Incredibly fast in and out of his cuts, not as much straight line speed but he still has blazing speed nonetheless.
Has good strong hands, consistently catches hard thrown balls into a tight window.
Really proficient at short quick routes, like slants and drag routes. Runs all the routes you want as your slot receiver, so quick in and out of breaks almost impossible to cover 1v1.
He may be small but he packs a large punch. He runs with physicality and is able to push defender off of him. Short so he has a lot of leverage.
He is really short and doesn't really seem to jump for many balls.
Run after Catch
When he gets the ball he turns into a RB. Runs with physicality and also has a shiftiness to him, always takes more than one defender to bring him down.
Catching in Traffic
Makes catches over the middle when he is exposed to taking a big hit. Can get to any ball if it is throw low.
Big Play Ability
Has the ability to break a run off of a screen or a slant at any point. But isn't much of a deep threat because of the position he plays and his size.
Got injured after 4 games last year
Makes exposed catches over the middle.
Over 1,000 yards and 12 TD's when healthy for a full season.
Doesn't go deep very often, if he does it is either a wheel route or a seam route. He is limited by his size and lack of leaping ability.
Over the Middle
Gets open all the time over the middle, makes catches in traffic and while getting hit. He is a slot receiver.
He is really impressive when he gets the ball in his hands, he is a physical runner that can also run away from you. He is really proficient at running routes because he is so quick in and out of his breaks. Consistently makes catches over the middle with the threat of a big hit. He is an all purpose player, can be used for kick returns, end around's, and he can line up all over the offense.
Not tall at all at only 5'9. And he could do a better job using his hands instead of his body to catch, which will take away a good chunk of his dropped balls. He is not a number 1 receiver because he is not one to make catches outside the numbers in 1v1 coverage simply because he isn't very tall and isn't a huge jumper.
He has the potential to become a really great slot receiver in the NFL, he has all the quickness and the toughness needed to play that position. He is not a number 1 receiver though because he would get overwhelmed by the size of some of the top DB's in the NFL. Definitely has the ability to become one of the best 2nd options in the league, mainly because of how good he is after the catch. My projection: 2nd or 3rd round
