On the Hoof: Christian also has a very muscular build and hands like a peach basket. He is a bigger version of Georgia's Orson Charles.
Needs Improvement: Has a tendency to round off routes, which allows the linebackers to jump the pass. He also needs to improve flexibility a bit because he is a tad stiff which causes his movements to be a little mechanical.
Most Impressive: He will cause some mismatch problems because he has good speed, and is strong enough to absorb and bounce off man coverage. Christian also does a nice job of catching the ball with his hands and away from his body. He is not afraid to catch the ball over the middle and he has excellent speed.
Conclusion: His body size allows him to project at three positions at the next level. He could also possibly play inside linebacker or weakside defensive end at the next level. It is really going to be hard for a college to keep him off the field because of his size and strength. Christian has the perfect body and speed to excel on special teams. He has the potential to be a three-year starter.
