Strengths:Gamer – Gives full effort and never seems to tire – Has excellent athleticism, fantastic body control and balance – Very adept at making the sideline catch – Accelerates to top speed very quickly – Makes things look easy on the field – Has excelled even against top competitors – Rarely drops a ball, catches the ball away from his body – Can play against the press and gain a clean release – Will be a big-time YAC threat, tough to bring down – Doesn’t seem like a diva on the field – Very good blocker.
Weaknesses: Not a 4.4 guy – Needs to sharpen up his routes, struggles at times to create separation – Loses some speed in and out of breaks – Some off the field issues (DUI), although it seems like has matured a lot this year – Hasn’t played in a pro offense, but does show the ability to run the full route tree.
