Positives … Has adequate height, but shows good overall muscle tone, good bubble and thighs and trim waist … Shows quick acceleration and thrust off the line of scrimmage and is learning how to use that speed to burst into his routes … Uses his head and shoulder fakes, along with a high release to make quick cuts in attempts to avoid the jam … A good threat on underneath routes, as he is effective at finding the seam … His speed and body control allow him to run by defenders on long routes … Can run, jump and adjust to the ball in flight … Shows good acceleration after the catch and enough elusiveness to avoid arm tackles … Efficient utilizing his second gear on vertical routes … shows good urgency getting to the ball in traffic … Has the strength to break tackles and is not easy to knock down … Willing blocker who shows some snap in his hips.

Negatives … Needs route refinement, as he rounds his cuts and takes a soft angle approach to the ball … Not a polished receiver, as he will extend for the ball, but is prone to double catches … Appears aware of coverage, but does a marginal job of uncovering and settling into the soft spot of the zone … Does not sell his route and fails to set up the defenders … Needs to secure the ball better before turning up field, as most of his bobbles have resulted in him fighting for the ball (six of his nine fumbles led to opposition scores) … Does not have the ideal size to be effective as a vertical receiver.
