Power-5 Starter

Comparison

Sterling Shepard New York Giants

Not a taller receiver, but has bulked up and is built ready to play the slot our outside in some systems in college. Playmaker who has been a key weapon on a good team in high school. Has quick feet and good explosion out of his breaks. Has made plays downfield and shown the ability to make tough catches with good body control and hand-eye coordination. Has adequate straight line speed and shows some ability after the catch but is not necessarily a guy who will shake a lot of defenders after the catch. Physical, competitive player who blocks and makes hits on defense. Can still get faster in a straight line. Overall, a very skilled prospect who has good intangibles and has made clutch plays in big games. Should be an early impact guy in the slot but should not be viewed as only a slot as he has been effective as an outside receiver in high school. Projects as a playmaker at the high-major level.
