Matt Waldman’s Rookie Scouting Portfolio examines the boundary masterwork of Alabama wide receiver Jaylen Waddle.
Micro movements aren’t just for running backs. The Crimson Blur, Jaylen Waddle demonstrates this concept as a wide receiver at the boundary of the end zone after stair-stepping an out pattern from the slot as part of a fantastic performance against Auburn.
Waddle didn’t have an extraordinary statistical campaign in 2019, but there are moments on tape that reveal a player with NFL starter potential. What you’ll see below is a wide receiver whose footwork at the boundary is an expression of anticipation, spacial awareness, and mobility in tight quarters.
When a player can execute productive micro-movements, it’s often the difference between good and great play. The more micro-movements in his game, the greater that likelihood of greatness becomes.
