Pos: 
Nice-sized receiver with an underrated game. Fights with his hands to separate from defenders, uses the sidelines well and plays with excellent body control. Comes back to the ball out of routes, extends his hands and grabs the pass from the air. Lays out and extends for the difficult reception, tracks the pass in the air and displays good timing. Uses the sidelines well and exposes himself to the big hit in order to come away with the catch. Gives a lot of effort after the reception.
Neg: 
Lacks deep burst and a second gear. Occasionally lets some catchable throws slip through his hands.
Analysis: 
Ubosi is an underrated receiver who was the go-to guy in the UAB passing game and could not be stopped. He's a possession receiver with solid speed and is a developmental prospect who at the very least should be stashed on a practice squad this fall.
