Player Summary:

Played RB for the INND offense in the previous three years before switching over to WR for the 2023 season. He primarily plays the slot position in the offense; his secondary position is X which is indicative of him being a versatile WR. He is below the NFL average in height for a slot WR, and has a short stocky muscular frame. Makes up for it with blazing, homerun speed with the ability to take the top off the defensive backfield coverage. Creates opportunities for a defender to miss tackles by his agile ability which is solid. He has average route-running capabilities, not an incredibly technical route runner, more of creating space in the open with his speed providing issues in defensive coverage, especially in mismatch situations, as well as zone. Has a possibility of leading to huge downfield gains. Decent blocker especially downfield able to position his body mirroring the defender with decent extension and hand placement enough to slow him down to not able to effectuate the play early in development. Not used as often in assigned run plays by the INND offense. Displays average pass-catching capabilities and does proper mechanics to receive the ball which contains solid ball spotting in a timely manner and hand-eye coordination.

Scheme Fit:

Spread, Pro-set, RPO

Power Statement:

Homerun speed with not as much shiftiness to assist his height proportion. Room for improvement for development of WR technique and skills.
