Gabe Brooks National Scouting Analyst


Erik Ezukanma Miami Dolphins

Good height and length with lean, athletic frame. Measured 6-1 or a shade taller several times, along with a large wingspan. Frame can hold more mass as needed.

Three-sport participation at varsity level. Skilled basketball player who's gradually developed finishing ability in the open floor. Noticeably improved hoops athleticism in junior season. Posted respectable 200-meter and long jump numbers as a sophomore and junior. Member of two Texas 5A top five relays (4x100, 4x200).

Plays even above listed size in contested situations and after the catch. Height, length, and vertical explosion foster ball-winning and red-zone danger.

Wiry strong with good run-after-catch strength. Displays excellent body control and core strength that shine in the air and via contact balance. Fluid mover whose movement patterns aid that balance.

Shows great timing and concentration skills, whether on contested throws or tracking deep balls. Particularly dangerous coming back to the ball, whether by design or on underthrown passes. Displays helpful bailout ability for his quarterback.

Strong production in sophomore and junior seasons has continued through first half of senior campaign. Shows short-to-intermediate consistency and big-play juice.

Initial get-off and early acceleration look improved as a senior, helping in getting on top of corners quickly. Plays with an unorthodox gait that coincidentally helps in run-after-catch effectiveness, but can tighten movement patterns to maximize suddenness; that would increase route-running efficiency and general explosiveness. Good frame but a bit narrow through the core, so will need to add mass.

Combination of physical tools, functional athleticism, three-sport athletic profile, and on-field context make for simultaneously high-floor wideout with promising developmental potential. Projects as a multi-year high-major starter who could ultimately progress to a candidate for the top half of the NFL Draft.
