Deep ball threat. Will climb the ladder to for the catch and will make it. Has great hands. Will create separation out of routes and keep it. Can make defenders miss after the catch and has excellent ball tracking ability. Played off and on at Western Kentucky before ending up at Benedictine but can use that experience to compete well against NFL defensive backs. Needs to use more of hands to separate himself from others. More than likely 7rd/UDFA. Will be extremely effective on is a very valuable special teams asset.
Side note: Having played against him personally guarding him was a competition every single snap. He used his length and speed well. My reaction is that given a chance will make an impact on any professional team roster.
