A tiny receiver (just 5'9") Tutu joins a large and talented crop of WR prospects in this year's draft. After a breakout year in 2019 he had a less productive one in 2020 as he dealt with a few injuries and teams were more aware of what he is capable of doing. In 2019 he led the ACC with over 1,200 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns.

A shifty player slot with blazing speed (reported 4.28 in the past), Louisville coaches liked to either hit Tutu with a quick-hitter and let him make a play or send him deep on nine-routes. Very few players have the kind of speed Tutu does in fact he made it onto our fastest players in the NFL draft list at position # 2.

The main knock on Atwell is an obvious one: he is built for speed no doubt, but he certainly isn't built to take a pounding in the NFL - as he is comically thin and we worry whether he can develop into anything other than a deep threat. It would be dangerous to send him over the middle as it's unlikely he would survive for long.

Atwell could also could stand to improve in a number of key areas, including route running and his hands.

We expect him to be picked early in the second round.
