    PROS: Everything he does is smooth, fluid and natural. Does well to extend his arms and adjust to the football in any direction. Ball skills are clean working over the shoulder and tracks the ball with ease. Game slows down for him at the catch point, demonstrating outstanding body control and concentration to haul in highlight reel grabs. Hands are soft and natural. Never fights the ball and catching it comes easy. Secures the football cleanly away from his frame with consistency. Rapid accelerator with good burst. Has the speed needed to get behind coverage. Impressive stop-start ability. Shifty and elusive as a route runner and when working after the catch. Showcases good physicality and balance post-catch. Sees the field cleanly as a ball carrier and times his cuts well. Runs routes with good pace and timing. Knows how to establish his frame at the catch point. Works all levels and areas of the field effectively. Adept at creating separation against moan coverage but also knows how to find space in zones.

    CONS: Looks to have shorter arms and a limited catch radius. Not much of a threat to win above the rim. Relies on speed and quickness to separate and must develop more nuance in his routes. Route breaks can be more deliberate and crisp to take advantage of his quickness in and out of breaks. Would benefit from becoming a more consistent route salesman. Needs to prove his ability to beat press coverage with consistency. Runs a limited route tree in college.
