In a draft class loaded with wide receiver talent, Tamorrion Terry is flying under the radar. However, Terry’s skillset and physicality make him an intriguing prospect who can make an impact in year 1. 

The star Florida State receiver broke out in his freshman season amassing 744 yards and 8 touchdowns. The production was more than impressive considering his limited snaps as a freshman receiver. But his sophomore season is where he cemented himself as one of the top receivers in the country. Accounting for over 34% of the Seminoles passing offense, amassing 1,188 receiving yards and 9 touchdowns.

His shortcomings in terms of production can be largely put on poor quarterback play. FSU quarterback James Blackman has been abysmal throughout Terry’s FSU career. Blackman’s inaccuracy and interceptions limited Terry during his sophomore season and still produced some of the best numbers in the country.

Terry’s 2020 season is what really hurt his draft stock and is why scouts aren’t so high on him. Dealing with an injury early in the year limited his capability to make big plays we were so used to seeing. He played 6 games before opting out of the season. The entire Florida State team played poorly in 2020 including Terry who finished the shortened season with 239 yards on 23 catches. 

The 6-foot-4 210-pound junior out of FSU possesses elite size for the position. A tremendous catch radius and speed draw comparisons to AJ Green coming out of college. His ability to go over the top of opposing defenders is second to none in the draft class. Primarily a downfield threat who makes big plays deep he has legit top speed. While lacking a nuanced route tree, he can create separation with a deceptive change of direction.

Scouts want to pigeon-hole him into a vertical receiver only, but Terry’s ability to create yards after the catch is truly special for a player his size. He routinely had screen plays drawn up for him to make defenders miss. His breakaway speed allows him to take those short passes and slants to the house.

His route-running is something that can be worked on if he can sink his hips more, but his quickness in and out of breaks can help. Tamorrion Terry’s 2020 campaign has dropped his stock, but that means he will be a steal in the later rounds.
