Devin has good size, strength and speed for his position.
He has strong hands and shows sharp quickness in and out of his
breaks. He is very fluid runner and has deceiving speed.
We used to call this type of speed "sneaky fast" because if
the CB turns his head and peaks in to the QB, Devin will blow
right by him and surprise the DBís with a deep catch. Devin
has potential to be a #2 WR in the NFL and with a
little hard work, just might make it as a #1.
Devinís biggest weakness is his route running. He has to
learn to be more precise with his cuts. He is quick out of
his cut, but then looks for the ball and slows himself down.
This allows the DBís to catch up to him and defend the
ball. He needs to understand what will be required of him
mentally and physically at the next level to succeed.
Talent Board Round 4
Devin lacks confidence at this point of his career. He
acts like he is overwhelmed at times. He has excellent
athletic talent, but the mental portion of the game is
causing him all sorts of problems because of his lack of
confidence. He looks like he's a good kid and as soon as
he starts to play at the next level and gain some confidence,
he will improve quickly. I like this kid's potential and his
talent and I just feel that if you take him in the second
day of the draft, you will have a good developmental WR.
This is the type of kid that could turn into a big time
player in the near future -- if not, he is a good enough WR
to give your team help as a 3rd or 4th
WR for the time being. He needs time, confidence and some
good coaching. He has to realize how important it is for
him to run precise routes to be successful. He is a bit of
a sleeper right now coming out of a big program with a lot
of other players who were picked in the first round in past
drafts and projected in the first in this draft. I just think he needs to understand
that he has as much talent as any one of those players.
When he does, he could be a hell of a player.
