Strengths
  • 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.
  • Good quickness off the line. Has size and quickness to get off NFL press.
  • Very soft, natural hands to cleanly catch away from his frame. Concentration is excellent. Has the lateral agility and strength to get into and out of routes smoothly.
  • Has good body strength to squirm out of tackles with the coordination to maneuver his frame between defenders.
  • 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
  • Does not own elite speed. Freezes at times when trying to juke defenders in space. Walls off his man as a blocker, allowing them to shed and make the play outside.
  • 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.
  • 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
  • Inconsistent high-pointing passes. Allows too many throws into his body when facing the quarterback.
