Strengths

Gates has NFL deep speed coupled with average height. Explodes off the line. Excels at taking the short pass and turning it into a big play. Is explosive and elusive in the open field. Flashes the ability to pluck and snatch and make the tough catch. Willing to go over the middle.

Weaknesses

Thin build. Very raw and lacks football experience. Route-running needs a lot of polish. Susceptible to press coverage. Will drop the catchable pass on occasion. Lacks awareness against zone coverage. Blocking needs work. Was kicked off his junior college basketball team before enrolling at Abilene Christian and switching to football. Set to be a 25-year-old rookie.
