Strengths
  • Has the size, length, and strength to defeat press jams. Can make the spectacular catch. A decent open-field runner with some agility and the ability to break tackles.
  • Has top focus and does a nice job catching the ball in stride. Decisive runner who doesn't go down easily despite his size.
  • 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.
  • Often used on deep routes, getting separation down the sideline or over the middle on crossing routes by extending his arms rather than pure speed.
  • A versatile weapon, proving to be effective inside in the slot and outside on the perimeter. Makes plays at all levels of the field.
  • Generally reliable receiver capable of making difficult catches in traffic over the middle or one on one down the sideline.
  • A long-striding athlete with good playing speed. Usually sure-handed with the concentration to snatch the ball out of the air.
  • Strong runner with the ball with enough agility to make defenders miss in the open field.
Weaknesses
  • Comes off the snap high and upright, and doesn't get to top speed quickly. Not sudden or elusive.
  • Does not always use his hands to secure deep throws, allowing the ball into his pads and chest.
