Biography: Three-year starter who finished with 52/793/4 as a senior after putting up junior totals of 39/704/6.
Positives: "Consistent receiver who's shown the ability to make big plays from the line of scrimmage. Fluid releasing off the line, comes back to the ball out of breaks and catches the ball with his hands consistently. Nicely makes the reception in stride, plays with good body control, and shows a burst of speed running after the reception. Uses the sidelines well, finds the open spot in the defense, and shows the ability to make very acrobatic receptions."
Negatives: Does not get results blocking. Unnecessarily leaves his feet to make the reception. Loses focus/concentration and will drop some catchable throws.
Analysis: Phillips has been consistently productive throughout his college career but never took his game to the next level. Has the measurables to be a fifth receiver in the NFL but must elevate every aspect of his game.
