Possesses good short-area quickness and displays the ability to quickly redirect underneath and uncover from defenders. Is a smooth route runner vertically and does a nice job giving a little head fake in order to sell his routes. However, he doesn't showcase the same type of sharpness and/or burst when he's asked to snap off routes at 90 degrees.
Has a tendency to chop his feet before the break and doesn't consistently separate. Tracks the football well down the field and exhibits the concentration to consistently adjust to the play. Showcases natural ball skills and does a nice job extending his arms and consistently plucking the football away from his frame.
Struggles maintaining his balance off the line and fighting through press coverage. Lacks great speed, and although he displays good short-area quickness, he isn't a threat to run by defenders down the field.
Impression: Showcases good ball skills and is savvy in the pass game, but lacks the burst and physicality to play on the outside at the next level. Looks like a guy who could make a roster and work his way into some sub packages, but only from the slot."
Strengths: Tremendous hands. Routinely makes the difficult catch and never drops the easy ones. Very tough; will go over the middle and make the catch in traffic. Takes some big shots but hangs onto the ball. Runs very good routes and sells his fakes. Quick out of his breaks and is very difficult to jam at the line. Clutch; plays his best at big moments.
Weaknesses: Not very big and lacks great speed. More of a slot/possession-type receiver rather than a gamebreaker.
Projection: Late-round pick or free agent will be hard to keep off someone's final roster. Not flashy but a good, tough player."
