Positives: Good height and long arms. Excellent speed downfield, and he can use his arms to create separation against smaller corners. Fast off the line, getting to top speed quickly. Elusive with the ball in his hands, and can change directions well. Lines up in the slot and outside. Good head fake on slant routes, as he plants and accelerates well. Good on shallow crossing routes, using his speed to get extra yardage. Negatives: Slight build and not very physical. Might struggle to get off press coverage and fight for inside position against stronger NFL corners. Ball security may be an issue, as he loses control on big hits. Must prove he can high-point and win a jump ball. Inconsistent using hands to snatch the ball, and will body-catch too often. Does not attack corners to block on run plays or screens, as he hesitates and allows them to get into the play. Will get a hand on someone for a second, but is inconsistent sustaining blocks on the outside.
