Possesses good, not great, speed and lacks an elite second gear down the field. Possesses good footwork and balance into his routes, but is more smooth than sudden. Has a tendency to drift into and out of his breaks and isn't real patient when asked to set up a route. Is at his best running vertically down the field on the post/corner/nine and using his strider speed to run away from defenders.
Showcases a willingness to work the middle of the field. Is fearless when asked to go up and take a hit and possesses the wrist strength to hold onto the football. Now, lacks ideal physicality down the field in jump ball situations. Struggles to reset his feet and get his balance back underneath him, will drift down the field and struggle to fight off a corner and come down with a catch.
Impression: A thin, smooth route runner who can beat press and get down the field. Isn't a real sharp/polished route runner, but is smooth in the vertical pass game and is tough over the middle of the field."
Positive: Solid underneath receiver who flashes the ability to make plays down the field. Quickly releases off the line, sells routes, and nicely adjusts to the errant throw. Plays with good balance and body control and uses his frame to protect the pass. Extends to make the reception away from his frame and possesses relatively soft hands. Effectively makes over-the-shoulder catches downfield.
Negative: Takes his eyes off the ball on occasion, which leads to drops. Does not get results as a blocker.
Analysis: Nunez has been very productive the past three seasons at Western Michigan and has potential as a fifth receiver at the next level if he learns to does the little things well."
Strengths: Good hands and route running.
Weaknesses: Lacks elite speed.
