Scouting Report
The big, strong wide receiver is a vertical threat thanks to his speed, size and ball skills. He has the extra gear needed to shake defenders, though much of the rest of his game is still a work in progress. He is likely to fit best in a vertical passing game, where his strengths are more likely to shine. He has to do a better job of getting away from press coverage and not cheating on his development as a route runner.
Long Range Potential: Promising wide receiver.
