Scouting Report
Assets: A rare mix of size and athleticism for a wide receiver: built like a tight end yet also has legitimate No.1 wideout speed and agility. A big-play pass-catcher who tracks the deep ball very well and will out-jump most defenders. Uses his frame to his advantage on catches, and can dominate for stretches.
Flaws: Doesn't always battle like he could for yardage after the catch, and could do a better job of using his size as a blocker. Off-field trouble with the law raises character concerns. Seems to be losing a step with age.
Career Potential: Slowly-fading star big-play wideout (when focused).
