Strong Points

Big-play guy with speed. Outstanding kickoff returner. Plays to timed speed. Came on strong and had a great 2016. Plays bigger than he measures. Very good after the catch and can turn a short catch into a long gain. Good hands and adjusts to the ball well.

Weak Points

Not as tall as many clubs want at the WR position. Before 2016, his reception production was average. While he gets open versus lower level corners, he needs to improve his overall route running skills.

The Way We See It

A fourth-year junior entering the draft. Had a very strong 2016 with 82 receptions for 1,535 yards and 19 TDs. Really a one-year wonder in that he was more of a role player early in his career. Has adequate height with long arms. Very good athlete who can get out of cuts quickly to create separation. Can beat an opponent short or deep. Plays to timed speed. He is one of the better kickoff returners in the draft. Will come in as a No. 4 and ascend to a 2 or 3 while also being the primary kick returner. Interesting guy with upside.
