Reminds Us Of

Bryan Edwards Atlanta Falcons

A potential big-play machine out on the perimeter. Pretty green from a technical standpoint, which makes sense seeing as how he was deployed mostly as a quarterback early on in prep career. Still, has plenty of upside as a wide receiver given fluid movements patterns and ability to make contested catches. Size is unverified, but appears to be over 6-foot-2 and pushing 205 pounds after adding 15 pounds or so to what was once a thin, wiry frame. Thick through the glutes and has room to add even more mass in the upper half. Was initially viewed as a legitimate D1 basketball prospect given how he can consistently drive and finish at the rim. Could probably still probably make a mid-major's roster as a two guard, but has quickly realized that he can probably make a living on the gridiron scoring touchdowns. Rather competitive after the catch as he uses a long stride to weave his way through traffic and pick up chunks of yardage. Has improved significantly as a route runner over the past eight months or so, but seems to have more success creating separation on deeper stuff than he does shorter stuff at this stage in his development. Should eventually be able to hold his own as a blocker given height/weight combo, but doesn’t have a ton of experience engaging with defenders and getting them out of the way. Must also get better at attacking the football with his hands instead of just relying on favorable body positioning to make grabs. Caught just 20 passes as a junior, but got off to a hot start as a senior and was able to make an impact not only as a wide receiver, but also as a return man at one of the Sunshine State's more storied high school football programs. Will likely need some time to get adjusted to the speed of the game on Saturdays, but has the physical tools to emerge as a starter at the Power Five level and possibly even an NFL Draft pick one day if he keeps progressing and takes to coaching.
