Athleticism

Does he have the athletic traits you want?

A above average explosion out of his stance is followed by good speed and route running/cutting in and out of breaks. He physically can do a lot of things that make him quite an intriguing prospect. Has the strength to compete against physical corners both in press and during hand fighting at the catch point. Is exciting to watch after the catch as he can break tackles and make people miss with quick cutting moves.

Technical

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

Drops are a serious issue. I counted 13 drops on 96 catchable balls. If he can clean that up he has the tools to be a very good player. His play vs press, route running, and run after catch are all above average to good. Has the prototypical mix of size, speed, and athleticism to make an impact.

Summary

What role does he play? What is his initial projection?
Jalen Tolbert is an X Receiver who is comfortable lining up anywhere and excelled using short crossing routes mixed with vertical routes. He has the prototypical mix of strength, speed, and size for the NFL and is competitive against physical DBs. Catching ability is his biggest red flag.
