Scouting Report: Strengths
- Shivers shows creativity and escapability in space, with good speed once he’s in the open field.
- He’s a quality receiver with soft hands, and Shivers shows a good feel for catching and transitioning upfield in the screen game.
- He shows good vision and good explosion upfield once he plants his foot. He has lateral movement skills and enough speed to threaten big plays. He’s excellent in the passing game, capable of flexing out as a receiver and creating mismatches against linebackers, and he’s a solid back in the screen game.
- He’s not for everyone, but he is an electrifying playmaker and has a chance to be an impact player in a limited role at the next level.
- He has very good vision and a knack for picking out cut-back lanes and then breaking offchunks of yardage.
- He is elite as a receiver. Shivers runs routes as well as most receivers and has natural hands, snatching the ball away from his body.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- Does not always show a burst in the box, anticipates contact. Can get I turned easily on draws and inside isolation plays, shuffling and failing to restart momentum. Power in his cuts has been inconsistent. Tripped upon first contact.
- He’ll be coming to the NFL from a wide-open spread offense in which Shivers ran a limited route tree.
- He’s elusive with the ball in his hands, but he won’t break a lot of tackles. Because getting separation is going to be an issue, he’s likely going to need to line up off the line of scrimmage.
