Scouting Report
Is a prototypical possession receiver with great athleticism and superb technique; he ranks among the best wideouts when at the top of his game. Excels at manipulating defenses to create space, and has the uncanny ability to contort his body to adjust to bad throws and make the improbable catch appear routine. Is acrobatic on sideline plays and can tiptoe the boundary with the best of them. Can amass impressive totals thanks to his high catch rate. Is not explosive off the snap and can be stymied by press coverage; he lines up primarily in the slot to avoid a lot of contact at the line of scrimmage. Seldom breaks tackles downfield and lacks the pace to win footraces to the end zone.
Long Range Potential: Outstanding wide receiver.
