    PROS: Excellent linear runner with elite acceleration as well as top speed. Weaver with an inherent knack for feeling space in the second and third level; understands his and others' athletic ability very well to win corners/make players miss. Contact melts off of his frame, in large part due to his feel for space and his smoke-like burst. Many, many tackle attempts end up arm tackles/dives. Elusive via feel and explosiveness, not through elite agility. Notably successful on stretch concepts, on which his reads and timing are almost perfect. Highly industrious footwork with clearly practiced toe drags/skips/jump cuts to present an even more difficult target in space for would-be tacklers. Willing pass protector who can lower his pads into contact.

    CONS: Vision and instincts aren't particularly strong--doesn't anticipate or set up second level defenders as well as you'd like. Isn't overwhelmingly agile--lateral quickness more a result of industrious movement than athletic ability. A slugger, but not a consistent hitter: most runs that make it to the second or third level were untouched and perfectly blocked. Will lock in on one defensive key, typically a first level defender, and miss clear cutback lanes/bounce paths. A tad upright when running and not overwhelmingly powerful. Hands and pass protection both need work, which may limit his deployment in NFL.
