, gathering, and transitioning to a runner.
  • Wells lacks the twitch to create consistent separation, and despite his size and ability to track the ball downfield, he isn’t great on contested catches.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
