Intriguing is the best label I can put on him, as passing game opportunities are extremely limited in that offense. What's shown is promising: he has some finesse to his routes, and is really excellent at winning contested throws. He can get separation deep and will make back-shoulder catches all day. Physically he's NFL sized all the way, and carries the weight like a tall running back without being sluggish.
He would've risen as a prospect after the season, but with his ACL injury against Georgia I'd bump him down to the fifth or sixth round as a 2016 layaway player.
+ When he gets the chances, shows NFL talent on long throws and 50/50 situations
- Reading coverages may be a struggle, coming from an option offense that caught secondaries with their pants down
