Scouting Report: Strengths
- Shows quickness off the snap to shake off corners and create room. Separates with hesitation moves and nice acceleration.
- Made Bruce Feldman's Freak's List - ranked #67. He wrote, "Tucker clocked a 4.29 40, broad-jumped 10-10 and vertical-jumped 36 1/2 inches. He’s also very powerful for his size, squatting 600 pounds and doing 16 reps of 225 on the bench."
- Flashes the foot quickness and toughness to handle slot duties at the next level and lines up all over the field. Dangerous with the ball in his hands.
- He’s also a catch-and-run threat, a creative runner who has good vision in the open field; he’ll be an option to return kicks as well.
- Tucker accelerates 0-to-60 and hits top speed fast enough to outrun angles. He’s also flexible and agile, able to keep the pedal to the floor as Tucker turns and weaves.
- Fluid athlete with explosive burst and speed to stretch the field and breeze past defenders. Has a quick first step and gets to top speed in a hurry.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- He’s short and slight, a non-option as a boundary receiver and a non-factor blocking in the run game.
- Physically, Tucker profiles as a guy who should have success facing the quarterback, but he struggles to gear down and make the necessary sharp cuts to create separation underneath.
- Because of that small frame, he won’t be for everyone; many teams still want their No. 1 receiver to be 6'2" or taller.
- NFL defenders may be able to knock him off his route because of his slight frame.
