Scouting Report
Assets: Explosively fast and quick, and can be a terror for teams trying to cover him. Gets good separation on man-to-man coverage and then can be gone down the field. Has good hands and plucks the ball from the air. A superb route-runner and a dangerous deep-play threat. Also excellent as a return man.
Flaws: A bit frail and somewhat undersized. Must prove he can take the pounding on a regular basis and pay the price to be productive. Will occasionally lose focus, leading to missed plays. Somewhat streaky.
Career Potential: Mercurial veteran big-play star wideout.
