The Way We See It

A fourth-year junior entering the draft. Redshirted as a freshman and was a backup in 2014. Played a huge role in the WR rotation the past two seasons. Stewart is a very good athlete with great speed but raw as far as route running. Can be dangerous once he gets the ball in his hands and is used on reverses and kickoff returns. His blocking skills should also be a big plus for him. But Stewart is a developmental prospect in spite of his 27 starts at ‘Bama because of the way he was used in their system, and he is going to need time to develop. He will most likely be a role player early in his career.
