Pos: 
Explosive vertical receiver with a developing game. Quickly releases off the line of scrimmage, immediately gets to top speed and shows the ability to beat defenders in a foot race. Comes back into the clearing and follows his quarterback across the field, nicely adjusts to the errant throw and gets vertical to come away with the difficult catch. Displays strong hands with the ability to snatch the ball from the air. Plays to his 40 time and shows a great burst of speed. Quickly turns upfield and works to pick up yardage after the catch. Competes to come away with the throw, lays out and exposes himself to the big hit in order to make the reception.
Neg: 
Not a stout receiver, struggles in battles and needs room to work. Lazily gets into routes and floats out of breaks. Body-catches too much and secures the ball against his frame.
Analysis: 
Snelson is a top athlete who flashed skill on the field but was a bit streaky last year. He must get stronger and improve his route running, but he has the underlying speed to play at the next level. Snelson would've benefitted from another year on the college field and may struggle to make an active roster this fall.
