EVALUATION

4.06 GPA || 215 bench, 345 squat, 225 clean || made All-Region team in junior season - slot receiver - finished junior season with 46 receptions, 676 yds, 4 TD - unselfish player; wants to see his guys eat too - stays active on plays where he isn't getting the ball - more than willing blocker - technical/physical aspects of route running are raw but shows understanding of the nuances involved in good route running (selling the defense on the wrong route with your eyes, baiting them out of position, etc); knows how to get open - provides versatility; special teams returner, used in sweeps - utilizes my 'Three S' technique when catching the football [Soft Hands, Strong Grip, Secure the ball]; will meet the ball at it's highest point - fluid athlete with good flexibility - solid YAC ability; doesn't have elite short area quickness but has really smooth & efficient stop-start ability; all-around smooth/fluid movement skills in the open field - sees the field well - decent long speed but can be caught from behind (lacks a second gear) - strikes me as a guy who could be more explosive & much faster as he continues to grow, learn and develop - plays with a good football IQ and instinctual understanding of his position but will need to improve technique in route running and work on getting stronger and faster - a promising prospect with a bigger upside than most would think
