Draft Profile & Scouting Report

  • Above average vision and tends to gravitate to daylight well but does lacks vision inside running between the tackles

  • Above average to potential homerun speed 4.42 (88th PCTL) 40ty yard dash; gets to top speed in only a couple steps

  • Above average quickness and acceleration; fast out of the gate and does not tend to lose speed with cuts

  • Flashes special ability as a receiver with very natural hands and PLUS route running ability; instant asset to the receiving game

  • Good production as a receiver with 27 catches on 30 targets for 274 yds and 4 TDs with no drops in 2021

  • Excellent ball security with no fumbles in 2021 and only 1 fumble in 2020

  • EXCELLENT draft capital at (2; 63) to BUF

  • Exceptional landing spot for immediate/early production; likely is a Day 1 starter on 3rd down with upside to take over a more developed role as the year progresses

  • A little on the thin side at 5’ 11”, 199 lbs

  • Profiles as a 3rd-down change-of-pace running back restricted to running outside the tackles

  • Not a very physical running back and does not break tackles; only 25 missed tackles forced on 113 attempts

  • Does not flash the special open filled elusiveness that you would expect; relies more on top-end speed, more of a 1-speed runner

  • Wasn’t asked to do much in pass protection for a reason

  • Ankle injury and surgery in 2019 causing him to miss the sugar bowl; shoulder & hand injuries in 2021 caused him to miss time
