Strengths

Positives: Very tall with long arms and big hands. ... Lines up in the slot, in motion and on the line. ... Adjusts well to poorly thrown balls. ... Stays down coming out of stance to get a release. ... Not just a receiver, he's good enough in-line to handle defensive ends and linebackers. ... Releases downfield quickly, even when chipping an end on the way out. ... Gets pads down to make it more difficult to tackle him in the open field. ... Fights for extra yardage. Negatives: Lacks great straight-line speed needed to get separation from NFL linebackers and safeties. ... Not sudden into or out of breaks, and will round them off. ... Does not always secure the ball. ... Uses body to catch the ball at times. ... Doesn't always adjust to late-coming blitzers in pass protection."
