—More of an athlete than a polished player; relies on athleticism rather than nuances to win.
—Banged up throughout his career; two surgeries (labrum, toe) after 2018 season and a 2020 core muscle surgery.
—Limited route tree; at his best on jet sweeps and pop passes.
—Not great against press coverage; struggles when a defender is in his face at the line.
—Has taken a pounding at Colorado due to high number of touches and punishing running style.
Shenault is a plug-and-play offensive weapon, but he needs time to develop as a true wide receiver. To accomplish that, he must stay healthy. He's a bit of a boom-or-bust prospect due to injury history and his limited position-specific tools, but he has enormous long-term upside. His offensive coordinator should be scheming him touches early in his rookie season.
