247 Rank:  National - 1004 / WR - 132  / LA – 45

Commitment – Undecided

Name/Location/Date/Time of film for evaluation – Kody Finley - Soph Highlights - Hudl - 4/24/2020 - 4m 56sec

Physical Attributes – Kody is a tall, long levered, fluid athlete.  A possession WR who is a long strider. He is a good athlete for size and length.  Not overly explosive or dynamic as Kody uses his ability to create some separation and his length and ability to win jump balls to be productive.  

Position Specific Skills – Kody shows solid initial quickness on his get off.  He is a long strider and has deceptive speed for his length but not elite speed.  He can be a deep/red zone threat with his length and ability to go up for the ball and adjust to the ball in the air.  He has good hands.  He must excel in using his big body to block and must work on his route tree.  He shows some wiggle after the catch with the ability to make guys miss.  Would like to see more explosive movements before and after the catch. 

Overall – Kody has a good, long body and fluidity.  As he matures physically he can get bigger, stronger and faster.  He must work his craft and learn to explode and drop weight in and out of cuts.  The potential is there for Kody to become a force with his smooth natural skills.  Hard work and mother nature will allow him to reach his full potential in the years to come.
