After the Catch (4/10)

Although Fehoko is a very athletic receiver, he is underwhelming when it comes to producing after the catch. He often just tries to fall over to grab a couple of extra yards rather than making a move in open space and getting past defenders.

Fluidity (6.25/10)

Fehoko is pretty average when it comes to fluidity. His athleticism is good, allowing him to look fluid with room in front of him, but near a defender, he often stiffens and pushes forward while falling to grab extra yards.

Route Running/Separation (8.25/10)

Fehoko’s route running is good. He does a good job of not getting knocked off of his routes and making himself available if a play breaks down. However, Fehoko could become more agile to improve his route running.

Hands (6.5/10)

Fehoko has decent hands. He can stretch to make difficult catches and make up for a quarterback’s poor play. However, he has also dropped many passes throughout his collegiate career.

Contested Catch (8.75/10)

The contested catch is one of the strongest parts of Fehoko’s game. In one-on-one contested-catch scenarios, Fehoko is usually able to make the play.

Release (6.5/10)

Fehoko’s release is average, but he possesses good footwork. He is able to beat defenders using a combination of his speed and footwork.

Strength (7.5/10)

Fehoko is a strong receiver. He completed 16 bench press reps during Stanford’s pro day.

Blocking (2.5/5)

At Stanford, Fehoko was not assigned very much blocking duty but is a strong enough receiver to be able to block, when needed, in the NFL.

Injury (4/5)

Although he suffered a knee injury to end the 2019 season, Fehoko was persistent and came back stronger in 2020. He showed little signs of rust after the injury.

Player Summary

Fehoko could be an interesting option for teams looking for an athletic receiver who can make some contested catches in the later rounds. Teams would be taking a gamble on Fehoko’s upside, but there is a lot of untapped potential due to his athleticism that teams could look for after drafting him.
