Scouting Report
Assets: 'Megatron' was a truly elite playmaking go-to wideout. He brought a unique mix of jumbo size, great speed, hands, & focus, and was simply overpowering physically. He consistently broke tackles, ran like a tailback, and was exceedingly smooth in the open field. Also incredibly productive on a consistent basis, and a hard worker.
Flaws: Being the focus of so many defensive schemes and double-teams took a toll physically over time. While constantly making big plays, he wasn't quite as productive in the end zone as his talent and prolific catch rate would suggest.
Career Potential: All-time great wide receiver.
