Negatives- Shaun is a bit smaller on the bottom half and has room to grow and put more mass/muscle both in the lower and upper halves…He can be over powered by long-armed Receivers, also ones with stronger cores/upper bodies…Due to him reading the Quarterback’s eyes, he is manipulated at times…He relies on his range and closing speed when playing off-man and relies on those to make his plays.
