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┬ľBirmingham 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.
