Scouting Report
A shrewd and instinctive operator, he thrived in a feature role in college showing the clutch traits and flexibility to be a difference maker. Size, play strength and clock times work in his favor on a variety of routes, both from the slot and on the outside. Combines change of speeds with body control to win separation and closes the deal with quick, strong hands at the point of the catch. Must sharpen his routes and match the physicality of pro defenders in order to thrive in his role.
Long Range Potential: Showcase, playmaking wide receiver with upside.
