Strong Points

Tall with length. Good athlete with long speed. Shows he can be a deep threat. Has a large receiving radius with good hands. Has the flexibility to get low throws and still keep stride. Willing blocker. Tough and not afraid to go in traffic.

Weak Points

Durability; has missed time in each of the past three seasons because of injury, including four games in 2016 because of a knee injury. Has a very lean frame and lacks both weight room and functional strength. Physical corners can re-route him. Long-strider who has to gather a bit to make sharp cuts on the shorter routes.

The Way We See It

Originally signed with Alabama–Birmingham but transferred to Louisville after UAB dropped football. He is tall, long and athletic with deep speed. Better long-range receiver than short because he cannot consistently get separation on the shorter routes with his long stride. He is tough and competes. Has good hands and a very large receiving radius. Has to get stronger and add some bulk to compete against NFL corners. Still developing but has upside.
