A very average athlete, runs his routes hard, but looks tight trying to get out of his breaks. Is forced to round off his routes and isn’t a guy who is going to separate on the outside at the next level. Isn’t real shifty off the line either, tends to really round off his release and try to run away/around press coverage when he sees a defender in his grill. Is at his best vs. a free release, deciphering the defense and working his way open.
Doesn’t have the kind of athleticism to consistently win his individual matchups vs. man coverage. However, does a great job uncovering when plays breakdown. Finds soft spots in the defense, settles down well and can pluck the football off his frame. Routinely seems to be working himself open, is fearless when asked to extend his arms and make a play in traffic.
Exhibits good hand/eye coordination and concentration near the sideline, keeping his feet in bounds and securing the football. Will get after in the run game, isn’t overly physical, but works hard, sticks to blocks and his effort consistently shows on the outside. Isn’t going to create for himself after the catch, but does a nice job getting his body between the ball and defender and absorbing contact.
Impression: Is just really limited in terms of athletic ability. Knows how to find soft spots and work himself open vs. zone, but there are just more intriguing athletes out there that can do the same."
