2021 NFL Draft Scouting Report: WR Tamorrion Terry

Florida State wide receiver Tamorrion Terry quickly made an impact for the Seminoles offense and was Florida State’s leading receiver in 2018 and 2019 following a redshirt year in 2017. Whether it was getting behind the secondary or catching a quick pass in-stride and taking it to the house, he frequently made explosive plays. The challenging part of Terry’s evaluation is that his inconsistency as a route-runner and at the catch point mar those high-level plays. He has not proven to be able to run a diverse route tree and he's more of a linear route-runner that isn’t sudden in and out of breaks. He struggles to consistently catch the football and his ball skills down the field are hit or miss. His tape is a mixed bag and like so many talented Seminoles in recent years, the lack of coaching and development prohibited him from illustrating more consistency on the field. For a team that is looking for a burner with size that can win down the field, Terry is an ideal target on Day 3, but he is still very much a work in progress and is far from a complete receiver at this point. 

Ideal Role: Developmental outside receiver.

Scheme Fit: Air Coryell.

Games watched: Boise State (2019), Wake Forest (2019), Boston College (2019) Florida (2019), Georgia Tech (2020), Notre Dame (2020) 

Best Game Studied: Boston College (2019)  

Worst Game Studied: Wake Forest (2019) 

Route Running: Because Terry generates so much vertical push as a route-runner, corners frequently play off and Terry does well to take advantage of the cushion where he can snap off routes and work back to the football. Routes are often rounded and lack deception. He’s best on the vertical plane and he lacks suddenness in and out of breaks. 

Hands: Terry is not a sure-handed receiver and he has his share of struggles with drops. Some of those drops are due to concentration but others are because he doesn’t consistently get his hands properly aligned to greet the football. He makes his share of circus grabs, but there is variance to the consistency in which he catches the football that his team will have to deal with. 

Separation: Terry has the speed to get behind the secondary and get open down the field and the frequent cushion he is afforded helps him create separation. With that said, NFL corners will surely be more aggressive when guarding him and put more stress on Terry to run more detailed, deceptive, and crisp routes. 

Release Package: Terry features the play strength needed to power through contact early in routes. He is aggressive to stack corners and get on top of them quickly. There is a layer of variance and tempo that is missing. 

Run After Catch: Terry has made his share of explosive plays, many of which include massive chunks gained after the catch. His long strides quickly eat up turf and he breaks away from defenders. He isn’t an ideal for manufactured touches and then creating for himself, but if he has a step on a 9 route or slant, he’s gone. 

Ball Skills: Terry has a massive wingspan and he’s shown he can make catches through contact in contested situations. With that said, there are some lapses in tracking and he isn’t immune to misplaying the ball in the air. There are times where he is too patient at the catch point and I was to see more of an assertive, alpha mentality. 

Football IQ: Like many physically gifted Seminole players in recent years, Terry was poorly coached and wasn’t afforded the opportunity to truly reach his ceiling. He needs technical work as a route-runner and at the catch point, and from watching his tape, it’s just apparent that he wasn’t rigidly repped in practice to maximize his talent. 

Versatility: Terry is an outside receiver that wins down the field. He’s best on the vertical plane and has limited experience from the slot. In 2018 and 2019, he aligned almost exclusively from the right side of the formation but got chances to move around more in 2020. 

Competitive Toughness: I want to see more assertiveness at the catch point and for him to play to his size more consistently at the catch point. He has room to fill out his frame and add more functional strength. He’s aggressive early in routes, but that same demeanor doesn’t show up in all aspects of his game with consistency. 

Big-Play Ability: Terry averaged 18.8 yards per reception across his 118 career catches. For his nine touchdown catches in 2019, Terry averaged 58 yards per reception. He holds the FSU school record with five touchdowns of 70 yards or greater.
