Louisville wide receiver Tutu Atwell led the ACC in receiving and touchdowns as a sophomore in 2019, just two seasons removed from playing quarterback in high school. He brings elite speed to the table and was often just too much for college secondaries to contain. With a skill set predicated on speed and finesse, Atwell’s ability to get loose in the secondary and break pursuit angles is his appeal at the next level. With that said, his overall skill is very incomplete. He has a diminutive frame, is underdeveloped as a route-runner, has inconsistent hands, and struggles when any sort of contact is introduced. While he has notable limitations, his dynamic speed to get vertical and add a creative layer to the offense is valuable. Atwell is likely a gadgety type player in the NFL, but his competitive spirit and burst can help stress defenses with spacing.
