Does a nice job setting up corners with a jab step, uses his long arms well to keep himself clean and can quickly get into his route. Looks comfortable working the three-step game off the line and uses his body to shield and go get the football.
Lacks ideal explosion once a corner gets their hands on him and it takes him a bit to get up to speed on his outside release, but does a nice job dropping his pad level and trying to stay low when absorbing contact.
For his size is a pretty clean/sharp route runner on inward breaking routes, need to slow his feet in order to get out of his breaks, but works back well toward the football and identifies soft spots underneath.
Is an average athlete for his size, doesn't possess a real explosive element out of his breaks and doesn't have a real change of gear as a route runner. Needs to do a better job extending his arms in order to pluck the football. Too often let's throws get into his frame and I would like to see him use his length more consistently.
Possesses the ability to track the football vertically. Isn't a burner, looks like a mid/high 4.5 guy. However, possesses deceptive strider speed and once he get those wheels turning he can be a tough cover down the field.
However, despite his size isn't a big time jump ball threat. Lacks ideal power, struggles with balance when trying to collect himself and will drift away from the football. Would like to see him set his feet and really attack the throw more consistently.
Will get after it in the run game. Is long armed, works to stay on blocks and has some nasty when asked to cut down defenders off the line. Isn't overly physical, but can win on the outside.
Impression: A big wide out who uses his skill set to get off press and has some sneaky strider speed down the field. Isn't going to separate a ton in the NFL, but can win in the three step game, work the middle of the field."
Can swim off press, knows where the sticks are and uses his size to box out smaller cornerbacks.
Production has been affected by poor quarterback play, but has limited suddenness to separate vs. man coverage.
Lets some throws into his body and is just an average blocker.
Best chance will come in a West Coast system."
Not all that quick off the snap, but is a long strider who covers a lot of ground once he gets underway;
Was a former state high school sprint champion at both 200 and 400Ms;
Not all that physical and can be jammed at the line of scrimmage, but has great hands and will catch the ball in traffic; good red zone target who had 8 TD receptions last fall;
Former high school RB is also dangerous with the ball in his hands; suffered a concussion in spring practice this year."
