Injury history.

History. Four-star recruit out of Metairie, LA. Prepped at Archbishop Rummel, where he was also a State Champion long jumper. All-State as a senior, he participated in the Under Armour All-America Bowl.

Strengths. Decent height, but built well with thick lower half. Shut up the doubters about his athleticism at his pro day (logged 4.34 40, 41″ vert, 11′ broad). Great burst, especially when allowed free release off the LOS. Incredibly quick footwork, really nice release. Uses his hands really well, he’s aggressive. Already an established route runner. Excellent ball skills, not just for his size. A dog when the ball is in the air. Will get feisty while run blocking.

Weaknesses. Lacks elite length. Could have some issues against big physical corners. Although speed isn’t an issue, he’s no absolute blazer. More inexperienced than raw, only 1 year of production. Sometimes the foot quickness is just dancing, needs to learn to plant and explode up field.
