Strengths
  • Combines speed, balance, quickness, vision and crisp cuts to leave defensive backs and linebackers in the dust.
  • 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 savvy, natural pass-catcher with reliable hands and very good focus. Snatches the ball out of the air and shows the concentration to make acrobatic catches look easy.
  • Shows quickness off the snap to shake off corners and create room. Separates with hesitation moves and nice acceleration.
  • Has smooth acceleration and deceiving speed. Balanced and very fast with the ball in his hands.
  • An impressive athlete with very quick acceleration to reach his top speed quickly and stretch the field. Very good body control and smooth movements. Plays fast and explosive.
  • 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 gets off the line with a nice burst and is very fluid in his movements with little wasted steps in his routes.
Weaknesses
  • NFL defenders may be able to knock him off his route because of his slight frame.
  • Lacks ideal size and strength and is a ¬∑mallish target with a lean, frail-looking frame. Can be overmatched at the line of scrimmage when physical !le/enders get their hands on him. Struggles in press coverage and was knocked on his back more than a few times.
