He gets a pretty good grade in every area and has elite potential (obviously not there yet or he'd have been a first rounder) in a couple, notably hands and route running.
Very well rounded with legit #1 potential, although he probably lacks the explosiveness in any one area to be a truly elite #1.
I thought he had much fewer question marks than any other receiver in the draft. Just also had less exclamation marks or things that really pop out at you.
