Overview

Meier is a converted quarterback that made the move to wide receiver his junior year to get on the field. He is a good route runner that knows how to use his size to shield defenders from the ball and shows good strength to the ball when in a crowd. He is a bit of a strider and can sneak by opponents by varying his speed and lulling them to sleep but lacks the top end speed to just run by people. He is a little stiff and struggles to sink his hips and come out of his breaks with a big burst. He lacks the speed and explosiveness to get a lot of yards after the catch. He has a chance as a possession receiver but is not the type teams are looking for as potential starters.

Analysis

Strengths

Meier possesses good height, prototypical bulk and outstanding overall size. High-character prospect. Excels reading coverages and converting routes to find the open spaces. Displays good hands, plucks and quickly tucks away. Uses his frame and wide catch radius to make plays in traffic.

Weaknesses

Meier lacks the top end speed desired from starting receivers. Will not threaten defenses deep down the field. Doesn’t have the explosiveness to eat up cushions. Lacks the burst out of his breaks to separate. Will not gain much after the catch.
