Strengths
  • He is quicker than fast and lacks elite wheels to simply blow by defenders, but he has good football speed.
  • Does not have exceptional straight-line speed but takes advantage of open seams when his quarterback is on target.
  • Balanced, savvy route runner with top field awareness, setting up and selling routes beautifully.
  • 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
  • Hands are good, not great. Will drop some easy balls and sometimes will body catch. Occasionally fails to high point.
  • Will have limitations against physical cornerbacks because of his thin frame. If locked up at the line, he lacks the upper-body strength to fight off the press with his hands.
  • Does not always use his hands to secure deep throws, allowing the ball into his pads and chest.
  • Needs to refine his routes and become a better all-around receiver. Has some ball security concerns. Durability concerns because of his size.
  • Lacks ideal size and strength and is a ¬∑mallish target with a lean, frail-looking frame. Can be overmatched at the line of scrimmage when physical !le/enders get their hands on him. Struggles in press coverage and was knocked on his back more than a few times.
