Strengths
  • Has the strong hands any NFL wide receiver coach and quarterback would covet. Tracks the deep ball over either shoulder and brings in passes fluidly without breaking stride downfield.
  • Does not possess top breakaway speed, though he's rarely caught from behind.
  • 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.
  • He is quicker than fast and lacks elite wheels to simply blow by defenders, but he has good football speed.
  • 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.
Weaknesses
  • Inconsistent high-pointing passes. Allows too many throws into his body when facing the quarterback.
  • Doesn't have the size to consistently win on the outside, but can be productive working the middle of the field and as a return man.
  • Does not own elite speed. Freezes at times when trying to juke defenders in space. Walls off his man as a blocker, allowing them to shed and make the play outside.
  • Does not always use his hands to secure deep throws, allowing the ball into his pads and chest.
  • Hands are good, not great. Will drop some easy balls and sometimes will body catch. Occasionally fails to high point.
