Pros - Tremendous football character and competitor. Earned Phillip Rivers Freshman of the Year award in 2017 and the Mike Hardy Award in 2018 which is given to the player who best exhibits a winning attitude. Thick, muscular frame and he embraces the physical components of the position. Brings the fight as a route runner, blocker, runner and at the catch point. Love his ball skills and how attacks the football like an alpha. Dominant in contested situations and he assertively gets himself in positions to win. Attacks the football win a “my-ball” mentality and he is never outworked for the football. Love his concentration and ability to win in the air. Routinely extends, plucks and secures the football outside his frame while making food adjustments. Makes good adjustments as a route runner on the fly to find space and sit in zones. Decisive and powerful as a runner post-catch and it takes an honest effort to get him on the ground. Can get yards after contact and his stiff arm is excellent. Flashes the ability to angle his releases and beat press coverage with active hand usage as well.
Cons - How dynamic, explosive and elusive is he? More of a route technician but he has a lot of room for growth in terms of generating separation. How does he produce with a new quarterback in 2018 as the No. 1 receiver with no Harmon or Meyers in the mix?
