Matt Waldman’s RSP Boiler examines two hard breaks from Tylan Wallace’s performance against Texas that reveal learning opportunities for this highly talented NFL Draft prospect.
One of my favorite prospects that I’ve seen this summer, Oklahoma State wide receiver Tylan Wallace is a fearless, physical wide receiver with speed and quickness. On the field, he possesses the kind of attitude that I love from wide receivers.
The next episode of the RSP Boiler Room will highlight a play that sets Wallace apart from many of his peers. This episode is more critical of Wallace’s route running.
Skilled at finding openings in zone coverage and attacking them fearlessly, Wallace’s greatest opportunity for improvement as he heads into his junior year, are his routes against tight, man coverage. Specifically, Wallace must develop more precise footwork and knee bend with his hard breaks.
Wallace has a massive output against Texas last December, earning 10 catches for 222 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He split the defense, ran past it, and even leaped over it.
However, when asked to beat it one-on-one and earn separation back to the quarterback, Wallace struggled to make good on both targets of this type. Learn why below…
When Wallace can shore up this part of his game, he has a bright future on Sundays.
