Pos: 
Nice-sized receiver with solid speed and next-level receiving skills. Fluidly releases off the line of scrimmage, uses his hands to separate from defenders and tracks the pass in the air. Displays terrific short-area quickness, fires into pass routes and nicely makes the reception on crossing patterns. Easily adjusts to the errant throw, uses his frame to shield away defenders and displays excellent focus and concentration. Displays good timing, looks the ball into his hands and snatches the pass out of the air. Consistently doubled by opponents as both the safety and cornerback keep continuous watch on him.
Neg: 
Unnecessarily secures the ball against his frame too often. Was not a big red-zone target at the small-school level.
Analysis: 
Wesley was a dominant receiver for Northern Colorado and went on to have a terrific week of practices at the Senior Bowl. He possesses the size, speed and overall football ability to develop into a fourth receiver at the next level.
