Pos: 
Large, reliable possession receiver with limited speed. Extends his hands to offer the quarterback a target, displays focus and concentration and consistently makes the reception away from his frame. Makes the difficult catch with defenders draped on him, looks the pass into his hands and competes to come away with the ball. Make some incredible fingertip receptions on occasion. Plays faster than his 40 time, nicely adjusts to the errant throw and plays with good body control. Uses the sidelines well and plays big football.
Neg: 
Lacks a quick release off the line of scrimmage and displays limited burst. Had a significant shoulder injury that sidelined him in 2017.
Analysis: 
Butler was graded as draftable prospect before the 2017 season, but he missed the campaign with the shoulder injury. He lacks next-level speed but has the size and hands to make a roster as a fifth receiver if healthy.
