Strengths
  • Balanced, savvy route runner with top field awareness, setting up and selling routes beautifully.
  • He is quicker than fast and lacks elite wheels to simply blow by defenders, but he has good football speed.
  • 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.
  • Has the strong hands any NFL wide receiver coach and quarterback would covet. Tracks the deep ball over either shoulder and brings in passes fluidly without breaking stride downfield.
Weaknesses
  • Doesn't look like much physically with a smallish frame and little room to get much bigger
  • Doesn't have the size to consistently win on the outside, but can be productive working the middle of the field and as a return man.
  • Needs to refine his routes and become a better all-around receiver. Has some ball security concerns. Durability concerns because of his size.
  • Hands are good, not great. Will drop some easy balls and sometimes will body catch. Occasionally fails to high point.
  • Will have limitations against physical cornerbacks because of his thin frame. If locked up at the line, he lacks the upper-body strength to fight off the press with his hands.
