    PROS: Good hands and spacial awareness on the field. Most effective on the outside, one on one against defensive backs. Dominates corners, especially those on the smaller side. Deep ball specialist. Not the most fluid route runner but finds himself open. Works hard against zone overages. Insane red zone threat. Jump ball ability stems from his body control. Great technique as a blocker in space, bullies defensive backs. Pulls well on outside runs. Once he gets his hands on the defender, he's able to grip them up. Elite upside as a receiver.

    Cons: Lacks breakaway speed. Doesn't maximize his catch radius, making him QB-reliant at times. Too often slows down his run to track the ball, allows defensive back to re-emerge in the picture to make a play on the ball. Needs to high point more consistently to use his size to his advantage. Not much experience as an in-line blocker, making his transition to the next level risky.
