Team Fit


He is a big-bodied receiver with a muscular frame and excellent play strength. He possesses very good overall athleticism consistently showcasing elite lateral agility and plus short area quickness in small spaces. When his hands get involved on a release he can escape from press without any hiccups. He is a long strider with good build-up speed who understands spacing well and can use his vertical threat to keep defenders honest when lowering his hips to break in on intermediate routes. He has the ability to snap in and out of his breaks with good body control often creating separation and clean throwing windows. He is an outstanding downfield threat with an impressive jump ball ability. He continuously attacks the ball at its highest point and has strong hands away from his frame displaying a large catch radius. He has an impressive understanding of timing and leverage regularly breaking to the ball at that last moment and keeping his frame in between the ball and defender to decrease the chance of deflections. He tracks the ball extremely well in each area of the field and can pluck high velocity throws out of the air twisting his body to make tough catches seem routine. His aggressive play style and physicality are displayed in the blocking game where he looks to dominate opponents taking them out of the play.


His release needs work. He utilizes and awkward stance that puts a larger percent of his body weight on his plant leg creating an off balanced structure. He is often delayed off the snap and will stutter step in order to drive forward delaying his release. He will infrequently use his hands to beat press coverage often failing to keep his chest plate clean in the contact window often leading to an altered path in his stem. He will frequently take wide angles giving leverage to the defender in press relying on his burst to win the edge while he gets worked off his line. Relies heavily on hesitation moves and struggles to win with his quickness alone. He needs to learn how to use his hands to generate separation within the contact window on short breaking routes to win in the short areas of the field. He will often fail to work his entire frame into a break and won't recover to get his QB a full body to target. Won't play through the whistle and can give up on certain routes.

Big Picture

Harry will need to learn better technique to create a smooth release off the line and better defeat press coverage. He understands leverage and utilizes a good ability to gain separation with his route running ability and size. He will be a highly valued deep threat and red-zone target at the next level. He will require some time to develop at the next level and refine specific parts of his game, but he has dominant traits and the talent to succeed.
