Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Balanced, savvy route runner with top field awareness, setting up and selling routes beautifully.
  • 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.
  • Generally reliable receiver capable of making difficult catches in traffic over the middle or one on one down the sideline.
  • A versatile weapon, proving to be effective inside in the slot and outside on the perimeter. Makes plays at all levels of the field.
  • Has enough upper-body strength and tenacity to be very effective as a downfield blocker. Is not shy about taking on his man, provides some pop and will open a running lane for his back at the next level.
  • Good quickness off the line. Has size and quickness to get off NFL press.
  • A long-striding athlete with good playing speed. Usually sure-handed with the concentration to snatch the ball out of the air.
  • Does a nice job locating and tracking deep passes and is a legitimate vertical threat. Willing to go up and attack the ball.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Comes off the snap high and upright, and doesn't get to top speed quickly. Not sudden or elusive.
  • A straight-line athlete with only average speed, lacking the wheels to run away from anyone at the next level. Struggles separating in tight coverage.
