Jordan Lasley has a good combination of size and speed. He is able to take the top off of a defense and averaged over 18.3 yards per reception. Lasley does a great job of creating separation at the top of his routes and tracking down the ball.

His ability change speeds and create separation with bursts at the top of his route. He is definitely a player who will run faster in pads than on the track.

He is also a savvy route runner. He does not have the most disciplined feet, but he is able to find space and understands defensive coverages.

He is also able to use his change of speeds to throw defenders off and create separation over the middle of the field.

This also leads to yards after the catch. Watch the play below as he runs all the way through the route, and already has a plan as to where he is going after the catch. This understanding and speed combine for big yards after the catch.


Jordan Lasley has a skinny frame for his height and it shows up in terms of contested catches. He is not physical off of the line of scrummage and he can be thrown off of track off of the ball and down the field.

On top of that, drops in general are a huge issue. Over the last two seasons, he dropped 21 passes. He can get open all that he wants, but if quarterbacks cannot trust him, he will not be on the field.

Lastly are some off of the field questions that included a suspension due to possession of alcohol and a fake ID in 2016 as well as a suspension in 2017 for a violation of team rules.
