Strengths

Tremendous size and catch radius. Great natural receiving skills. Soft hands and snatches the ball out of the air. Very good operating on the boundary. Gets his feet down on the sideline. High points passes at a high level. Excellent balance and body control. Didn’t test fast but can stack cornerbacks and get vertical. Tracks the ball well downfield. Can win with an inside release and size on slants and in-breaking routes. Impressive feet around the line of scrimmage for his size. Quick coming to a stop mid route. Has spectacular catches on the highlight reel. Finds holes along the sideline against zone coverage. Good ability to make people miss at his size. Very strong with the ball in his hands. Exceptional run blocker.

 

Weaknesses

Route tree is mostly vertical. Would have liked to see him used more on digs and posts. Can struggle to get off physical press coverage. Not fearless when going across the middle.

Conclusion

Overall, Gandy-Golden is a big-bodied perimeter target that can dominate outside the numbers with size, natural athleticism, and ball skills. If he can expand his route tree some and learn to win with strength against press coverage, Gandy-Golden could develop into a No. 1 receiver.
