Scouting Report
Assets: Jumbo-sized and pretty athletic, with a fantastic wingspan and good body control. Very, very hard to cover or stop in the end zone and in jump-ball situations. Also has big hands that let him make tough catches. Fairly agile for his size and uses his frame to get open. Makes over-the-shoulder catches in stride.
Flaws: Not a downfield burner and isn't explosive (either in getting separation or as a leaper). Must show he's fully committed to improving his overall approach (including route running, blocking, and the little things needed to succeed as a pro).
Career Potential: Massive, athletic playmaking wideout with big upside.
