Player Notes Pros

  • Incredibly smooth & efficient movements on his routes, both in releases & on his stems 

  • Like his awareness to lean into opposing defenders & push for some extra real estate 

  • Has frequently shown high end drop of the hips & knee bend to sink & gear down 

  • Made tough concentration catches, both sliding grabs & extending away from his body

  • He can be a dominant blocker, his framing is pretty effective and he offers good squeeze

  • Ran a pretty diverse route tree during his four years playing for Vanderbilt

  • Inside/outside receiving option the technique & instincts to handle sophisticated routes

  • Lipscomb can uncover with efficient, quiet routes on the first and second levels

  • Very impressive body control, run after catch the catch ability, & sideline awareness 

  • He has the talent & measurables to become an extremely productive NFL wide out

Player Notes Cons

 

  • Bigger, more physical defenders at the pro level may play bully ball with him outside 

  • Doesn't get off contact with the kind of crisp separation he'll need to for him to thrive

  • His ball skills are good but his hands don't always catch the ball super clean 

  • There are several instances of double catches on film that make you hold your breath 

  • Personally don't think he's really got high end levels of explosiveness in him either
