Will try to run past defenders down the field if they start to sit on his routes and is a tough cover the further down the field he gets. Possesses "plus" ball skills and concentration when asked to go get the football since he consistently extends his arms and uses his length and strong hands in order to make a play.
Exhibits a good feel underneath sitting down in zone coverage and working his way back toward the quarterback, limiting the corners' angles toward the football. Showcases a decent combo of power and shiftiness after the catch, can gain half a step, but doesn't have the acceleration to run by anybody.
IS tighter in the hips and really rolls into his sharply breaking routes. Doesn't create any kind of burst for himself out of his breaks and needs to get his body between the ball and man in order to box out and make a play. Seems to get hung up far too often vs. any kind of press coverage or physicality in the short passing game.
Doesn't use his hands well to keep himself clean and lacks the short area quickness to gain a step and separate, even vs. linebackers in zone. Will get after it in the run game, is physical on the edge, displays a willingness to block and is tough guy to disengage from once he gets his hands on you.
Impression: Possesses good size and ball skills, but I just don't see him as a dynamic enough option, even at his size, to consistently get open underneath. Looks like a size free agent only."
Shows good field awareness, can extend outside his frame and is competitive after the catch, but has concentration drops and struggles to catch on contact.
Route running needs work — has build-up speed and his flexibility and burst are just average.
Smart, durable, inconsistent, short-to-intermediate receiver with good personal and football character."
