This dude is massive. 6'4 - 215lbs
He has legit 4.4 speed.
He's one of those size/speed freaks.
A lot of the time those guys fringe guys, don't necessarily play out. Kevin White, Breshad Perriman, Miles Boykin like that. Kevin White didnt do a thing in college until he was like 23, Perriman was okay not a great target share or breakout age but went to UCF so not a power 5 school. Boykin also had a breakout age in the 18th percentile. If you're that big fast athletic and can only dominate opponents in college that are like 3 years younger than you, obviously you have a problem.
Terry went to Florida State, a Power 5 school. His breakout age, a bit older since he redshirted, was still in the 51st percentile so not terrible:
You can also point back to last year's class: Chase Claypool - 6'4 running a 4.42 40 - that might be right around what Terry runs (pro-day on March 29). Claypool's breakout age was older than Terrys. Terry brokeout as a redshirt freshman in 2018, 2019 was a big big year for him. And he did it just like Cam Akers, breaking out on that 2019 FSU offense that was terrible. Those two guys WERE their offense despite terrible o-line and QB play.
- Very strong frame, nfl ready
- no problem winning vs. man coverage
- narsty double-move on the outside
- his biggest problem is drops. sometimes it feels like he got bricks for hands
- people will overstate his lack of "hip fluidity, wiggle, lateral movement" but fuck that noise, for someone that's 6'4-215lbs he moves fine. How many dudes in the NFL with that frame, Kenny Golladay, Mike Evans you see moving like Tyreek Hill after the catch - it aint their game. he can certainly showed that he could move after the catch by the objective numbers. 611/1187 (51.4%) yards came from YAC in ’19. That YAC number was 13th in the NCAA despite ranking 78th in receptions (60). His broken tackle rate on receptions was at 10%, which is in the upper 33rd (1/3rd) percentile.
so terry was great in 2019 (60-1188-9).
gonna hit u with an absolutely insane stat:
- “Averaged 58 yards per reception on his nine touchdowns in 2019 and it was a combination of deep catches and massive gains after the catch.” (TDN)
people will look at his stats and ask wtf happened in 2020. why did he regress. He was looking like a borderline 1st round pick after his 2019 breakout.
- This is a player who needs context behind his 2020 numbers.
- He was playing on a really bad knee. I know, everyone says that shit. Everyone is hurt... But after the first four games of the year, it was in enough pain that he needed to have a procedure right in the middle of October,. which should tell you just about what you need to know about the pain level he was playing through.
- Through the first four games he averaged: 5.25 receptions - 69 yards, scoring once. He had the surgery, missed a game and went 0-0 and 2-14 and was done for the season. The per game numbers can be explained away pretty easily imo. This offense was also really bad. the adjusted completion % of the FSU QBs in 2020 ranked 110th out of 140 qualified
- After the 2019 year he had, I'm willing to completely wipe out the 2020 year from my radar bc of the injury. If he had to have it in week 4 - it was definitely having a huge impact for that first month for the season and pushing to come back onto the field afterwards he's obviously less than 100%. The coach said he barely practiced and had to be limited for most of the first month before undergoing the knee injury
He has about as much upside as you can find at this part of rookie drafts. According to the 20 rookie mocks we ran during BDGE Mock Week earlier this month, Terry is going off the board at 3.06, WR13 in superflex rookie drafts, behind guys like Kadarius Toney, Trey Sermon, Brevin Jordan and Seth Williams.
I have Terry ranked 22nd overall, so the 2.10, so a full 8 spots higher.
