Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Flashes the foot quickness and toughness to handle slot duties at the next level and lines up all over the field. Dangerous with the ball in his hands.
  • 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 elite balance tight-roping the sideline and in-and-out of his breaks, showing excellent start-stop ability and burst.
  • Does not have exceptional straight-line speed but takes advantage of open seams when his quarterback is on target.
  • Does not possess top breakaway speed, though he's rarely caught from behind.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Walley isn’t going to make contested catches.
  • His ability to track the ball is good enough, but Walley too often let the ball get into his body downfield rather than snatching it with his hands.
  • He also had problems with drops when coming back to the action. He has some issues against press coverage, sometimes spending too much time hand fighting at the line of scrimmage.
  • Walley also lacks suddenness as a route runner, and that is a potential issue at the next level.
