Charles is an athletic mover, especially when triggering off the line of scrimmage. He has good power to fight off hand jabs at the line of scrimmage and is very savvy to get back into the path of his route quickly off the line. He uses his body well underneath to shield himself from defenders when working zones and is a very reliable hands catcher who could handle being a go-to option on third downs at the next level. Charles is still developing as a blocker but has all the physical traits to be successful at the next level, as he is strong and has a well put-together frame. He stood out as a very competitive player who will likely work hard to hone his skills.


Charles is a very straight-line route runner who could have issues separating from defenders at the next level who are savvy to diagnose his routes. He looks unaware in-phase and is far from a point of control in his game where he can set up defenders to lean on them or get them off balanced. He is a flat-footed runner and has trouble sticking his foot in the ground or bending to break quickly in his routes. He has decent wiggle and speed after the catch but isn't much of a threat deep and was utilized mostly in the short passing game at Georgia. The way he beat defenders in college, through size and power, will be much more difficult at the next level.
