Strengths: On the field, he has excellent speed that makes him have a unique skill set unknown other from the FCS level. He is a versatile playmaker that was not playing at the receiver position but also used as a running back, a passer, and a return specialist. With the ball is in hands, he poises a significant threat to the defense with his tremendous elusiveness . His escapability is insane, who can make defenders miss in the tightest windows of space because of his shifty moves. He is productive from the slot or at the outside receiver position. His hands are very reliable, and he able to complete the most difficult catches in an acrobatic style. He runs a well-polished route with fantastic footwork.
Weaknesses: He is another one of those FCS Small school players who embedded with not playing against a high level of competition. At the level, it is very physical and will his body be able to hold up against the physicality of the NFL defenders. How will he adapt against the press coverage and speed of the defensive backs will test his experience. May have too much shaking and baking with his moves, which will put him in unfortunate predicaments
