EVALUATION

190 bench, 400 squat, 475 deadlift, 225 clean || tremendous value as a returner on special teams - YAC machine; thrives on breaking tackles, making guys miss and creating after the catch - sees the field well; good vision- extremely gifted at making something out of nothing; navigates thru openings and gaps seamlessly as he make his way down the field - good agility/shiftiness - runs with the ball high & tight for security - good route runner; room for improvement and added nuances - catches the ball cleanly; soft hands, strong grip, secures the ball - adjusts to the ball in the air; good flexibility and athleticism - good frame to build upon and add muscle mass/strength - makes contested catches; strong thru contact; displays field awareness - film doesn't show elite long speed but it is adequate; he takes really big strides when he runs & eats up enough ground to maintain separation - not a great blocker but will get in front of guys and make attempts downfield - versatile, productive route tree; effective in screens, middle of the field, and deep balls - does a nice job sticking his foot in the ground and getting upfield; displays good start/stop ability; bursts out of cuts - he just has a unique way of staying up and moving forward, even in tight crowds; strong center of gravity - stays active in plays - high ceiling player
