Overview

Gurley is a wide receiver in a tight end's body that could develop into a quality reserve at the next level. He is not exactly fast, but he is a long strider that can stretch the field down the seam. He uses his great length to make catches even when he is covered, but he does not have reliable hands. He also is a bit stiff in the hips and lacks the fluidity to get open in man coverage. Gurley is tough kid that seeks out contact as a blocker and works the middle of the field which makes him an attractive later round prospect.


Strengths

Gurley is a monster wide receiver. Long strider with deceptive deep speed. Fluid route runner that finds holes in zone coverage. Uses frame to shield defenders from the ball and consistently wins jump balls. Fearless on crossing routes and strong runner after the catch. Willing and very capable blocker.

Weaknesses

Lacks explosion off the line and out of his breaks. Does not always beat the press off the line despite his size. Runs a bit high and struggles to maintain speed in transition. Lets the ball get inside his frame and drops too many catchable passes. Will not make people miss in the open field after the catch.

Grade

3.1
