STRENGTHS

Big frame and strong hands allow him to excel while making contested catches. … Excels on back-shoulder throws. … Hard worker who shows willingness to accept coaching. … Willing blocker. … Strength and tenacity to discard press coverage and find space. … Has the ability to play inside in the slot as well as outside the numbers. … Very competitive and plays with a swagger.

WHAT THEY'RE SAYING

All this talk about [his lack of] separation is overdone. In the league, nobody gets that much separation anyway. You have to know how to use your body and route leverage and you need strong hands. From what I’ve seen of him, he does all that stuff well. Wide receivers coach with AFC team to NFL.com
