Andrew Kamienski is not a name you usually hear on Saturdays or in big televised games, but make no mistake about it, he can flat out ball. Kamienski is from North Central College, a small division 3 school in Illinois, but nothing is small about this kids playing ability.
Andrew Kamienski has substantial receiver instincts as he knows how to attack a defensive backs leverage to create separation, especially when he is breaking or cutting out of his routes. To add onto that, his quickness out of his breaks are exceptional and I think that helps him often when facing 1 on 1 coverage.
Another great ability is his enormous catch radius. You can put the ball anywhere in his vicinity and he will attack it and come down with it. One concern I have of his is the level at which he played.
Being that he comes from a division 3 program, in the conference CCIW, (College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin) it leaves the question can he compete against better competition? My second concern is if he is able to perform at this high of a level in a different system. He might need to be in the right place to succeed.
Kamienski reminds me a lot of Antonio Brown. Both can run the entire route tree from the slot and outside, and they both have the ability to create separation getting in and out of breaks. He also possesses good sideline awareness. I also see some Cooper Kupp in his style of play with his lateral quickness and change of direction.
