- BProjectionRound 4
Strong Points: Height and length. Good athlete with change of direction and overall body control. Good flexibility in knees and upper body. Large receiving radius. Productive both long and short. Competes in traffic. High points the ball well. Very good in red zone -- 33 touchdowns the past two seasons. Separates on a consistent basis.
Weak Points: Receivers from this program have struggled to make the NFL leap. Originally enrolled at West Virginia, then transferred out after his freshman year to a junior college before returning for his junior year. Lacks top strength and isn't the most physical guy -- needs to add bulk. Fast but not a true speed guy.
The Way We See It: Sills had a strange career. A high school quarterback who wanted to play college QB but was converted to wide receiver. He left the program after his freshman year to play QB at the juco level before returning to the Mountaineers and settling in at wide receiver, eventually becoming a consistent performer and go-to weapon in the red zone. His 33 receiving TDs over the past two years led the nation. Sills has good, but not great traits. He knows how to use his height and length to win in most contested situations. He has a lean frame and must get stronger in order to compete at the NFL level. Has some trouble defeating the jam, getting re-routed by strong defensive backs. In recent years, receivers from this program have struggled at the NFL level, which will be a concern for some evaluators. Nonetheless, Sills' tape is strong. He's not a finished product, and needs more development, but he can contribute as a rookie.
