Can be described as a human highlight film. Complete player. Moved around to disguise him in offense. Plays both sides, inside and outside receiver. Natural catcher.

Snatches the ball on slants and gets upfield. Fluid when running routes off motion. Comes back to the ball. Good adjustments to the ball. Bends his knees and has good hip flexibility. Will jump and make a play over a defender. Natural running after catch. Has open field instincts and elusiveness. Gets to full speed in two strides. Makes the clutch catch in crunch time.
