HT: 6’2

WT: 203 lbs

D.O.B.: N/A


PROS: Has illustrated rapid growth in his transition to the position after switching from quarterback just prior to the 2016 season. Executes his routes with good pace and timing as he works to his spots. Game slows down for him at the catch point as he routinely brings in receptions through contact and in traffic. Excellent body control and concentration along the sideline. Capable of extending to the football in any direction to adjust to off-target throws. Physical at the catch point and in his release. Competitive after the catch and decisive with the ball in his hands. Long strides quickly eat up turf although he isn’t a burner. Gives effort as a blocker. Willing to work the middle of the field and take a shot. Squeezes and secures the ball firmly with consistency. Shows the ability to win from the slot. 

CONS: Doesn’t have top end elusive traits, quickness or speed. Play speed is ordinary. Needs to develop nuance as a route runner to more consistently attack leverage and sell his breaks. Has run a fairly limited route tree. Works primarily from the slot which hasn’t yielded many reps to determine his ability to beat press coverage. Will occasionally mistime playing the ball. More growth is needed in terms of ball skills.
