Scouting Report: Strengths
  • He’s also a catch-and-run threat, a creative runner who has good vision in the open field; he’ll be an option to return kicks as well.
  • Tinsley plays with a smoothness and balance, and Tinsley shows a knack for setting up defensive backs.
  • 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.
  • He’s equally dangerous in catch-and-run situations as he is taking the top off a defense
  • He’s a fluid athlete with excellent short-area quickness; he should be able to create separation, and he has the straight-line speed to threaten down the seam.
  • Does not possess top breakaway speed, though he's rarely caught from behind.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Tinsley fights hard for the ball, but Tinsley too often fights to catch it; there are too many double catches on his highlight reel. It shows up in contested-catch situations in the red zone.
  • He also had problems with drops when coming back to the action. He has some issues against press coverage, sometimes spending too much time hand fighting at the line of scrimmage.
  • His playing speed is less than elite. Tinsley won’t run past defenders like he did at the college level.
