Strong Points

Very productive. Sure-handed guy who will compete for the ball in traffic. Tough. Very good punt returner. Good route runner who is very quick coming out of cuts to get separation. Good run-after-catch ability

Weak Points

Size; will be the smallest guy on the field. While willing as a blocker, he is not that effective. More quick than fast; he won't have great timed speed.

The Way We See It

He might be the smallest guy on the field but also one of the most productive. Work ethic and desire are definitely not an issue here. A very quick player who won't time well, but because he is so quick, he is effective. He is also a very good punt returner and can be a club's top return guy. Problem with players of his stature, though, is it is unlikely he can help on coverage units. The team that drafts him has to have a role for him. He can only play in the slot but he can be effective there, and at times will even benefit there from his ability to get lost in traffic. Size and timed speed will get him drafted low but he will play in the league.
