Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Good burst off the snap, quick hands and good balance to gain a clean release.
  • Quick feet and good balance to create separation on stick and post routes.
  • Has extremely good, soft, natural hands. Consistently makes the clean catch.
  • Soft, reliable hands center the big target for quarterbacks. Shields the defense and will let the ball into his pads to protect it when about to absorb a big hit over the middle.
  • Soft hands and good concentration level with obvious toughness in congested areas.
  • A powerful open-field runner with agility, quickness, and a decent stiff-arm.
  • A coordinated athlete and tough player to tackle, running with low pad level. Has good body thickness and strength.
  • Gets a quick release off the line. Dips his shoulder and shows some savvy 8 as a route runner to avoid contact with defenders g to get into his route.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Lacks the bulk strength to lock on and control NFL defensive linemen. Lower-body strength is questionable and limits his in-line blocking.
  • Is a bit high-hipped and slow to get rolling. Frame limits upside as a blocker.
