Strengths, weaknesses and NFL role
Where he wins: Technical Savvy
JSN processes the game like it's in slow motion. His ability to break off routes without warning and catch the ball as he's changing directions is unmatched in the class.
What's his role? Slot
JSN ran 83.0% of his routes from the slot in his career, where he proved to be a sure-handed receiver who possessed the short-area speed to separate from defenders and consistently move the chains.
What he can improve: ??
It's not to say there's nowhere JSN can improve, but rather that the most deficient areas of his skill sett all revolve around purely physical tools.
