Drake London Scouting Report

"My ball" receiver with length, physicality and ball skills. Downside is that he's not especially fast and doesn't ever throw in the towel, which could lead to regular nagging injuries."

 

Strengths:

A building of a WR with good foot quickness. Can make spectacular "my ball" catches with his length, physicality and ball skills. A bully at the top of his route. Runs like an athletic TE after the catch and often just refuses to go down.


Flashes ability to be a Mortal Kombat finisher of a blocker. Clutch. Greatly improved his route running and short area quickness since his freshman year.

 

Weaknesses:

Lacks explosion and downfield speed. Inconsistent hands catcher. Route running still a work in progress. Shows the wear and tear of his physical style and broke his ankle this past season.

 

Overall:

London is an especially physical receiver with size and an accompanying attacking style. He's a clutch hands receiver that is fearless in traffic, but often gets his bell rung and doesn't always know when to throw in the towel on a play.


His foot quickness for his size is special and he's made strides as a route runner in 3 seasons. While he's a 50/50 winner generally he's not the most reliable hands guy and has more focus and in traffic drops than you'd like. Relishes blocking and consistently takes his assignment out.
