Overview

Boateng is a transfer from Florida who has struggled on and off the field because of injuries and conduct. He will require a strong background check by any team interested in gambling on his physical talent. He is a bigger receiver with above average straight-line speed but lacks a finishing gear to pull away from pursuit on the deep balls. He tends to let the ball get into his body too often rather than reaching out to pluck the ball in his hands and will get the ball knocked loose by a big hit just after the ball arrives. He needs a lot of work on his route-running skills as well as his ability to read coverages on the move.

Analysis

Strengths

Possesses ideal size and bulk. Shows good initial quickness and has the lateral agility to be elusive in the open field after the catch. Fluid athlete that drops hips to maintain speed in transition. Fierce competitor that does not take plays off.

Weaknesses

Lacks a second gear to stretch the field. Struggles to release against a good press. Route-running skills are very raw and he is late recognizing coverage. Does not have natural hands and is very susceptible to drops. Fails to consistently secure the ball and will fumble. There are concerns about his character.
