Player Notes Pros

  • Has truly elite burst and long speed as a former decorated track and field athlete

  • Incredible catch radius, great extension & concentration to passes all around his frame

  • Seamless body control that allows him to adjust, contort, & effectively position himself

  • Length in his frame makes him a consistent winner even with average accuracy

  • One of the most explosive athletes in college football who also has strength throughout

  • Excellent job of changing the pace of his vertical stems to get DB's on their heels

  • As a route runner, he’s able to get in & out of horizontal breaks quickly & efficiently

  • Possesses elite feet & athleticism which allow him to be an effective route runner

  • Attacks leverage as a route runner well, and his vertical cuts can generate separation

  • Gets DB's off balance with his shiftiness at the line of scrimmage & double moves

  • Legitimate RZ threat due to his frame, ball skills, & willingness to attack the ball

  • Easily one of the highest ceilings in the entire draft class, an absolute stud

  • Impressive grabs where he plucks the ball outside his frame & secures the football

Player Notes Cons

 

  • Technical issues need to be cleaned up to be more consistent & effective as route runner

  • Will raise his upper body during his stem, not maintaining low pads level desired

  • Average upper body strength at the catch point, preventing him from being dominant

  • Shown lapses in concentration while tracking simple passes or blocking on the edge
