Player Notes Pros

  • Insanely fast, just a blur in the open field, has the ability to blow by defenders

  • Elite hand strength at the catch point, makes contested catches in traffic look easy

  • Possesses rare body flexibility, has a great feel to contort his body to stay in bounds

  • An explosive and fluid ball carrier after the catch, slippery and difficult to bring down

  • Rare ability to accelerate and achieve unprecedented speed in the open field

  • Excellent at establishing his frame at the catch point and hauling in the ball

  • Works his tail off to block and competes with the ball in his hands post catch

  • He’s incredibly explosive with agility and with short area quickness as well

  • Effortless speed through route breaks of all angles & in quick game with slants

  • If you do not reroute him at the LOS, he will beat you with insane foot quickness

  • On deep balls he does a very good job of tracking the football & making tough catches

  • In the NFL he is a starter in the slot or on the outside on the strong side (Z)

  • Has the explosion, lower body strength, big play ability, hips and size to be a star

Player Notes Cons

 

  • Doesn’t have much experience fighting against press or running a diverse route tree

  • Not quite physical enough to handle the length or power of top press corners

  • Isn’t the most consistent at extending his catch radius & allows balls get into his frame

  • He won’t be a player who wins by boxing guys out defenders in the red zone
