Displays sneaky athleticism for his size with the ability to set up blocks and accelerate after the catch. Is a savvy receiver who finds soft spots well vs. zone, knows how to look off his routes and loves to work his way back toward the quarterback. However, isn't real explosive off the line and isn't a real powerful/sudden route runner. Is consistently in motion off the snap or lined up off the line in the slot and doesn't seem capable of beating press in the NFL.
Impression: Does all the little things to move the chains and I could see him really endearing himself to an NFL coaching staff in training camp because of his ball skills and savvy. But from a physical/athletic standpoint, he's going to have a real tough time making an NFL roster."
Positive: Adequately sized pass catcher coming off a disappointing campaign. Extends his hands to make the reception away from his frame and looks the ball in. Works hard to come free and finds the open space on the field.
Negative: Clutches the ball against his frame and drops some very catchable throws. More often than not waits for the ball to get to him rather than coming back to the quarterback. Lacks deep speed.
Analysis: Zug displayed a lot of potential as a junior but failed to live up to expectations as a senior. He has good size and previously showed the pass catching skill to be a fifth receiver/special teams player in the NFL, but he must quickly get his game back on track to have any chance of making it out of camp this summer."
