Strengths
  • 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.
  • Plays fast and confident. Covers a lot of ground in the short half of the field and is slippery after the catch.
  • 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.
  • Keeps his feet active and eyes up to dodge traffic quickly and easily. Has excellent straight-line speed to be a breakaway threat at any level. Will initiate contact and runs through high tackle attempts but isn't overall a powerful player.
  • Balanced, savvy route runner with top field awareness, setting up and selling routes beautifully.
  • Has elite speed and cutting ability and good hands and toughness. Lacks the ideal size, but has a similar body type to Antonio Brown.
  • A slippery runner with elusive footwork. Has little to no wasted movements between the reception and burst upfield.
  • Very good hands, accepts the ball fluidly on most throws and is ready to make a play afterward. Makes catches in traffic, even going up over taller defenders with vertical and toughness.
Weaknesses
  • 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.
  • Does not always use his hands to secure deep throws, allowing the ball into his pads and chest.
