Wide Receiver Specific Traits

Separation Skills
2
Good initial burst for big WR. Fluid and smooth athlete. Natural size, speed and athletic ability to separate. Can drop his weight without gearing down. Needs to improve strength. Doesn't always dictate routes and can get out-muscled on occasion. But flashes some savvy both getting off the line and as an intermediate and deep route runner. Should only improve in this area with more experience.
Ball Skills
1
Impressive natural hand-eye coordination. Huge catching radius. Can catch over his head with ease. Natural plucking on the run. Very confident attacking the football. Can adjust to the ball thrown behind him and below his waist. Does a very nice job of finding the ball over his shoulder without tipping off the DB too early.
Big play ability
1
Above average top-end speed with ideal length as a vertical route runner. Shows body control and closing burst to track the deep ball. Is fluid, quick and agile for size. Can stop-and-start quickly. Consistently makes first defender miss and has enough wiggle to frequently make multiple defenders miss in space. Good vision and feel as open-field runner.
Competitiveness
2
Very competitive pass catcher. Wants the ball in his hands. Plays with passion and confidence. Not overly physical as a WR but also not afraid to go over the middle and will secure the ball while taking a big hit. A position and wall-off type of blocked. Adequate effort but inconsistent results due to lacking technique and occasional inability to sustain.
