Pos: 
Productive pass catcher with size and speed. Quickly releases off the line, immediately gets to top speed and uses his hands to separate from defenders. Gets vertical and exposes himself to the big hit in order to come away with the reception. Flexible, agile and plays with balance as well as body control. Nicely uses the sidelines, adjusts to the errant throw and displays soft hands with the ability to reach back and snatch the ball from the air. Works hard to make himself an available target and uses his frame to shield away defenders. Displays solid hand-eye coordination and works to pick up yardage after the catch.
Neg: 
Plays faster than his 40 time but isn’t a true home-run hitter. Struggles in battles. Seemed to level off last season after a terrific campaign in 2017.
Analysis: 
Meyers has been a consistent threat at North Carolina State the past two seasons and is an athletic prospect with a nice upside. He needs to improve his playing strength but has the potential and ability to develop into a productive third wideout.
