    Positive Observations:
    – Aggressive downfield blocker; unselfish
    – Good (not great) speed; No one seems to catch him!

    “Other” Observations:
    – Needs coaching on route running
    – Catches with body too much
    – Not quick-twitch nor hulking WR-type
    – More fast than quick; long-strider

    Summary: Seems like the typical UM wide receiver before current version. Not polished like Black, not the athlete like Peoples-Jones and not the mittens of Nico. I’d hope that with Gattis that there will be more explosive WR’s out there that UM could choose from but he’s better than some of the other WR’s I’ve seen (Devel Washington). I don’t think he’ll be top 200 player by end of next season.

      You might be right about him not being a top-200 guy, but I still like him as a prospect. He does have some things to work on, but there are some tools to work with here. I think he’s the type of guy who could really benefit from a more wide open offense where it might be a little easier to get the ball in his hands, because I think he’s a pretty good runner after the catch. I don’t think he’s a guy who would excel in some previous versions of Jim Harbaugh’s offense. So we’ll see a) if he commits and b) if the offense changes.
