Mental

Is he instinctual? Does he play with urgency?

Can get bullied in press but fights through hand fighting and is willing to play contested balls. After the catch will fight through tackles and fight for the extra yard on the sideline instead of running out of bounds.

Athleticism

Compact and explosive receiver. Above the line release off the line and displays good COD/quickness cutting in and out of routes. Will make players miss with jukes after the catch and makes quick decisions to knife through defenders in tight spaces after the catch.

Technical

Does he have a refined skill set? Is he a projection or is his game developed enough to contribute early?

Has a strong release off the line and runs good routes with a good ability to track the ball down when it's in the air as well as finding the open spots in the zone. Followed his blockers after the catch on screens well and made quick decisions where to go vertically after catching the ball. Catches the ball very well with his hands and can stretch to make the catch at the top of his radius.

Summary

What role does he play? What is his initial projection?
Intriguing prospect who has a slight frame but plays tough, his frame/size is his only real question mark. Played mostly outside vs in the slot (79%/21%) and was Penn State's go to playmaker on offense. 26 of his 92 receptions came on screen plays as he is an explosive player who makes quick decisions after catching the ball and makes players miss with jukes after the catch. Can struggle if pressed but has the speed to run by slower corners and make plays down field with very good hands (only 2 drops this season).
