At 5’9”, 187, Devon Wylie evidently has slot receiver size. He is small enough to weave through linebackers across the field, however he is very undersized.
At the Scouting Combine, Wylie ran the 40-yard dash in 4.39 seconds. He is light on his feet, and can outrun defenders and gunners in open space.
Release Off The Line Of Scrimmage
Wylie is occasionally slow off of the LOS, and can struggle to rack up speed. He needs to work on release.
While Wylie is a very raw prospect, his routes are decent and he produces. In 2012, he caught for over 700 yards.
Since the former Fresno State Bulldog is a return specialist, strong hand-eye coordination is nothing short of a must. Wylie has fantastic coordination and solid hands.
Wylie was not a big blocker in college. When on the field, Wylie was primarily a potential ballcarrier.
The wideout suffered a major foot injury in 2010, but other than that he is a fantastic player overall. He is an electrifying returner, and whenever he receives the ball fans rise to their feet in hopes to witness Wylie take it to the house.
Overall Rating: 8.0
