PROS: He displays very good proactive athleticism for the position. For a bigger WR he has some suddenness off the LOS and displays good speed and deep tracking ability on 9 routes. Does a very good job defeating press with foot quickness. Will give up his body to pursue the football. Does a good job of dropping his weight and creating separation at the top of the route. Very good in contested catch situations due to his good length and competitiveness and will high point the football. Has excellent RAC ability. Natural hands catcher that displays good extension on his catches. Good courage and willingness to catch the ball when contact is imminent. Displays good catch range and length for the position. Excellent body control to contort his body and adjust on back shoulder throws to secure the catch. Projects with excellent red-zone ability and in slant/fade situations on the goal line. He’s an ideal fit at X but his skill set suggests he can play anywhere on the field.
CONS: Needs to become more consistent at using his hands to defeat press at the LOS. For a bigger WR I’d like to see him more dominant as a stalk blocker. Although he hasn’t run a full route tree in the exposures I’ve evaluated, nothing in his skill set suggests that he cant. Needs to become more consistent at staying focused on the routine catches in the short to intermediate area.
