Scouting Report
Assets: A big-play threat: very speedy yet also tall, with long arms and great body control. Can make acrobatic catches and tough plays in traffic. Gets good separation downfield.
Flaws: Not powerfully built and must grow into his frame a bit. Still somewhat raw in terms of technique. Needs to keep developing as a route-runner.
Career Potential: Athletic deep wideout.
