Strong Points

Great play speed, instant deep threat. Very good athlete with very good body control, can break down and get in and out of cuts quickly. Shows he can make the acrobatic catch. Dangerous after the catch with his speed. Has returned kicks (not in 2016).

Weak Points

Lacks ideal size and won't get much bigger with his smallish frame. Has some drops and will body catch some balls. Limited route tree, raw as a route runner and will need work in this area. Doesn't do much as a blocker.

The Way We See It

Third-year junior and 2½-year starter who is entering the draft. Had a big season for Baylor with 87 receptions for 1,215 yards and 13 touchdowns. A consistent big-play threat with his speed, but coming from the Baylor offense, he is raw as far as route running. Will need work on sight adjustments and overall route running. I see him as more of a role player in 2017 with a chance to become a No. 2 or 3 receiver once he develops. Might be more useful in the slot with his size. Has returned kicks in the past and may have a future as a returner in the NFL.
