Scouting Report: Strengths
  • 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 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.
  • Does not have exceptional straight-line speed but takes advantage of open seams when his quarterback is on target.
  • 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.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • NFL defenders may be able to knock him off his route because of his slight frame.
  • 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.
