Comments
Speed
8.40
Elite speed, he's been clocked in the 4.33 range at Louisville.
Pass Catching
7.00
Has some natural catching ability but tends to use his body instead of his hands, which can lead to some drops.
Route Running
6.00
More of a gadget player at this point in his career, they don't ask him to run many routes straight up like a normal WR.
Strength
5.80
A little stronger than you think for his size, but he could definitely use some improvement in this area.
Vertical Ability
7.00
Hard to tell because he doesn't showcase it much, but I'd bet its over a 40 inch vertical jump.
Run after Catch
8.50
Explosive athlete with the ball in his hands. Excellent speed, change of direction and vision allow him to make cuts almost nobody else can make.
Catching in Traffic
7.00
Same as before with the hands, but he doesn't snatch the ball with his hands very often, more of a body catcher which leads to drops.
Big Play Ability
8.20
Big play waiting to happen, he's excellent in the open field and can make almost anybody miss.
Durability
7.00
He's been dinged up a bit here and there but nothing serious so far. His size could make him injury prone at the next level.
Toughness
7.20
He has some toughness to him, despite his size but it's not a strength of his by any means.
Productivity
8.20
Great productivity so far in his Louisville career. Over 1,000 yards as a true Freshman and on pace for the same type of production again in 2020.
Character
8.00
HC Scott Satterefield has praised him as "one of those guys who wants to get all the reps he can."
Deep Threat
8.20
With his speed, college DB's have a tough time staying in front of him.
Over the Middle
7.70
Creates good seperation over the middle of the field on slants, posts, digs, etc.
Intangibles
8.00
Again, his coaches seem to love him and speak very highly of him and his work ethic.
Consistency
7.50
Consistently uses his speed and agility to create seperation but I ding him a bit here because his route running and catching aren't always consistent.
Strengths
Elite speed, agility guy right now that allows him to create a ton of seperation. Has great run after catch ability and is a home run threat every time he touches the ball.
Weaknesses
Not great at catching of the football or with his route running, which he'll need to improve upon to continue his success in the NFL.
Overall Analysis
Very fun and exciting player to watch. His speed and agility will translate, no questions there. I do wonder if the lack of crisp routes will catch up to him in the NFL, same with his drops. I'd give him a 2nd round grade right now, with a chance to jump into the first if he can cut down on drops and show off a more advanced route tree the rest of his college career.
