Overview

Kerley is a shifty wide receiver that could be a valuable asset as a return man at the next level. He is a very raw route runner, but he has the lateral agility to separate on underneath routes and a knack for making people miss in the open field. He could develop into a solid slot receiver with time. As a return man, he utilizes his strong hands to secure the ball in traffic and quickly hits lanes for positive yardage. Kerley will likely be a mid-to-late round pick due to his play making abilities.


Strengths

Kerley explodes off the line and reaches top speed instantly. Possesses very reliable hands and quickly secures the ball. Has fluid hips and great lateral agility which makes him very difficult to tackle in the open field. Shows good vision as a return man and has the quickness to exploit seams. Willing run blocker.

Weaknesses

Lacks the top end speed to stretch the field at the next level. Does not run refined routes and struggles to find soft spots in zone coverage. Gets sloppy with his footwork at times and loses momentum in and out of his breaks. He is undersized and will be pushed around by bigger cornerbacks on the press.

Grade

5.5
