Tamorrion Terry Breakdown
New coach Mike Norvell inherits a receiver with great potential, and one who is also growing as an NFL prospect. Tamorrion Terry has great raw ability, and he’s made great strides in the technical side of his game. His ability to blend the two will determine how high he goes in next year’s draft.
Terry was given the nickname “Scary Terry”, and he embraces it by displaying his speed downfield. He doesn’t run the sharpest routes, but he has the speed to run away from any defender. He claims to stare at his defenders, reading what he sees in their eyes before the snap, which could also add to his “Scary Terry” demeanor.
One thing he can work on is his footwork and his cuts on his routes to create more separation from his defender. For now, he’s relying on his raw abilities to get open, but adding those details to his game will only make him a greater threat. Even though he doesn’t create a ton of separation, he’s so determined to go get the ball that it helps him win in tight spaces. His ability to be physical with his defender at the catch point is elite, and he’s able to shield his man with his body to gain the advantage going up for the ball.
Another thing he needs to work on is his physicality at the line of scrimmage. Any lesser talented defender that want to be physical with him find success, and that tends to limit his production. His success tends to come mostly from deep and sideline routes, so adding more short to intermediate route success to his arsenal makes him more dangerous.
Scary Terry’s an athletic deep threat with a lot of explosiveness to his game. None of his concerns are necessarily extremely concerning, but there are still things he can work on with his game. Florida State’s passing game needs work, but they have a great player that can help get things going if he can win more consistently.
