Run After Catch Ability

Stanley Berryhill III

: He is surprisingly good running after the catch. For a bigger receiver, he is elusive and can get positive yardage. Because he’s also a bigger-bodied guy, he is difficult for smaller defenders to tackle.

Prospect Summary

Stanley Berryhill III is a good athlete with regards to agility and lateral quickness. In the run game, he won’t be overpowering as a stalk blocker and this will not be a strength of his game. The passing game is where he thrives. He has sufficient foot quickness to get off press. He does a good job of dropping his weight and coming out of his break at the top of the route. He has sufficient long speed but will likely do his best work in the short-to-intermediate areas and from the slot. He is a sufficient route-runner who could have better posture and learn to attack leverage against man coverage. He is a hands-catcher but will allow the ball into his body at times. In the NFL, he is a rotational WR by year two who could also contribute on special teams. On third downs, he is best served in the slot or off the ball, which would allow him to use his good agility and movement skills as a weapon.

Ideal Role: Developmental WR

Scheme Fit: Vertical passing offense

FILM EVALUATION

Written by Drae Harris

Games watched: BYU (2021), ASU (2021), SDSU (2021), Washington (2021)

Best Game Studied: BYU (2021)

Worst Game Studied: Washington (2021)

Route Running: He uses some creativity and nuance when running routes. While he won’t have elite separation quickness at the top of the route because he is a high-cut player, he is creative enough to get separation on intermediate routes. He also uses his body to out-physical smaller defenders and create separation.

Hands: He has strong hands to secure the football in contested-catch situations. He also does an excellent job contorting his body to catch off-target throws. He also displays a good ability to track the deep ball and secure the catch.

Separation: On the surface, you may not think he is a good separator due to his big frame. However, bigger receivers should be judged on a different platform than smaller ones. He can separate at the top of the route and has good speed to win vertically as well.

Release: He has improved his release in 2021. He has shown the ability to beat press with upper-body strength. He also has the foot quickness to get vertical and stack a defender.

Run After Catch: See Above.

Ball Skills: He has outstanding ball skills. He has an uncanny ability to track the deep ball. He also has an outstanding catch radius and jumping ability, so he can clean up even off-target throws and make the QB look good. 

Football IQ: His football IQ is good. He knows how to adjust his route to get to the sticks in situational football. When he is underneath, he is cognizant of coverage and knows how to “sit his route down.”

Versatility: He brings some versatility to the position. He has aligned both outside and in the slot. While he has improved his releases off the line in 2021, his skill set also suggests that he would work well off the ball.

Competitive Toughness: London plays with competitive toughness. He catches 6 routes when contact is imminent. He will run block and is tough to get down when he has the ball in his hands.

Big Play Ability: He is a big-play threat whenever his number is called. He has the speed to beat you vertically and he will likely win the contested catch. He’s a surprisingly dangerous runner with the ball in his hands, as well.
