    PROS: Insanely fast wide receiver who is a blur in the open field. Has the ability to blow by any cornerback vertically, simply because of his top-end speed. A legit 4.2 runner. Elite hand strength at the catch point. Makes contested catch situations in traffic look way too easy. Used often as a red-zone threat because of his leaping ability, natural hands, and aggressive mindset on jump balls. Possesses rare body flexibility in the air – has a great feel to contort and twist his body to stay in bounds or make something out of nothing at the catch point. An explosive and fluid ball carrier after the catch. Slippery and difficult to bring down in the open field.

    CONS: Nuanced route running is the primary concern. Wins primarily on his physical traits like speed, explosiveness, and leaping ability. Doesn’t have much experience fighting against press coverage or running a diverse route tree. Release package is fairly limited. Doesn’t yet have the finesse to consistently create separation at the LOS– while also not being strong enough to handle the length or physicality of top press corners.
