Xavier Worthy's Speed Could Add Another Weapon in the Miami Passing Attack

Strengths:

- His unmatched speed allows him to get up on DBs allowing him to break his routes for big separation or run right by them to get open deep.

- While not a technician, his speed and shiftiness make him a good route runner; similar to Tyreek Hill.

- Plays a lot tougher than his size may suggest. He is not afraid to put his head down and fight for yards

- Shifty in space and is rarely tackled by the first defender

- Great vision to find openings in the screen game and great balance on the sidelines on screens.

- Hands improved quite a bit this season.

- He has an elite mentality. He is a dog. He always wants the ball and is ultra competitive.

Weaknesses:

- His frame may cause issues against bigger press corners if he plays on the outside

- Lacks physicality in most aspects of his game.

- Had some drops through his career, but as I said, he improved in 2023.

- Will fumble on occasion

- He is a willing run blocker at times, but he will never be a "good" run blocker.
