Strong Points

Productive, excellent athlete with change of direction, flexibility and body control. Very explosive with great speed. Home run hitter. Very good after the catch. Tough and will compete in traffic. Very quick in and out of cuts to get separation. Can return kicks.

Weak Points

In games viewed, he only lined up on the right side. Plays in a simple spread offense with a limited route tree. Slight frame and small hands. Will have some drops. Not much of a blocker. Can be re-routed by physical corners. Has had some off field issues that need to be addressed.

The Way We See It

A similar style player to Will Fuller last year. He's a former Junior College transfer who came on in 2016. Tall and very thin with small hands but very fast and athletic. Instant home run threat in the college game. Get him in the open field and he's gone. Like Fuller, he will struggle versus physical man coverage at the NFL level and will have some drops that you have to live with. Coming from the Oklahoma offense, he will need to develop his route running skills. A specialist early on who can be a good complementary receiver after he develops his game. Can return kicks.
