SUMMARY
 

Stefon Diggs is a WR with rare dangerous speed who can

make would be tacklers miss in the open field. He has

the strength to break some tackles and has great body

control to adjust to throws. Diggs is maybe undersized

at 6’0 tall, and needs to prove durability and game to

game consistency. I believe Diggs has the kind of speed

to be a deep threat in the NFL, and the talent to someday

be a number 2 receiver in the NFL.
