All-Star Games: Was invited to the College Gridiron Showcase, but opted to go to the Senior Bowl.
Positives: Has adequate height and bulk for the position. Runs with adequate speed. His best attribute is his quickness, though. He’s dangerous after the catch and on punt returns, and changes directions very well. Also shows above-average vision on kick returns and offers very good ability for yards after the catch as wide receiver. Good stop-and-start ability. Quick off of the line, with above-average acceleration to get past press coverage. Has very good body control and ball skills and can adjust position and catch consistently while falling. Is also nimble enough to consistently get both feet down on the sidelines. Generally has good hands and hand-eye coordination, and can snag fast passes. Has quick hands to come down with passes without tipping off the cornerback, and can come down with passes right out of his breaks. Has the body control to adjust well to off-target passes. Shows good concentration when a hit is coming. Is an above-average route runner with adequate quickness into and out of his breaks. Nimble enough to get both feet down on sidelines. Tracks passes well over his inside shoulder. Good lower-body strength, and is hard to bring down in the open field even if a defender can get a hand on him. Very good effort after contact, and can maintain his balance when defenders are trying to knock him down. Protects the ball well after the catch. Makes smart kick-return decisions.
Negatives: Though his hands are usually very good, there are lapses where he will let a ball get to his body. Also, though he tracks passes well over his inside shoulder, he’s not as reliable tracking over his outside shoulder. Runs a little bit out of balance after his breaks. Needs to more consistently attack the ball in the air instead of waiting for it to come to him.
Projection: Round 5. He’s flying a little under the radar. I think he has the skills to be at least a 3rd rounder, but he’s downgraded some due to the talent in this draft. Has the skills to be a very good WR2 or low-end WR1.
