Comparison

Roddy White Atlanta Falcons

Owns above average size with a solid build. Technically sound receiver with good size and massive production against strong competition in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex playing against teams in the largest classification in Texas (Class 6A). Adjusts impressively to the ball in flight. Shows encouraging hands-catching consistency. Fairly quick off the line and effectively subtle in downfield routes. Often gets defender leaning and sells the DB one way to get separation. Possesses adequate top-end speed verified in a combine environment. Flashes impressive lateral mobility that manifests in his ability to get yards after the catch in the short and intermediate levels, as well as the screen game. Can line up in multiple spots in the formation. Drives on routes to leverage defenders into bad spots. May test a bit faster than he plays at this stage in his development. Noticeably improved quick-twitch explosiveness, particularly in close quarters, over course of high school career. More of a speed-builder than a burster in straight-line situations, which could affect separating ability against college DB's. High-production receiver with great consistency and a likely high floor and potential to develop into NFL Draft prospect.
