give me some reasons why this kid wont make it in the nfl.
it just seems like the perfect match for the texans in rd1.
Ok, I will give it a shot.
He is very undersized. He is only 5'9 which is tiny for an NFL receiver. As a result he may have injury concerns. He will have to play the slot and those are the places WRs get and take the biggest hits. He may take a hard shot or two and it may knock him out for a few games. He is very thin. He is not very strong and unable to fight off the stronger ILBs and safetys. He likely will not be as good as he was in college. In college he routinely played against inferior opponents where a quick juke can lead to big time yards. In the NFL where the defenders are bigger, stronger, and faster it won't be as easy for him to do that.
