PROS: Winston, just like his starting quarterback Anthony Gordon, started his college career at City College of San Francisco, a JUCO school. Since coming to Washington State in 2017, he has been a key contributor. So far in 2019 he's been the Cougars' go-to guy all over the field.
Winston does his best work in space. He understands angles and cuts to create good separation between defenders. He's also a yards after catch machine. Getting the ball in Winston's hands via screens or slants is something the Cougars do often, and Winston tends to reward them handsomely for it. When winning down the field, Winston doesn't dominate his defenders via strength or speed, but his quickness and his nuanced route running always seems to get him the space to make catches. He has a little Antonio Brown in him, in that regard.
CONS: Winston is a smaller receiver at 5-foot-11, 180 pounds, and that will always limit is draft outlook. The defenders Wazzu goes up against in the early part of their season aren't great. To his credit, Winston has been dominating those matchups. But we need to see him against guys who are more NFL caliber to see how much he can really stand out. Right now we see the traits, but will they stay as effective when competition gets better? We shall see.
