Scouting Report: Strengths
  • 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.
  • Does a nice job locating and tracking deep passes and is a legitimate vertical threat. Willing to go up and attack the ball.
  • Good quickness off the line. Has size and quickness to get off NFL press.
  • Has smooth acceleration and deceiving speed. Balanced and very fast with the ball in his hands.
  • Has good body strength to squirm out of tackles with the coordination to maneuver his frame between defenders.
  • Strong runner with the ball with enough agility to make defenders miss in the open field.
  • Shows quickness off the snap to shake off corners and create room. Separates with hesitation moves and nice acceleration.
  • Fluid athlete with explosive burst and speed to stretch the field and breeze past defenders. Has a quick first step and gets to top speed in a hurry.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Has only average height and overall length. Lacks initial burst off the line of scrimmage and has more build-up speed than track wheels. Limited explosiveness and flexibility and will struggle to separate against pro defensive backs
  • Does not always use his hands to secure deep throws, allowing the ball into his pads and chest.
