Frank Ladson Jr. WR Clemson Draft Profile

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.
  • Generally reliable receiver capable of making difficult catches in traffic over the middle or one on one down the sideline.
  • Good effort and technique as a blocker for his size. Can beat the press with elusiveness or physical contact. Runs crisp routes with sharp cuts.
  • Does not have exceptional straight-line speed but takes advantage of open seams when his quarterback is on target.
  • A savvy, natural pass-catcher with reliable hands and very good focus. Snatches the ball out of the air and shows the concentration to make acrobatic catches look easy.
  • Has good body strength to squirm out of tackles with the coordination to maneuver his frame between defenders.
  • 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 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.
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.
