BIO: Collegiate track and field sprint champion who led the team in receiving as a senior posting 60/1,006/6. Suspended the first three games of his junior campaign after violating team rules and finished the year with only 18/278/1.
POSITIVES: Explosive pass catcher who is an outstanding athlete. Uses his frame to shield away opponents, extends then makes the reception away from his frame. Gets vertical and adjusts to snatch the ball out of the air. Plays with body control and effectively positions himself against opponents to make the reception. Comes back to the ball and on the same page as his quarterback. Makes a lot of acrobatic receptions.
NEGATIVES: Not quick releasing off the line and does not move laterally with great speed. Marginal strength blocking downfield.
ANALYSIS: Coming off a breakout senior campaign, West has positioned himself for consideration in the late rounds. Still rough around the edges and a player who will need repetition to refine his overall game, the arrow is pointing up, as he offers plenty of upside potential.
