Strengths
Justyn is a big receiver with all the physical skills to make him a number one receiver at the next level. He is 6'4 205 lbs and can out run DB's in a straight line and can go in and out of his cuts with extreme precision. He catches the ball over the middle and then spreads out wide to beat you down the sideline. He is really great at making contested catches and high pointing the ball over the defender, he is able to hang on to tough catches because of his really strong hands.
Weaknesses
His biggest weakness when watching his film is that he tends to get brought down by one defender in the open field, he has all the tools to be a great yards after catch guy but just doesn't break a lot of tackles. Also at times he disappears for long stretches throughout the game, I am not sure whether this is because his offense is really stacked and he is just not getting looks or that he is not getting open for those times.
Overall Analysis
He is the prototypical WR according to all the tangible metrics. He has elite speed, height, and athleticism. He is able to high point balls over defenders and is really great at using his hands and speed to create separation when he needs to. I would like him see break more tackles when he has the ball in his hands but that will improve as he improves his NFL body. My Projection: 1st round, Top 15 if he has another really great season.
