Analysis

Strengths

Athletic and flexible. Accelerates off the line. Field fast. Stretches the field and tracks deep throws. Gets in and out of breaks quickly. Good hands. Playmaking ability as a receiver and return man. Has worked as a gunner. Well respected, coachable team captain.

Weaknesses

Lacks ideal size. Has very short arms and small hands. Limited functional strength. Can be jammed and rerouted. Can be outmuscled for contested catches. Cannot bust through tackles. Poor blocker. Will be a 24-year-old rookie.

Bottom Line

Lean, fluid, speedy Division II standout with a playmaker's resume. Will have to overcome size and strength limitations, but his burst and hands give him the opportunity to earn a role as a slot receiver and return man.
