Projection

First Round

Requisite size for receiver or defensive back with a lean, athletic build that can add some more mass. Dynamic playmaker at the high school level with outstanding junior year production at receiver and cornerback. Also provides a dangerous return game option. Excels in the short area with terrific lateral twitch and explosion, which fosters separation, whether at the line of scrimmage or the top of the route. For the same reasons is dangerous as a run-after-catch threat. Also uses suddenness to close on the catch point as a defender. Elite body control in his routes and when the ball is in the air. Football IQ combines with functional athleticism to provide great feel for tempo as a route runner. Smoothly accelerates and decelerates with unique combination of fluidity and twitch. Shows advanced nuance in route subtleties and after-the-catch creativity. Ball production on defense reflects ball skills enhanced by extensive offensive snaps. Layered on-field context provides a good athletic foundation along with some encouraging testing numbers. However, no track and field or multi-sport context. Can probably squeeze some more juice out of the top end of what is good field speed. Signs point to playing receiver in the long run, but could his ceiling be higher at corner? Regardless, one of the nation's top two-way prospects in the 2023 class with long-term NFL Draft early-round potential on either side of the ball.
