2021 Devy Prospect Previews: WRs Amon-Ra St. Brown (USC) and Isaiah McKoy (Kent State)
Devy Disclaimer: I only take a quick look at some game tape and review background data on each prospect – it’s a very preliminary look that I could change my mind on with deeper study a year later when these prospects do hit the college all-star bowl games and work the NFL Combine and Pro Days. I don’t have all the data, today, that I need/want for a comprehensive scouting and I’m not taking anywhere near a full amount of time to tape preview -- I’m giving a knee jerk scouting reaction from a basic intro to the player. The good news is…I’m better at this (scouting) than anyone in the world, so my quick eye test is better than the echo chamber’s/football media’s studies – so, I’m your best hope for an initial preview…but don’t write any of this in stone…it’s early with limited data and a whole season of info/tape/data to come on these guys.
WR Amon-Ra St. Brown (USC)
2019: 77-1.042-6 rec. (13g)
Preview Grade = B
Very solid WR prospect…nice speed/agility, good-to-great hands, professional way about his routes and concentration on catching passes. A legit NFL prospect, a future NFL starter talent…a nice #2 WR or a solid slot WR. He’s not a super-athlete, but good enough…his catching/routes skill bumps him up.
Reminds me of: Robert Woods.
WR Isaiah McKoy (Kent State)
2019: 56-872-8 rec. (11g)
Preview Grade = B-/C+
Big body WR with room to grow/thicken up. Very good feet/burst for his size. Led the MAC in TD catches in 2019. Enough size and speed to be a serious deep ball threat. Enough quickness/nimbleness to work bubble screens at his size. A lot of upside from here.
Reminds me of: Faster, better Darius Slayton.
