Scouting Report: Strengths
  • 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.
  • Does a nice job locating and tracking deep passes and is a legitimate vertical threat. Willing to go up and attack the ball.
  • Does not possess top breakaway speed, though he's rarely caught from behind.
  • A long-striding athlete with good playing speed. Usually sure-handed with the concentration to snatch the ball out of the air.
  • Has enough upper-body strength and tenacity to be very effective as a downfield blocker. Is not shy about taking on his man, provides some pop and will open a running lane for his back at the next level.
  • Has good body strength to squirm out of tackles with the coordination to maneuver his frame between defenders.
  • Solidly built with good overall size and bulk - has long arms and does a nice job extending to create a large catching radius.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Does not always use his hands to secure deep throws, allowing the ball into his pads and chest.
  • A straight-line athlete with only average speed, lacking the wheels to run away from anyone at the next level. Struggles separating in tight coverage.
