Damon Hazelton WR Missouri Draft Profile

Houston Texans Signed as an undrafted free agent by Houston Texans
Strengths
  • Physical player able to get off press coverage to release up the sideline or position himself inside the cornerback on slants and crossing routes.
  • Balanced, savvy route runner with top field awareness, setting up and selling routes beautifully.
  • Has enough upper-body strength and tenacity to be very effective as a downfield blocker. Is not shy about taking on his man, provides some pop and will open a running lane for his back at the next level.
  • 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.
  • 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
  • Not explosive coming out of his breaks.
  • 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.
  • A straight-line athlete with only average speed, lacking the wheels to run away from anyone at the next level. Struggles separating in tight coverage.
  • Inconsistent high-pointing passes. Allows too many throws into his body when facing the quarterback.
  • Does not always use his hands to secure deep throws, allowing the ball into his pads and chest.
