Uses his body well to box out defenders, but isn’t a natural plucker, too often in traffic likes to shield but lets throws get into his frame. Looks more natural running the outside breaking routes, is more coordinated setting up defenders, drops his pad level well and looks sharper when asked to separate, but again struggles to generate much of a burst. Displays the ability to adjust to the football and will go up and stab the throw at its highest point.
However, struggles with concentration and has a tendency to put the ball on the ground when forced to use his hands. Isn’t real sudden/powerful off the line vs. beat press coverage. Consistently allows corners to get their hands on him, is slowed in to his routes and doesn’t have any dynamic quality to shed and separate.
Looks content to simply run his way through the bump and routinely/easily is re-routed. Possesses average straight-line speed at best for his size, but doesn’t play that fast. Isn’t a threat to get behind defenses and even on his vertical routes he seems to just drift into/out of his breaks and never really has his feet under him allowing him to generate a burst. Wasn’t real physical on the edge when asked to block in the run game.
Possesses a big frame and long arms but wasn’t real passionate through contact. Displays a little short area quickness after the catch and can side step a tackler, but gets overextended with his footwork and isn’t going to make many defenders miss in the NFL.
Impression: Is a big guy with a long frame, but lacks the quickness and/or physicality to consistently make plays vs. NFL caliber defensive backs in man coverage at the next level."
Has yet to figure out what it means to work nor shown he is willing to do the dirty work as a blocker and on special teams to make it as a pro."
