PASS GAME ANALYSIS

When evaluating the tape, Kayshon Boutte's Athleticism stands out. Listed at 6-0 200lbs, Boutte has the physical traits to play outside or in the slot as needed. Boutte possesses excellent speed and agility, which is why he is such a threat to go the distance with the ball in his hands. His long speed allows him to get natural separation. Boutte has excellent football awareness; he does a good job locating the holes in coverage. Boutte is far from perfect. He has some concentration drops on his resume and can improve his route running. Adding double moves and being a better salesman at the NFL level will allow him to take his game to the next level. Boutte will need to work on his contested catch ability in 2022; if he can improve in critical areas, he will be the top receiver off the board in the 2023 NFL Draft.

RUN GAME ANALYSIS

In the run game, Boutte has the skill set to be effective on end arounds and jets sweeps if needed. He has the physicality to be an effective blocker in the run game.

FINAL REPORT

Boutte took the reigns as LSU's next big-time WR in 2021 before succumbing to an ankle injury midway through the season. Boutte would miss seven games in 2021 but still led the Tigers in receiving yards and TD's. He is a mismatch for opposing DB's, and his after-the-catch ability is next level. We project Kayshon Boutte as a top ten overall talent in the 2023 NFL Draft.
