Projection

4-7 Round Day 3

Comparison

Laquon Treadwell Minnesota Vikings

Bigger body for a wide receiver. Thick and physically strong. Uses size and physicality to out-body defenders for 50-50 balls. Shows timing and ability to high-point the ball. Strong, natural hands and ability to catch the ball away from his body. Good route runner with fluid change of direction and understanding of how to create separation. Still can get straight line faster. Gets downfield, but will not blow by defensive backs and does not currently make tons of plays after the catch. Could also project to defense with his size and skill set, but mainly projects as a true outside receiver and one that can play at a high level in college and then on Sundays if he keeps polishing his game.

Athletic Background

2019: Played varsity as a sophomore and helped Fordson to a 9-2 record and Michigan Division I second-round playoff appearance.
