Overview

Hodge was a borderline bust during his first three seasons with Ole Miss but came on during his final year to catch 70 passes for 1,135 yards and eight touchdowns. He has a tendency to run sloppy routes and is not very physical when going over the middle to catch the ball in traffic. He is athletic and has shown flashes of ability to make tough catches or to adjust to the ball in flight and make the acrobatic type catch. He runs better speed cuts than hard ones and will struggle when he has to show double cuts or drop his hips to come out of the hard cut.


Strengths

Hodge is tall with good bulk and athleticism. Possesses great body control to adjust to errant throws and make spectacular catches. Has a nose for the end zone and high-points the ball in the air. Very productive in the SEC.

Weaknesses

Lacks a second gear and will not be a deep threat at the next level. Plays high and idles down in transition preventing him from getting separation in and out of breaks. Runs inconsistent routes and shies away from running across the middle in traffic. Does not like to get physical and struggles against press coverage.

Grade

3.7
