Strengths

Top-tier height and catch radius. Great body control. Very effective high-pointing the ball. Plus leaping ability. Above-the-rim weapon in scoring territory. Presents a large target on in-breaking routes. Huge hands to secure the ball. Tracks the ball very well over the shoulder. Glides to haul in downfield throws. Quality long speed and gallops with a clean runway. Good footwork/release for a big-bodied wideout. Quick cutting inside for slants at his size. Made several highlight-reel grabs in his career. Gets his feet down on the boundary. Has some shake after the catch. Has experience playing inside. Possesses some deceptiveness running vertical routes from the slot. Played well in big games (two touchdowns versus Texas in 2020). Former basketball player. Put on significant weight following the 2020 season.

 

Weaknesses

Thin overall frame. Very basic route tree. Has trouble dealing with physical coverage. Struggles to beat press coverage. Will take his eyes off the ball for a focus drop. Not always on the same page with his quarterback. Benefitted from open space in the Big 12. Has some durability concerns and had 2020 season end due to a knee injury.

Conclusion

Overall, Vasher is a lean, athletic wide receiver with a huge catch radius and impressive body control to be a threat downfield and in the red zone. He needs to learn to play with more physicality, but the flashes shown are enough to draw consideration late on Day 2.
