Crisp in and out of breaks. Great acceleration and explosiveness. Very effective on out routes versus soft coverage. Natural feel for finding space in the middle of the field. Standout weapon on jump balls in the red zone using body positioning and timing. Effective on screen passes from the outside and slot. Plus elusiveness with the ball in his hands.
