Strengths
  • Does not have exceptional straight-line speed but takes advantage of open seams when his quarterback is on target.
  • Strong runner with the ball with enough agility to make defenders miss in the open field.
  • 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.
  • He is quicker than fast and lacks elite wheels to simply blow by defenders, but he has good football speed.
  • Has good body strength to squirm out of tackles with the coordination to maneuver his frame between defenders.
  • 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.
  • A versatile weapon, proving to be effective inside in the slot and outside on the perimeter. Makes plays at all levels of the field.
Weaknesses
  • Hands are good, not great. Will drop some easy balls and sometimes will body catch. Occasionally fails to high point.
  • Does not always use his hands to secure deep throws, allowing the ball into his pads and chest.
  • Comes off the snap high and upright, and doesn't get to top speed quickly. Not sudden or elusive.
