His management abilities and intangibles, gained from main two high applications, are evident. Now about exhibiting he has pro-tailored bodily abilities.

Though he averaged 15.7 yards per catch, there are some considerations about his downfield velocity and lateral quickness for a man his dimension. He can put them to relaxation in Cell.
Trey Adams, OT, Washington
Adams ia one other large participant (6-8, 327 kilos) in relation to his place. Adams is making an attempt to push into the identical tier of USC’s Austin Jackson, Georgia’s Andrew Thomas and Iowa’s Tristan Wirfs as tackles standing out early within the draft course of. He may be clean in move safety and highly effective in run-blocking, however he has to indicate scouts he is agile sufficient to play on the left aspect.

The previous walk-on is a high-effort participant with good versatility in attending to the quarterback, and holds up nicely in opposition to the run. He has an opportunity to indicate scouts that he has been undersold as twitchy athlete.
Alton Robinson, EDGE, Syracuse
Robinson (6-4, 260 kilos) overcame some off-field points by pouring his coronary heart into changing into a productive, usually dominant pass-rusher for the Orange. His sacks did drop from 10 as a junior to solely 4 as a senior, however he elevated his playmaking in different areas. Robinson will hope to solidify himself as at the least a second-rounder.
Collin Johnson, WR, Texas
