However, has some savvy about his game when asked to beat press coverage. Uses his sneaky lateral quickness to get corners off balance before putting his foot in the ground and gaining a step. Allows his pad level to rise and can be slowed on a secondary punch vs. press, but for the most part can hold his own on the outside. Doesn’t generate much of a burst out of his breaks.
Isn’t a guy who will ever separate much in man coverage at any level as he needs to win with his initial quickness, gain a step and shield the defender. However, struggled to catch the football not only in traffic, but all areas of the game on tape. Had a tough time holding onto the football and adjusting once he gains a step.
Simply has too many lapses of concentration even when he’s open and doesn’t consistently catch the football. Is a willing blocker on the outside, displays good strength into contact, extends his arms and works hard to stay on blocks.
Impression: For his size he does possess good short-area quickness in order to get into his routes. However, isn’t the kind of quick-twitch athlete to ever create much separation for himself and he just doesn’t catch the football well enough to mature into a consistent big body type receiver."
