He has good hands doesn't drop easy catches. Can let the ball get into his body sometimes, and doesn't make contested catches.

8.50
He is really quick in and out of his breaks. He is really great at using the double moves to get open deep. Uses his deep routes to set up his quick routes.
Strength
8.00
It doesn't happen often but when the defenders get a hold of him and are able to get physical they are able to push him around.
Vertical Ability
8.10
Doesn't jump over the top of defenders, and has a hard time climbing the ladder to make a catch.
Run after Catch
8.00
Really fast and shifty, but doesn't break many tackles. Can break a big play if he has some open space to run to.
Catching in Traffic
7.80
Can make catches in traffic on deep balls, but when it is short or over the middle he struggles to hang on to the ball when he is exposed to get hit.
Big Play Ability

He has really good instincts to get open down the field, uses his double moves well. That is his only trick doesn't make big plays on quick throws.

Strengths
He is incredibly quick and has great straight line speed. That is paired with his route running ability where he is really proficient at double move deep routes, where he tracks the deep ball really well. He forces the D to play off of him so he can then break off a few curl and in cutting routes because they are concerned about him getting over the top of their coverage.
Weaknesses
He is small and not very strong, and you can see it when he blocks or when ever a bigger DB gets a hold of him. He is also not a physical pass catcher, which means he has a hard time hanging on to the ball either when he gets hit or when he exposes himself over the middle to get hit.
Overall Analysis
He is a really impressive deep threat with really solid route running skills. He catches most of his balls on deep double move routes, which force defenders to play off him. He is not a physical receiver at all and could really use some more muscle when going to the next level. He could also improve his hands by making them stronger to hold onto more contested catches. My Projection: 3rd or 4th round, could move up depending on the season he has.
