Strengths 

Rice is an athletic receiver as he has solid lateral agility speed, burst, and can be elusive. He is more of a physical receiver and it is showcased through his play strength. He has a smooth release and foot quickness. Can create separation from defenders along with having strong body control. Rice has a solid catch radius and can get to the high point. Rice is a very competitive player and it shows with how he runs after making a catch, plays with a lot of toughness/aggression, and with the way he blocks.

Weaknessess

Rice does not get into the Deep Speed. He does not have a versatile route tree as he typically runs vertical routes and does not have the best timing of his routes. Rice does not have the best hands as he has made some bad drops. He struggles when recognizing press coverage. Durability could become an issue as he had constant foot issues through his last season at SMU.
