Pos: 
Long, dependable possession receiver with marginal speed. Displays solid route discipline, consistently finds the clearing in the defense and snatches the ball away from his frame. Displays quick, strong hands, plays like a big-bodied receiver and takes a pounding but holds onto the ball. Possesses outstanding length, offers the quarterback a big target and easily adjusts to the errant throw. Gets vertical, uses his frame to shield away defenders and makes the tough catch with opponents draped on him. Tracks the pass in the air and displays focus. Uses his hands to separate from opponents and fights throughout the play. Does not go down without a fight and picks up a lot of yardage after the catch.
Neg: 
Displays limited speed and quickness. Drops the easy reception on occasion. Cannot separate through routes.
Analysis: 
Arcega-Whiteside lacks the speed to be a vertical threat but has all the tools necessary to be a productive possession receiver at the next level. He must smooth the rough edges of his game but has the potential to develop into a productive second wideout at the next level.
