LA Chargers seventh-round receiver: Tamorrion Terry

A seventh-round receiver should be someone who has great physical skills but did not display the technical skill at the collegiate level, hence why they are so far down in the draft. The last thing to pick is someone with technical skill with below-average athleticism. The ceiling for that kind of prospect is much lower.

Tamorrion Terry is an athletic receiver that did not show as much at Florida State as teams would hope for in a receiver prospect. He certainly was not a bad receiver, but the Seminoles kept his role rather simple and did not ask him to expand his route tree or be much more than a vertical burner.

But man, is he a vertical burner.

Terry is a burner and if there is any quarterback in the league that could make the most of his speed it would be Justin Herbert. Right away he would be a better version of Jalen Guyton as a deep threat with better hands and if he could develop his route tree then he could really become a fun receiver to watch in this offense.

In 2019, Terry was clocked in at 23.4 MPH on a 91-yard touchdown reception. The fastest clocked sprint speed last season was 23.09 MPH, belonging to Raheem Mostert on an 80-yard rushing touchdown.

Terry does not have NFL speed, he has top-end NFL speed. The LA Chargers would be throwing a hail mary on Terry hoping that he can develop more as a receiver to really unlock something special.

If not, he is still a threat on go routes and could be a big addition as a special teams gunner.
