And despite his size isn’t a real physical kid, can be overwhelmed off the line vs. press coverage, bodied down the field and doesn’t have the type of power/balance needed to up and snatch the football at a consistent level. Does possess a little shimmy off the line in order to beat press, uses his long arms well to keep himself clean and get into his route. However, isn’t a threat to really run away from defensive backs once he gains a step.
Too often lets throws get into his frame and isn’t the most sound of pluckers on passes off his frame. Adjust well to the catch and snaps his head around quickly underneath. Is a bit tight hipped out of his breaks and routinely is forced to gear down in order to re-direct and change directions.
Doesn’t generate much of a burst out of his breaks and isn’t going to separate much at any level. Showcases inconsistent effort as a blocker. At times can get down the field and deliver a jolt on contact, but at other times looks disinterested and easily allows him man to slip off defenders. Either way doesn’t use his hands well, leads with his shoulders too often and isn’t a guy who will stick through the play.
Impression: Lacks the deep speed to make plays vertically and I don’t think he’s he has the kind of play strength/hands/savvy to make it as an underneath guy. Free agent wide out in my mind."
Excellent leaper who shows the ability to high-point throws, particularly in the red zone.
Exhibits nice urgency off the line to set up defenders, though he rounds some breaks and lacks twitch to separate at the top of his stems (will have to earn his keep making contested grabs).
Has a lean, athletic build with adequate muscle definition, but could stand to improve his weight-room habits.
Production is suppressed in a poor offense, and could require patience grasping a complex playbook.
Hands, athletic ability and special-teams experience will get him a chance to impress in training camp."
Good athlete with a long stride; also a good leaper who will go up and get the ball; physical mismatch for a lot of CBs as he uses body well to protect the ball; sat out much of this spring with a knee injury, although it is not believed to be serious."
