Has good speed for his size but average speed for the position. Especially considering he is mostly a deep threat.
Has great hands, he is able to make fingertip catches. Also makes one handed catches with ease.
Has good releases and is quick in and out of cuts. But he can get lazy when at times, and when there are curl he doesn't come back to the ball.
He is a big guy at about 225 lbs, able to block down the field.
He is good at tracking the ball deep down the field, able to high point the football. He is 6'3.
Run after Catch
He is a physical runner but doesn't break big runs down the field.
Catching in Traffic
Able to catch in traffic on the sideline and deep. But over the middle he has a tendency to not come back to the ball and defenders are able to bat the ball down.
Big Play Ability
Makes impressive down the field catches in traffic. Has great body control and always finds his feet in bounds.
Has a big frame and great athleticism and body control to make catches over and around defenders down the field.
Over the Middle
Has good hands and speed to make these catches. But lacks the route discipline and defenders can reach around him to make a play.
He is a player with a lot potential, he has impressive athleticism and speed at 6'3 225 lbs. He has great body control, very proficient at making back shoulder catches. He has really great hands with the ability to make one handed catches, he uses his hands to catch instead of letting the ball get to his body. He is also a very solid blocker because of his size.
His biggest deficiencies are mostly on the mental side of the game. He can get caught getting lazy on some routes when he feels like he is not in the play or he may not be open. When he runs come back or in breaking routes he doesn't come back to the ball enough and is prone to have a lot of batted balls on these routes. He also makes a good amount of mental mistakes, even though the confusion in the routes being run may not be all his fault.
He has great potential, but also he is definitely not a refined player yet. You can teach him route running, and you can work with him on the playbook. He will be a really solid receiver in the NFL if he gets around the right coaches and organization because he has the physical talent. My Projection: 3rd or 4th round he can sneak up to the 2nd or even 1st round if he has a really impressive season this upcoming year.
