Scouting Report
Shows nice anticipation, a great burst, and top deep speed (giving him a lot of big-play ability). Able to adjust in space, then blast past his defender on a dime. Shows excellent hands. Can make plays out of the backfield if needed. A good punt returner. Lacks size and needs more bulk to deal with big, physical corners who jam on the line. Needs to keep working on his overall fundamentals as a receiver. Has taken awhile learning to get the most out of his exceptional tools.
Long Range Potential: Star big-play wideout and return man.
