With that said, Kary did struggle against some of the better receivers in 2019 (DeVonta Smith, Van Jefferson, Kyle Pitts). Despite the lack of size, he shows a feisty play style with a high motor and nose for the ball. Ultimately, Vincent will be a Swiss Army knife for some lucky defensive coordinator and should come off the board early.
