Isaiah Hodgins is becoming a draft favorite for many. With his size and length plus his twitchy style of play, he should be highly sought after once we hit Day 3 of this year’s NFL Draft.

Hodgins does a lot of things well. He wins consistently at the catch point. He has very strong hands and he can catch the ball in tight windows. His length allows him to address the ball away from his body and the defender. He also does a phenomenal job at getting the defender to bite on his double move.

While he has some really good traits that can be exciting, part of the reason he’s not talked about as a top-10 receiver in this class is because he doesn’t have the play speed you’d like to see. He doesn’t create natural separation and he has to rely on his double move or winning in contested catch situations.

While he has his flaws, he has plenty of ability to contribute to an offense like the Vikings. He could be used as a mismatch in the red zone or if they look to play the matchup against a smaller corner.
