KD Cannon-WR-Baylor
Size: 6’0 180lbs

KD Cannon

Strengths:

  • Athletic
  • Fast
  • Ball tracking
  • Decent hands despite being a ‘body-catcher’

Analysis: Watching KD Cannon on tape, he is a one-trick pony. Let it rip, and let him run underneath it. He is extremely athletic with deep-play speed. Cannon is a smooth, long strider who can eat up cushions and go get it on vertical routes. It is difficult to overthrow him. Looks to stack cornerbacks on his hip when he has desired positioning on post routes. Plus ball tracking. Adjusts his path to the flight of the ball and can track it over his shoulder. Typically a body catcher, but flashes ability to snatch throws well outside of his frame.

Weaknesses:

  • Slim frame
  • Too high coming off snap
  • Body-catcher
  • Limited route tree

Analysis: KD Cannon’s slim frame lacks route strength. Pad level way too high into breaks for comeback routes causing him to skid to a stop.┬áBody catcher who struggled with contested catches. Finished 2016 with nine drops. Waits on throws rather than snatching at the high point. Baylor offense prevented defenses from physically challenging his release. Ran a route stick with good stops, gos and stop-and-gos.

Final Take: You know what you are getting with KD Cannon—a WR who can run two patterns consistently (a vertical and a stop). He isn’t going to ‘wow’ you consistently, but you can have him run and chuck it deep.

Draft Projection: Round 5-7
