However, he does a nice job getting into the body of the corner, giving himself additional grass along the sideline and adjusting to the football on the fade. Possesses impressive awareness, quickly snapping his head around and using his coordination to make a play on the throw. Is also a “plus” vertical route runner as he sets up his routes well and is clean out of his breaks.
Routinely is able to use his subtle head fakes to get defenders off balance and work his body between the ball and defender on the post/slant. Doesn’t generate much burst out of his breaks and isn’t every going to separate routinely at the next level. However, he has the hands to consistently pluck off his frame and secure the catch.
Limited as a route runner on sharply breaking routes. Is tighter in the hips, needs to gear down in order to get out of his breaks and doesn’t create much of a burst from defenders. Again, has some savvy and will set up his routes well and has some snap on the comeback. But, needs to round off his breaks when trying to separate at speed and is going to have a time creating space for himself in the NFL vs. man coverage.
Has a tendency too often to let the ball get into his frame when he creates some space, but consistently secures the football. Lacks much wiggle after the catch and isn’t going to make anyone miss. But is a hard working kid who will work on the outside in the run game and fight to stay on blocks and set the edge.
Impression: Possesses a big frame, knows how to play the game and catch the football. Athletically he’s limited and isn’t ever going to separate a ton at the next level. But could be in store for a strong senior year and his work ethic could endear him to an NFL coaching staff. Nevertheless, isn’t worth a pick."
