Projection

2-3 Round Day 2

Lean, sinewy build with height in the 6-foot range that accompanies versatile play style outside or in the slot. Will need to add mass and strength to combat bigger, stronger corners in press and in cluttered contested situations.

Elite feel for the position with ahead-of-his-age technical acumen. Great ball-tracking ability. Adjusts to the ball in the air as well as just about any receiver in his class. Displays outstanding body control and mid-air adjustment skill. Acrobat in single coverage or traffic.

Dangerous run-after-catch threat with very good functional athleticism and field speed. Shows top-tier foot quickness with virtually limitless potential as a route runner. Highly productive across three varsity seasons with almost 2,900 receiving yards and nearly 50 TD catches.

Possesses a strong athletic profile that includes encouraging track and field data in the long jump and triple jump categories. Also a member of a Texas 6A regional-qualifying 4x200 relay team.

Has occasional concentration lapses that can produce surprising drops considering generally sticky strong-handedness and trapeze artist-like difficult-catch flare. Again, needs some time in the weight row to continue developing physically.

Early questions about top-end speed quieted based on repeated live exposures and what we have seen from functional field speed. Could provide early snaps in the right role with long-term potential to develop into a true impact player. Projects as a high-major multi-year starter with a developmental ceiling in the early round of the NFL Draft.
