Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Height helps him snare high throws but he also adjusts to low ones. Plays hard and with awareness, knows where the marker is. Runs with toughness and sheds tacklers in secondary.
  • A coordinated athlete and tough player to tackle, running with low pad level. Has good body thickness and strength.
  • Soft hands. Flashes good to very good tracking and overall body control to make catches outside of his frame.
  • Good vision to set up blocks and while he isn't quick enough to elude in tight quarters, and take advantage of a defender leaning to spring for additional yardage.
  • Has extremely good, soft, natural hands. Consistently makes the clean catch.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Doesn't break many tackles or do enough after contact.
  • Lacks the bulk strength to lock on and control NFL defensive linemen. Lower-body strength is questionable and limits his in-line blocking.
