Why bring him in if they're going to cut him in 2 weeks? Jersey sales?
Good size decent speed. Idk they bring scrubs in all the time to fill out the bottom end of the roster for training camp. Not really a big deal. Doubt they sell any jerseys.

Freddie mentioned in a recent interview they're looking for more speed. Good camp body to push some players in the WR/ST mix perhaps?

I think they will see what he can bring as RB/WR probably similar to what they wanted from Duke and maybe try to implement some of the stuff they had planned for him.

I'll admit that he isn't going to make the roster if they just want him as a pure WR. He just isn't as polished as the WR group we have.

I'd imagine he'd be a good return man.
He doesn't have the best hands. We tried that look a few times on the Buckeyes.

TBH, I thought he was going to have a much larger impact when he was moved to H-Back on the Bucks that season. With that said, he is still one of the most athletic players I ever saw in a scarlet and grey uniform.

His hands and instincts as a WR are what are hold him back. I just rewatched some of his highlights and he has a problem staying balanced and on his feet after making a reception.

Really if they can get him the ball easily with screens and pitches like a RB, he can make an impact. Maybe they will try to convert him to a 3rd down RB. Him picking up protections in the pocket will probably be the biggest hurdle for him to be an 3rd down RB.

The only place I can see him fitting in is as a partial Duke replacement. Where he gets alittle more work in the first half of the season when Hunt is out. Then slides to #3 RB or #6 WR depending on depth in the second half of the season.

This - line him up in the backfield catching HB screens or get creative with putting him in motion at WR is where he would excel but you need a play design to get him into open space but with the amount of weapons on this team already, I am puzzled as to why we would even bring him onboard. He really can't block and he doesn't possess the hands / feet to be a typical route running receiver.

My guess is they try him at KR/PR and general special teams. If he can show potential there as well as a scout team Lamar Jackson, then it is not impossible that he makes the team.

Unfortunately, he lacks receiver instincts and has not show the ability to contribute on special teams. My guess is he is cut and/or placed on the practice squad in two weeks.
