Pos: 
Three-year starter who flashes big-time ability on occasion. Athletic, fluid and plays with balance as well as body control. Gets vertical and contorts to pull the fastball from the air. Uses the sidelines well, extends his hands to catch the ball away from his frame and makes the reception in stride. Display solid hand-eye coordination and flashes big-play ability.
Neg: 
Does not come away with difficult receptions and drops too many contested passes. Struggles in battles with physical opponents. Doesn't do a good job of making the over-the-shoulder reception.
Analysis: 
Slayton teases scouts and displays big-time skill but has limited consistency. He has the size and speed to be a productive second receiver at the next level, but his streaky play will likely limit his playing time on Sundays.
