New Receiver Possibly

Adrian Madise
Height: 5-11
Weight: 215
Position: WR
College: Texas Christian


Positives: Has good body structure and development throughout his frame…Does a nice job of closing the cushion and creating space up field, using his burst to threaten the defense on deep routes…Has a sharp change of direction and explosive quickness… Gets separation in and out of his cuts…Will make the tough catches in the crowd and is quick to tuck the ball away and head upfield after the reception…Can adjust to the high and low tosses, tracking the ball properly in flight, doing a good job of snatching over his shoulders…Watches the ball in and extends his hands to pluck the ball…Makes a good effort to run after the catch…Goes all out when asked to serve as a blocker or decoy.
Negatives: Needs to use his hands better to get a better release off the line, as he tends to leave his chest too exposed to defeat press coverage…Has a drop step in his release and shows a poor stance at the line, lacking good body lean to get into his routes suddenly… Despite his speed, he is not elusive with the ball…Jumps well for the ball, but misses some, as his timing appears to be off…Will body catch some…Give good effort as a blocker, but he is more of a waist-bender who drops his head upon contact…Takes a false step before accelerating…Tends to lose his confidence after dropping a pass…Needs route refinement, as he gets too upright in his stance.
