Stats

Elevator pitch

Nabers is a dynamic playmaker whose play speed, quickness, and run-after-catch ability make him a home-run threat each time he touches the ball. However, he needs to enhance his releases and get a little bit stronger to win at the catch point consistently, projecting as an immediate high-level receiving option in the NFL.

Strengths

Very good burst and explosiveness…Vertical wheels to stretch the field…Dangerous YAC skills…Lower body twitch and burst to make sudden cuts at the top of patterns…Maintains his speed through the route without gearing down…Solid running instincts and vision to be dangerous any time he touches the ball…Physicality to finish through contact as a ballcarrier, breaking tackles…Natural ball tracking and judgement skills when football is in the air…Willing blocker.

Weaknesses

Needs to sharpen his route releases and stem footwork…Average in contested situations…Can make late adjustments with his body and allow the ball to get on top of him.
